P5K Deluxe just died; What Mobo should I get now?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Well, my P5K deluxe has died and I can't return it so I'm wondering what mobo I should pick up next.

The parts I have right now are:

Intel e8400 (45nm)
Crucial 2x1gb 1066mhz DDR2
eVGA 8800gts 640

Basically everything in my current sig minus the p5k.

So I want to get a new mobo that has support for PCIe 2.0 / future processors that will be coming out on lga775.

I was looking at the eVGA 780i FTW Edition mobo but I kind of want to stick to x38 / 48 because it seems more stable / cheaper.

Suggestions?

I would still try contacting ASUS about your board and see if they can do something. I know some of the dell (intel) motherboards have LONG warranty.

Otherwise please be sure to recycle your motherboard properly. In Oregon, we have at least two non-profit recycling facilities for computer hardware (NextStep, and FreeGeek). I suggest you find one and dump it there.

The 780i are proving to be more stable then the 680i, but the ASUS P5E is a great board. Are you OK with another ASUS?

I have my P5E running a 515 FSB with 1.43v to the NB. The X38 is a great chipset (the X48 are just higher binned X38s):



Just curious, why cant you RMA the board?

Basically it has come down to these two choices

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813188024 EVGA 780i FTW

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131227 ASUS Maximus Formula

I'm leaning more towards the eVGA just for the 3 SLI and the fact that alot of Maximus' are DOA.

But then again the Maximus is 1600/1333 and it comes with STALKER

The maximus Formula is a great board. It is the P5E with extra fan headers and temp sensors for the chipset (the P5E only has CPU and MB temps).

I recently built a system with the eVGA 780i and it has been 100% stable for 2 months! It will also run ram up to DDR2 1200. I have pushed the board's FSB to 525 (2100QDR) with the max 1.5v to SPP.

It all comes down to what video card setup you want.

I'd recommend my board to anyone.

OT: If you don't mind me asking, why aren't you rma'ing that board back to ASUS? Their rma dept is pretty good and that board is less than a year old.
