Which MoBo is the best overclocker?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I would like to know which motherboard with the P35 or X38 chipsets will overclock a E6850 the best?

Then, I would like the know which motherboard with the 680i or 780i chipsets will overclock the E6850 the best?

So in the end I can make a comparison of other features from the best of each to help me decide which motherboard would be best for me. $285 maximum price for the board. This info would really help me out .

My Abit IP35 Pro is amazing!

It also has uGuru which is a must for locking in your final 24/7 stable OC. It allows you to easily/safely/stably adjust your FSB and voltage settings in Windows.

I just finished reading a review on that board and it seems pretty solid, I will have to keep that one in mind.

a Gigabyte GA-X38-DQ6 would do nicely. It pushed my e6750 to 4.0 Ghz (500 FSB) with 4 Sticks of ram at 5-5-5-15, 1000 Mhz.

i Say the X38-DQ6 has Amazing potential because i have seen Gomeler on his blog post at a wopping 589fsb with Dice of course. but with air i could hit 533fsb it depends. many factors in what is the best but if you want the best of the best check this out. with Ln2 but still none the less amazing.

http://valid.x86-secret.com/records.php

according to that - the MSI P35
but i personally like DFI the best then Gigabyte, but the DFI is harder to tweak on becuase it is a very finicky board.

Ive gone 550FSB + no prob with this mobo. Probably the best OCing mobo i've ever had, even though the chipset is the outdated P965.

I think I may go with the GIGABYTE GA-EX38-DQ6, It seems to be a very good overclocker, and it has all the features I want. I do have one question though, the actual board I want is the GIGABYTE GA-X38-DQ6 but it doesn't seem to be available anywhere. Is the EX38-DQ6 any different than the X38-DQ6??
