recommend me a cheap m/b (p35)

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
MAYBE= raid for my music files (check post #24 for update)
it's either going on a quad or 45nm dual. i'd like to be able to get a clock of 3.6 or possibly higher for the quad, and be able to knock down 4.0 easy on the dual. i'm coming from nvidia's chipset, so i'm looking for a cheap, p35 raid m/b capable of reaching the above, given the correct circumstances...

keep in mind: i'm not a breathe, eat, and overclock type of dude, but i can manage myself around the bios options. don't want too challanging of a bios

thanks

If u want details on why you should buy it and why below my name it says MSI>ASUS than i can expand. actually its MSI>ALL
so ya get the MSI P35 Neo2 FRI
because MSI is win.

This is the board you want to fit your needs. The bios is so easy to OC (as you requested)! The typical settings for a 3.6GHz oc on a Q6600 are:

Assuming the CPU can handle 3.6GHz at 1.45v or less (this OC is very doable with these settings). These arent difinitive, it is all based on the CPU, but these settings are solid for the board itself and should get you started.

Advanced BIOS Features
CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E) Disable
CPU Thermal Monitor 2(TM2) Disable
CPU EIST Function (Note) Disable

MB Intelligent Tweaker(M.I.T.)
CPU Host Clock Control Enabled
CPU Host Frequency (Mhz) 400
PCI Express Frequency (Mhz) 100
System Memory Multiplier (SPD) 800

System Voltage Control
DDR2 OverVoltage Control: +0.--(default is 1.8v, so check your manufacturer specs)
PCI-E OverVoltage Control [Normal]
FSB OverVoltage Control +0.1v (might need +0.2 when running over 400 FSB)
(G)MCH OverVoltage Control [+0.1v (This is your northbridge voltage, might need +0.2 when running over 400 FSB)
CPU Voltage Control 1.40v - 1.45v (this is your CPU's vcore, it might need less then 1.40v, or it might need a little bit more... only testing will tell)

Depending on what bios version you have, you might have to press [CTRL+F1] in the main bios menu to access advanced memory timing options.

Here are the Q6600 specs:

Just make sure it's southbridge is ICH9R and not just ICH9. ICH9R means it has RAID capabilities.

I agree w/ the gigabyte ds3r consensus... So long as you truly wish to have raid capabilities, if raid isn't in the picture I'd get this board:

ABIT IP35-E for $69.99 after $30MIR

um i would get the Asus P5K-E basically the same thing as the P5K0 deluxe except with a bit less heat pipes, one less ethernet port 2 less internal USB 2.0 ports but same amount on the I/O panel. Has RAID an great OCer im sure mine can do 460+ should be more than you ever need unless you get something with a really low multiplier.

DFI Blood Iron or P35 Dark?

To my knowledge all DFI P35 boards support raid, they are known overclockers and you can get a BI used off some forum member for something like 100 bucks.

Otherwise, both Abit and Gigabyte boards are very solid, I've heard great things of them.
