E8400 OCing Mobo - Page 3

post #21 of 31
I have a DFI LP DK X38, the one Kromm linked above. I run 500FSB 24/7 but I will tell you this BIOS is not for newbies. I have been at this for years and this BIOS is is something else I'll tell you that. It has every option in the world, if the if there is a way to tweak your hardware this BIOS has the option to tweak it. If you think that you can handle it then this MB is cheap and equally as powerful as any other MB on the market for much much less. Best MB I have ever owned hands down.

That isn't even worth it. running at x8 is noobish. I don't want to waste money on ATI.

Notice the 3-way CF score is higher. Drivers don't fully support 4-Way CF yet.
