E8400 build

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
What's a good P35 motherboard and RAM to easily get an E8400 to 4.0ghz? I'll be using a TRUE-120 to keep it cool.

I forgot to mention that the motherboard needs to have eSata.

Abit P35 Board
A decent board and not to much after rebate.
For the RAM if you wanna go with DDR2, i'd stick with the Crucial Ballstix. Like I said before, i've heard it overclocks really well

Just asked a friend of mine. He said for that RAM(Crucial Ballistix), hes seen as high as 1152MHz OC'ed. Average tho, he said about 1000-1050MHZ. I'm considering getting some to replace the RAM that I have already for my new system.

Do you know if the Abit IP35 supports the E8400 out of the box? Because I don't have any other LGA 775 processors.

some people have said that the board has some trouble with the e8400 running even with the bios fix due to some kind of an "overheating" misreading by the motherboard. but others have said that it works out of the box. but read some of the reviews for it on the egg, theres plenty of em (500+)
