Wich 750i Mobo Is Best?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Moving my q6600 and 8800gt's etc onto a new board.

Asus P5N-D

MSI P7N Zilent *Zalman Limited Edition*

EVGA 123-YW-E175-A1

Just wondered wich is best outta these? or would a 680i option be a better choice?

Many Thanks

To be honest i'm not sure which is the best all I know is that i'm ordering the EVGA one tomorrow from that exact same site ;] I've heard 680i's arn't that good for Quads too.

I usually... always go with EVGA if it's available. I can break it and get a new one fast.

does the northbridge need a extra fan and what size as im looking at oc'ing and ive already read your mod guide 10acjed's
post #7 of 17
It comes with a NB fan, its not on when it comes, they give it for ppl who want to OC...

Ya gotta luv a company that encourages OCing..

My voltages are listed on page one of the 750i OC thread and in my guide, NB stays between 29-35c.
I recommend the pencil mod, you will end up with .03 vdroop from idle to load...

Whats the VID of your Q6600.. if its under 1.30 Id say you should be able to reach 3.6..

My VID is 1.3125 hence the 3.4 max OC


Also....

No offense, but dont ya think its time for a monitor LOL
