Budget Motherboard for E2180 Overclocking

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am getting a budget build, and my processor of choice is the E2180. I need a motherboard that is about $80 that will let me do some good overclocking.

I have seen a Gigabyte one used in many builds, but I could not find it in stock at the stores I would like to buy from.

I will be buying from this site, so if you can get the link from there that would be great.

You'll have a hard time finding a decent OCing board for $80 new... especially from a Canadian site... I would suggest either the Gigabyte DS3-L or (better yet) the DFI Blood Iron for a nice OCing budget board...

Either can probably be found in our For sale section for $~50 (DS3-L) or $~80 (Blood Iron)

I say EP35-DS3L, some places are selling for $89 though.

The Abit IP35-E is excellent. I have a 2180 on it for my kids rig running at 3.2 ghz stable without a hiccup.

Its exactly the same board as the Abit IP35 Pro but not firewire and raid support (same bios too).

Its a board that not many people know able but is incredible value for the price.


direct canada has the IP35-v for $95 which is a slightly newer version

It's not available on that site but look for this in your $ range:

Abit IP35-E or Gigabyte DS3L is fine if you can find them over there. The BIOS is pretty user friendly. Usually, you fill up 14 or 15 options and the system is ready to go.
