May i know what commercial brand names for motherboards are adept at overclocking? I am currently looking at desktop motherboards handling some ram siphoning applications like adobe illustrator, photoshop, AutoDesk AutoCAD 2009, AUTODESK INVENTOR 2009, MATLAB etc. As it not feasible to purchase a workstation as i would literally burst my budget for purchasing one, thus i have relegated to a more versatile motherboard like desktop boards. Even though intel chipsets and processors lead the market in sales, it's main stream processors e.g. conroe does not allow tweaking of it's clock multiplier except the extreme editions which costs a bomb. Furthermore motherboards manufacturers using phoenix/award bios or ami bios would yield a more reliable overclocking experience? As i have a bad experience with intel-based motherboards (d865perl) thus i am looking at 3rd-party manufacturers' motherboard. Greatly appreciate any advise rendered, hope to hear from you guys soon thank you.
