IS this motherboard good ? - Page 2

post #11 of 37
depends what you mean by better, in price or in functionality. the P5KC has the DDR3, RAID and Crossfire capabilities which might be useful over the GA-P35-DS3 if you intend to use them now or later.

No it cant, it will run only 1.


I have a couple points to make for you. First, the P5KC is picky with ram, I mean really picky. You are better off with a P5K-E. Second, All Intel chipset boards, which the P5KC is, only supports 2 ATI cards in what is called crossfire. If you want to run 2 NVIDA cards, look into getting the eVGA 750i FTW motherboard. And just so there is no confusion, any Intel or NVIDIA chipset board can run either card in a single card solution.

Yes it can run 2 ATI cards in crossfire. Just be aware that the P35 chipset (with the exception of the ASUS Blitz which has an addition chip to split the PCI-E x16 into 2 X8 slots) will run the first card at the full PCI-E x16, but the second at only X4. I dont know the impact on performance, but I think x4 will hinder the card. If you want full x16 to both slots, look into the ASUS P5E, Maximus Formula or Rampage Formula for DDR 2. For DDR3 look at the ASUS P5E3 wifi, deluxe or premium.

Here is a quote from ASUS website about the P5K-C and crossfire:
Quote:
* ATI CrossFire Technology
ATI´s CrossFire boosts image quality along with rendering speed, eliminating the need to scale down screen resolutions to get the high image quality you want. CrossFire ignites with the higher antialiasing, anisotropic filtering, shading, and texture settings you desire. Adjust your display configurations, experiment with your advanced 3D settings, and check the effect with a real-time 3D-rendered preview
within ATI´s Catalyst™ Control Center to rule your CrossFire system.

Overclocking basically lets you get a cheaper processor to perform like a more expensive one. As for overheating just make sure you have an aftermarket heat sink such as the TRUE. If you encounter any problems it can usually be fixed by lowering down your overclock or by adding more voltage. We are all here to help too.

personally i choose GIGABYTE boards, much more cheaper than the asus. Gigabyte p35 ds3l for just 100$, all solid caps and tested excellent OCer. im using the big brother of the ds3l (p35 ds4) and it brings my q6600 from 2.4 to 3.6 stable.
