X48 DDR2 recommendations...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,

Hoping to get some input from you knowledgeable bunch on a new X48 DDR2 mobo

Basically going to retire my aging 975x P5W with an X48. All components I currently have are in my sig. I'm planning on upgrading the mobo now and replacing the GFX cards in a few months.

So what would you recommend to get the best overclock out of a Q6600?

I am very happy with my Rampage X48 MB, I have had no issues with going to 3.4 on the Q6600 the first day I had it up. I am working on 3.6 now with 4gig of DDR2-800 ran @ 1066 , I have booted to windows as high as 3.8 and run programs just not P95 stable.

I've had my eye on the Rampage. I was hoping to get an overclock in the 3.4 - 3.6 range so your report is good news .

I'll have a look at the DFI, although I've never had a DFI. I'm currently running an Asus and Gigabyte Mobo. Might give it a go.... just for the change.

As hard as these mobo decisions are it's always nice to be making them

I'm slightly surprised you haven't heard of DFI, they're regarded as enthusiast boards, perfect for people who frequent OCN. At any rate, I have the DFI DK's X38, the X48's little brother...and if the X48 is ANY improvement over my board, then you must get it for any price, including selling you car. I OC'ed my E6400 an entire GHz to 3.2 with it, using 2x2GB G.Skill 1066. I really couldn't be happier with the one I have, so I'm sure you'll like DFI. =D
