What SLI Board to get

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey All,

I have a 650i board right now and i cant overclock my Q6600 worth a damn. Also Ram slot # 1 is faulty.

I want to get something different. I am open to suggestions. I want to get my Q6600 G0 to atleast 3.0 GHZ, I want SLI, and I need digital optical out.

Here are a few I picked out.

this would be my choice http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813188026
It overclocks quads like crazy and it seems to be in your price range. I wish i would have waited a few more months and got this instead of what i have.

i believe i read a thread this morning and the cheapest SLI board chozart would recommend would be:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813188026


personally i'd get that one too (if i had the funds

but i'd keep my mind open on the MSI, but that's just me because seems MSI stuff in my possession just has never failed/died

Cheapest SLI board he would recommend.

The 650i is no good for Quads and isn't that great for high FSB's, the 680i is buggy for quads and full of FSB holes, it also doesn't work with 45nm quads.
