XFX nForce 750i SLI?

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
How good is this motherboard, apparently in OC'ing mode it can run 1800MHz FSB which is just incredible yet silly because a CPU can't even go that far can it?!

But back to the point, does anyone own this M/B and what do you think of it? Worth paying £100 ($160) for?

It's ok but most intel P45 and X48 boards can OC higher. I had a 780i and it was a pain to OC with, switched to a X48 and loving it.

EDIT: To add some more, the only reason to own a NVIDIA board really is for SLi.

1800Mhz QDR actually translates to 450Mhz FSB, which is not at all incredible. But given that the XFX version is a reference nvidia board it should do pretty well.

Also look into the EVGA 750i FTW.

YOSHIBA are you stalking my posts? (just kidding)

I saw the asus P5Q Pro which is just as good performance, better in price, not as good with looks.

Actually, no motherboard can beat the looks of that XFX nForce 750i

The P5Q Pro should hit a higher FSB also, because of the 750i using a 780i NB and a nForce200 in the same area it dumps out a ton of heat. This heat gets blown into the back of the GPU which causes a rise in temps.

It has the same layout as the NB of my 780i:

All 750i and 780i boards have this problem. The chipset is really just the 650i/680i with a PCI-E 2.0 chip linked with it.



I would recommend the 750i FTW. eVGA has made some decent improvements which allows the board to surpass 500 FSB with dual cores (thats over 2000 QDR), both PCI-E slots are 16x which is not true for reference 750i boards, and the board has all solid caps. When it was released, people were selling off their 780i boards for it.
