Good OC-ing board to complement E8400 CPU?! - Page 2

post #11 of 25
It is the same as the UD3P minus a PCI-e slot and TPM security feature.

It OC's like mad!

Only thing available in th UD3xx range is UD3LR, but that one is close to 157.43$ which is a lot, and the money i dont have unfortunately, and UD3R for 178.52$.....


Talk about expensive.... Jezzzzz

Updt: The more i look at it, the more i think i'll have to go lower than P45.... ...
Maybe a contender in lower range? P35/P43?

The Asus P5Q would be a good choice.

So if i want performance i better add some money and get P45 instead of P43/P35....

OMG this country sucks ... everything bloody expensive...

Only thing affordable in P45 range is GA-EP45-DS3LR @ 105 euro...
Or maybe a used motherboard... will check on that soon, to see whats available..

Updt: Might get a E7200 and a better board, i save almost 50 euro if i go with the E7200...
Is it worth the upgrade then? 6mb cache sounds a lot better than 3mb, especially while gaming...
I read that clock to clokc comparison E8400 & E7200 (both at 3ghz), the E8400 leads performance in gaming by up to 15%, which is a lot...

Or maybe get a good board, low end CPU (E5200 maybe?), and then upgrade later to Quad Core? Would an OC'd E5200 do a better job than 9950 BE?!

Check this out...

Whatcha think?


Updt 3:
Ok guys, a milion dollar question... OC-ing on P45 compared to OC-ing on P35???
and another one, PCIe 2.0 vs PCIe 1.1 performance (i have HD4850)???

Hey mate...

I had a talk with my retail guy, good news for me...
We actually agreed that ill replace my mobo/cpu combo for P45/E8400 combo almost with no extra charge... maybe something like 10-20eur extra charge, which i consider a good deal!

We were talking about EP45-UD3R mobo from G-Byte and E8400 E0 if we find one... I got similar prices on (EP45-UD3R, EP45-DS3R, MSI P45 Platinum, Asus P5Q Pro, Asus P5Q SE, DFI LanParty JR P45-T2RS)... And i read a review that UD3R cant go over 500mhz FSB...

Anyways im leaning towards UD3R, DS3R or P45-T2RS... atho P45 Platinum from MSI looks sweet...any info on these?

Final tips maybe?

Maybe go wth a Q6600 instead of E8400?

Wow man, that's great!

Incredible deal actually. Early Christmas?

And about the processors. If you're more gaming oriented - go with the E8400. If you're multi-taksing, get the Q660 instead. You'll benefit more from the 2 extra cores than the increased speed.

Whatever review you read that could not get the UD3R over 500 FSB had to be due to memory limitation or CPU. That board holds the DDR2 world record of 1600+Mhz.


The UD3R is the same as the UD3P minus a PCI-e slot and TPM security features.

Here is my E8400 with the older C0 stepping doing 580 FSB.

Okey i know this might be like changing minds too many times, but i think ill go with the EP45-UD3R and E5200 for now... kinda like the price on the E5200 at ~70euro, and i can get the UD3R for as low as 115eur...

Trying to save some money for the second 32" LCD TV

I think it'll be more than enough as a first Intel rig since Pentium 133mhz ...
If i get dissapointed i'll go with the one of the Quads in the future...

What i wanted to ask is if anyone had experiences with E5200 and UD3R (or UD3P)? Have my HR-01 Plus already lapped and planning on lapping the E5200 (lol if i mess it up, at least it was only 70eur ).
I'm really interested in how OC would go... i mean 200fsb and so? Would it have any impact on overclocking?

I really dont know how DDR2 is associated with OC-ing in Intel rigs....well i actually have an idea, but i'd like if its not too difficult for you to explain it to me in a few short sentences?

I'm guessing its not possible to go 4.6ghz on AIR at 1.47V... = sucide maybe?



Tnx guys for all the replies.... rep too

Yeah running my CPU at 4.6Ghz was just to see how far it will go and not for 24/7 use. 1.5v is not suicide for short runs IMO.

OCing your ram really depends on the ram itself. If it won't do high FSB then you will be limited on the OC.
