I just did a Study of the new 955 Motherboards and I came up with the top 4 best overclockable Motherboards. And they are starting with Number 4.

4. MSI790FX-GD70


3. Gigabyte MA790XT-UD4P


2. Gigabyte MA790FXT-UD5P


And the Number one top overclockable board for the AM3 series 9x5 is....

1. ASUS M4A79 with the highest overclock of a 955 @ 4.1 ghz. On air Xiggy and an airy Case.

If you took the results from the 955 overclocking thread it may not be completely accurate as no one has the DFI(except some unknown guy), or Biostar boards which are known to be great overclockers AND nobody has the crosshair III board which I'd expect to overclock a little more than M4A79T Deluxe on air since it's ASUS's flagship AM3 board.

Also, at identical voltages, my Mugen 2 makes my cpu run cooler than the xiggy when I have slightly higher ambient temps. I can't overclock as high as others probably because I can't overclock my CPU-NB voltage and my NB is limited. Regardless of that, the Foxconn board still isn't that great. I can easily get 3.8 out of my 955 though.

One last thing.......if you look at the thread you'll notice that the top overclocked ones are on M4A79 Deluxe motherboards which are AM2+/DDR2 motherboards. Phenom IIs achieve higher overclocks on em because of what me, and others, believe to be matured BIOS's. The Gigabyte UD5P is the real AM3 top overclocker.

I like your style. A very thought out and good argument. I am sure that you are very correct in your assessment of the other board. I would like to use your Comment on my new thread on this subject.

Rep Up. For the very solid argument.

Thanks and reps for those that helped me in my doubts. I will be using the front audio connectors as my speakers are far enough away and sometimes I use headphones. What I don't think I will need for the moment is the front eSata connector for an external drive.

btw. I have another question although this is maybe not the place to ask

If I install the working hard disks from my actual system into this new system do I HAVE to format the disk or would it be enough reinstalling Windows and the rest of the software? I wouldn't like to loose data (holiday pics, music, documents, etc...)

I hope to have my system up and running in the next few days.

You're asking in the Storm Scout thread so people are going to say storm scout.

Storm Scout vs. Antec 902 = Storm Scout.
They both have black interiors but the 902 has louder fans and costs like 30 bucks more.

Storm Scout vs. Antec 900 = Storm Scout.
They're approximately the same price. The 900 does not have a black interior or sufficient cable management options.

Storm Scout vs. Antec 300 = Storm Scout.
You'll need to buy 3 fans for the Antec 300 which will make them about the same price but you'll be lacking a window, black interior, and cable management holes. I'd really suggest the 300 if you're going to mod it, though.

Storm Scout vs. 690 = Storm Scout.
There are spots for 7 or 8 fans while the 690 only comes with 2 or 3. Need I say more?

If you're on a budget, I'd recommend the Gladiator 600. It's essentially the same case as the storm scout but is lacking the window, black interior and the option to turn off stock fan LEDs. Still a great bargain though.

Also, these are clearly just how I see things. I really enjoy modding so I'm going to buy an antec 300 in the future for my sister's build.

Yes if you format you will loose your picture. If you put a new motherboard with an old OS You will have to reformat and reinstall programs.

Solution. Transfer all your personal and Picture data to DVDs or Flash drive then wipe the drive with a quick reformat and reinstall your OS and then your programs.

Why. Because microsoft OS marries the motherboard that it is connected to. And the only way to get the Old OS with a New Motherboard is to get an annulment.. LOL.

We are going to tell you the Storm Scout because we believe that it is such a good case that we started a Club to honor it. Why would ask this on this thread.

But I will answer your question anyway.

The Storm Scout is more than worth the money you pay for it. It has a blacked out interior. quick release and install drive ports. Wire management secure points on all important areas of the case. Lighted fans are switched and there is hardly any modding to do with this case.

On the other hand. Only the more expesive 902 antec has the blacked out interior but at the rate that Antec is upgrading the 900 series. It will be another 5 years before it reaches the quality level of the CM Storm Scout.

I would understand if you don't like the case that's your business. You have the right to buy any case that you would like to buy. The Antec 900 is a great case if you do some wire management modding and you don't mind painting the insides and you don't mind the high dust accumulations on the front end.

I personally have no data on the Cooler Master 690. Ask someone who knows about that.

You left one very important thing off your reasons for having the Scout, and for me it was one of the biggest selling points when ever I buy a case, the looks.
