New Motherboard

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I am looking into getting a new motherboard and am having trouble picking one out. I want it to have SLI capabilities and socket 939. I have nice RAM, check the signature, its coming monday. I want something that i could overclock with if i wanted to. I DONT WANT ANYTHING ASUS. I have had the worst experience EVER with my A8N SLI-deLuxe. I had to get the chipset fan replaced and it is currently being RAM'd because of its messed up bios. ||ITS BUGGY|| If anyone has had a good experience with their nforce4 board tell me. HElp me OUtzz

Try the EPoX EP-9NPA+ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813123246

Its a very good motherboard, I know a amd user that swears by their boards, I haven't heard anything bad about epox, and in all the reviews I've read about this board, it isn't a phoenominal overclocker, but I'll get you where you want to go.

I have substituted asus w/ epox, instead of using an A8V Deluxe in a system I was going to build I used the EPoX EP-9NDA3J, I used everything else the same that I have in my computer now (cpu, memory, videocard) and it turned out that the epox board got about 350+ more 3dmarks than I did in 3dmark05.

But if you would like to fine tune your computer and spend a little time on it, try out the DFI SLI-D, or DFI SLI-DR Expert.

Yea, its a good brand, its just overlooked. Try it out, I can guarantee you'll like it, I haven't had that particular board, so I don't know the bios options, but i'm sure that you will get a pretty good overclock with your 3500+.

Another vote for the EPOX board. It may not be an uber-overclocker like the DFI, but it still can compete with the best out there. I have been running my 9NPA+ULTRA for months now with no problems. A good overall board.
