That asus board will probably give you a better OC than that Abit board, though i would go for this DFI LanParty mobo, this thing is money...

forgot to tell that i will be using stock cooling until further notice

but thanks for the suggestion, it's a little bit higher than what i can pay, but so's the abit.

once again Asus win the round. probably not the deluxe though

That will give you a good OC too, heck you can't beat the asus manufacturing That's what makes your board stand out.. Well, ill hear back from you when you hit the 4.0

Most Asus boards come with the AI Booster that will allow you to OC in Windows, but overclocking in the BIOS will give you the best results.

how do i make AI booster work. when i boot Windows, a window open saying AI booster function as been disabled. i know i have to go to the Bios to activate it, but i can't find where in the bios




edit: ok, i made it work. i don't know what happened. now, i just have to figure out how this thing works

well, aparently everything i try make my computer freeze, or not boot.

my temp is 41c, is that too high

if everything go as planed, i should be able to buy a new air cooling. which brand is best: Zalman, Vantec, Cooler Master, or any suggestion is welcomed

here's the webpage of the store i will buy the stuff. all the price are in canadian$, so any suggestion is good if under 100$


thanks

What exactly are you doing that's causing the system to crash? Upping the clock speed a few (3 to 5) MHz shouldn't make things unstable, at least not right at the start.

For a 530, 41°C is a very reasonable load temperature. You can go up to around 65°C under full load without worrying, though something in the 55°C range is better for sustained load.

For aftermarket cooling, I suggest either Thermaltake or Thermalright. They make some of the best heatsinks on the market.

ok, now i used AIbooster the right way, instead of doing stupid things that made my rig crash. sorry for that

anyway, now, i think it's fine. when i boot, aibooster show that my cpu is 52°c, then it go down to 42°c.

i got up to 3.6ghz (240x15,fsb=960)

i ran 3dmark05 whitout cpu test and temp got up to 54°c, and scored 7546

then i ran it with the cpu test, and the computer crashed the minute it started the cpu test. is that normal?

then with all the same setting i played a little Fear for about 10 minutes and everything went fine.

now i'm afraid to go higher whitout a proper cooling device (i have my eyes on the THERMALTAKE BIG TYPHOON CL-P0114)

any thougth on the result?

have you ran prime95 to test for stability? run that for atleast 6-8 hrs, and the big typhoon is the best air cooling you can get... so definatley go for that for further OCing
