Best 754 PCI-E Mobo...

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I'm going to have to upgrade to PCI-E sooner or later, seeing as I want to get a DX10 card as soon as they hit the market... What is the best PCI-E 754 motherboard out there, that will run at least a 300MHz FSB? I would perfer a non VIA chipset, but as long as the motherboard will allow for 4 SATA I or II drives. Price is no issue, only overclockabillity. And don't tell me to upgrade my pricessor to M2 or 939, cuz I don't wanna. I like my processor, besides, its not even a month old.

I don't know if it's the "best", but I have yet to read a negative review about it. I have one myself, but I have not tried it out yet because I am waiting to get a PCI-E video card.

The reason why things get bad reviews on newegg.com is the fact that 75% of the people who review things are:
1. Total N00bs
2. Don't own the product and just review the product based on information that "a friend", or stuff they have read in reviews on the internets or just the specs that newegg has posted, which can sometimes be misleading
3. Review the wrong product
4. Have no clue what the hell they are talking about
I WILL NOT buy a motherboard that is one of those more off-brands like ePox, FoxCon, Albatron or even better known boards like Gigabytes, because I know they will be crap OCers.
Thanks for your imput though.

Here is the one I have. I have mine at 245 FBS, but I don't have good memory to push my 3400 clawhammer to just how far it will go. I do have water cooling in my future, but from I understand the clawhammer isn't the best at overl****ing any way

Well, how far can you push it WITHOUT a divider? Like, not 1:1?
Edit: cool, that board looks good...
A lot of people running it at 300MHz FSB... I might buy it when I have the money, and wait for the next-gen GPU-s to come out in the summer.
Edit#2: Wow! That board is cheap.
This one may be the one to buy!

If you want a second gpu later then the Epox is a good board . But if your gonna stay with one card which iprobably be the case bacause you will have to change the cpu in the not to distant future i would go for the ASUS K8N4-E . i used one with my clawhammer for a while .Although i could,nt o/c the board much due to the limitations of the clawhammer core

I think it was 215 at 1 to 1 then it wouldn't boot. I have a Divider up now and I'm at 245. I did read that this board was able the get to 285 FBS, but I would have to find the link once again
