Good overclocking mobo? Socket 478..Intel Pwnage is Reborn!!

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I've put away all the money I need for my next build and I got a little bit of money left. Time to ressurect Intel Pwnage.

Processor: Intel Pentium 4 2.4A

Mobo: That's what I need help with.

Ram: Geil one? No idea as of now

Harddrive/case/Psu Cheapest I can get em.

So help me with a mobo. I want to hit around 4 ghz and I'm looking into getting a bigwater SE. I've got a ASUS p4s800-MX That's just lying around basically, Could I use it? What kind of oc results would I get with it? Also, With a 2.4A at around a nominal mhz of 3.4-4.0 ghz Would I receive a big gain over my current setup? Of course using My current video card. Would 4 ghz and an x800 pro last me 'till say next christmas at the latest?

Give me some good Mobo's. It's time to get serious, Get manly. Grr.

Gimme some feedback, What do you all think?

Anything made by ASUS is typically a good change for OCing. It may come down to the BIOS and it's settings for FSB, Multipliers, and vCore adjustments. here's a link to a site I found with some general information that should be at least somewhat helpful to you....Just dont make my mistake and go with a chepo ECS...blah :-P good luck

Asus p4p800se is decent for a 478 board.

no sense in buying Geilone for for that setup, some good pc4400 Geil ultra Platium would do just fine.

You may want to check out the P4P800 SE or the P4P800-E Deluxe. If you want to spend a bit more money, the P4C800-E Deluxe is nice as well for a bit more money. Any of those options will overclock well (250+ MHz); it's just a matter of how many bells and whistles you want. You won't have to go too crazy with your RAM. Any good DDR400 should do well for you as you're only going to push it about 10% to get that CPU to 4 GHz (assuming 1:1). If you want to run a divider in favor of the RAM, you could always get something a lot faster.

I already have this board, Sitting here. So I plan on using it, Of course if you guys say otherwise I wont.

I'm just wondering what the max fsb is. And does it have pci/agp lock? I haven't a cpu to test it out. But does it have all those options? E.G. Memory timings, memory voltage, all of the goodies? And what kind of vcore does it allow? Sorry I'm incredibly new to intel But one thing I do know is if I want to O/C sky high I should get the 2.4A. It's priced well.

Does this mobo have the ability to oc well? If not what should I get?

Yea, the P4P800 line is good, but their based on the springdale chipset, I would go for the Abit IC7-G or Max3 series with the canterwood chipset (875P). They are the best for the Prescott core, but the boards can be hard to find. The P4P line is a lot more common, and probably cheaper. If you want the best of the best, get the IC7-Max3 (I had that same processor and motherboard)

Also, dont forget to read up on Prescott chips, I have a 2.4A just lying around the house actually, but I opted for the 2.53 northwood. They don't get near as hot as those Precotts like to, so watch that.

Yes, the P4P line has all the goodies, the agp/PCI lock, ect. It's the top of the line springdale chipset board for Asus so you should expect all those goodies.. With decent cooling you should hit 3.6 (18x200).. After that, you might run into some droop, but you should be good.

Get the 2.4A, seriously.. It reaches crazy clock speeds. You can save money on memory because this processor runs at 533FSB.

I know prescott's are hotter, Hence the watercooling. So which board is cheapest and overclocks good? Seems I will have to say goodbye to my socket A R.I.P.

I remember some one saying that If i go over 800FSB(quad pumped) It get's really unstable? So Am i really only safe up untill 200FSB or what is that all about?
