Read what I posted above. It's a great board, just be aware of the quirks. ONly 2 optical drives, and if you use 2 opticals, will HAVE to have a SATA HD to boot from.

That is the exact board I am currently using. And I know of at least 3 other people here who also use it, and love it.


I got my 2.8Ghz to 3.5 last night with only about 10 minutes work in the BIOS. It was stable under a 3 hour Prime95 stress test but I want to see the top end of it and tweak the memory before I run a longer test and then post my

get the P5WD2-E-Premium if you can afford it (just for future proofing as it will likely run the Conroe), otherwise get the P5WD2-Premium.

Stay away from anything "vlaue" if you want to tweak better performance out of it....

The pqi kit has nice timings, but is slow for DDR2





Corsair XMS DDR2 675

A little looser timings (because it's a faster speed DDR2), and more costly than the kits you listed.......but I have a single stick of this running at 4-4-4-7 right now with no voltage changes at 766Mhz....I am sure it will come down lower with the proper tweaking......


pqi Turbo DDR2 667

That's about the same price as the pqi kit you found, but is faster..........the P5WD2-Premium can handle up to DDR2 800, might as well take as much advantage of that as your budget allows.

i meant to ask to ask about the pqi you showed but i acedenly putted a slower one
so is it good if ill get p5wd2-premium and the pqi you showed?
will i be able to overclock???

is this mobo good??

for ocing??
if not im getting the p5wd2-premium and the pqi

I'm not specifically familiar with that board, but I have heard some bad things about ECS.

Also, it maxs out at a lower RAM speed (limits upgrades later), and uses ATI chipset, which I am not familiar with, but I have a standard rule of Intel chipset for Intel.


The P5WD2-Premium is, IMHO, one of the best boards out there, and it definatly has more features than that ECS......



If you're main concern is OCing, I can tell you from personal expirence....the P5WD2-Premium and a good PSU and good (non-value) RAM and you will be fine.

alright im getting the mobo you have and the pqi you showed and i got a 500w power supply aspire 18A on 12v rail but i got dual 12v rail so its more that 18a
will it be fine???

Good!

On the PSU part, you're going to need a good single massive +12v rail, because Intel CPUs are a bit power hungry and as far as I know, if you're going to overclock a Dual Rail PSU is most likely to suck......I had a Dual and an 18A single rail and it never cut it. But not all Dual Rail PSU are bad, have very few that are atcually a little bit better than others.

Recogmendations:
OCZ PowerStream 520W
OCZ ModStream 520W
ePOWER Tagan TG-480 480W
SPARKLE FSP550-60PLG EPS12V 550W
PC P&C 470W Silencer
Enermax Liberty 500W or 600W

And hopefully this time you choose the PQI 667 modules instead of the 533 you were posting, don't get the 533s.

For serious overclocking, dual 12 volt rails is the way to go. Something in the neighborhood of 30+ amps will handle all but the most intensive of systems. There are plenty of good PSUs in that range, and they are many higher level ones as well. The PSU in my profile, for example, has two 19 amp 12 volt rails, and those 38 amps aren't hardly stressed when I run my rig full out.

i got 16A on the first one and 18a on second will it be fine??
post #40 of 41
It should be as long as the rails are stable. There's no way to be absolutely sure about the stability of rails without having the PSU in hand, but the better brands are always good bets.
