I'm using a Asus A8N5X on my San Diego 3700 and I got it up to 2.75 Ghz this weekend using just the stock heatsink/fan (my memory timings are loose as hell, though, which I may play with later). Ran Prime95 for 11 hours stable before I shut it off. The board seems fine for casual overclocking (which is what I'm doing), but if you want to go for the gusto, a DFI or better Asus board would probably be best (I'm not a big DFI guy, someone else can probably do a better job recommending a board than I can).

I could only get my FSB up to 250 x 11 before it wouldn't go higher, but I remember someone saying they got up to 260 with the board I have, so my memory or something else may be holding me back.

Oh yeah, and I didn't even pay $90 for my board.

I like the Abit crossfire board because the voltages can get up to 1.8 but they are sold out on every site i can find

i have the 3700 sd too and my maximum multipliers are 11x and i have the frequency at 253 but cant go any higher without problems

the zalman CNPS9500 is an excellent cooler just felt like puting that in there

You know, a really good mobo for Overclocking is the one I got, which is an MSI. I dunno what everyone else thinks, but my MSI is awesome for OCing. Simple user interface, and really easy to navigate. Check for the K8 bit Neo...

I've heard great things about the K8 Neo, supposed to be a really great budget board.

but the reason why you cant find the multiplier is becuase of the mother board.. if those bios arent from the high end boards then you wont find alot of options
I'd be willing to bet money that his board can OC as good or better than what you're using. Read up on his board and look at it's performance, it's an excellent OCer.

thanks for the feedback im gonna go bother that shop until they let me replace it. If anyone asks i have never ever overclocked anything

Edit: Forgot to mention i would probably go for the Abit crossfire one instead but they aren't around in NZ and probably wont be for some time. Also how much performance difference would there be between the Abit and the DFI ones?

Do you mean ASUS instead of Abit?
As far as I know, close to none.

I'm telling you, man! Get an MSI! They're cheap, and they're awesome OCer's.

hey sccr64472 by "his board" do you mean mine? because if you think my board is an excellent ocer then im really confused because it wont let me do dividers or adjust my cpu multiplier. Anyway i just got back and the place where i buy all my hardware from was all like sapphire is good i think its your ram or something

Does anyone actually think i can reach three ghz (or almost three) with my current configuration? i dident think that my ram is that bad for overclocking
