Recommend a motherboard

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
So, i need a mobo to go with my second computer.
The parts which will go into it, is the parts below, but a 3700+ instead of a 3000+, and a another chassi. I was wondering, do the southbridge really need a fan? because otherwise a fanless would be cool. Price: around the price of a dfi ultra-d. In best case i may be able to get a dfi sli-dr. But muffin seems to have something against dfi, so i'm not sure.

the best mobo's ive seen and read reviews about are the DFI lan party mobo's like that one you posted above

asus mobo's seem to be quite highly rated too

but to match the ultra-d's price, the Gigabyte K8N Pro SLi nForce4 SLi mobo is good and is about the same price

Which ever you chose be sure that the MB can fully utilize the BH RAM's voltage needs

Ive had several problems with my 2, the first one just stoped supplying power to the memory, got it RMAed, this ones chipset died. Also, it has "cold boot" issues with BH-5 ram because of the way the power to the ram was designed. It has also killed several sticks of BH-5 for me. (all replaced under OCZ warranty). However, while it worked it worked wonderfuly.

I dont mean to bash on the boad or anything, im just warrning you those issues are out there. If you want me to I can find the links for info on the "cold boot" (from OCZ) and the engineering of the power to the ram.(from DFI Street)
