Good OC'ing Mobo for Opteron 165?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone...

First off - this site looks amazing. I can't wait to come back here many times during my OCing experiences.

I'm pretty much sure I'm going to get the Dual Core Opteron 165. By pretty much, we're talking about 95-98%. I was fine selecting parts to upgrade my old computer, up until the motherboard...

I'm completely new to OCing, and technically Opterons aren't supposed to run on anything but server motherboards (even though we all know they will). So, ease in OCing (and stability) is a bonus to me. The only other necessity would be that I have to have 1 PCI Express x16... and I guess a couple standard PCis to move my old cards over.

I'm looking for suggestions on a 'good value' motherboard (ex: not necessarily the cheapest - but for the features it has - it's amazing). I'm preferrably looking to spend < $100 on the motherboard... but I can spend more if necessary (hoping to keep it under $150).

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Welcome to the Forums!

This is the same board I have: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813136152 its a really solid board with tons of OC features. Its not for the novice though. But there are plenty of guides to help you out.
