Need suggestions on Micro ATX Motherboard

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a AMD 64 4000 laying around collecting dust on the box. It was my main chip then I purchased a AMD 165 about a month ago so I'm going to build a LAN box. I'm looking at purchasing this case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811144162 along with this HDD http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136003
Now i'm trying to find a good motherboard that I can use my old 6600GT PCI card with and be able to OC the 4000 with. Any suggestions?

yupp, check out this thread at that "other" forum. Very nice info on a whole lot of m-ATX boards

http://www.hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=900405

i've read a lot of that thread, as i almost built a SFF system. the best IMO is this jetway board, but do some reading in there before you decide.

I had 2 biostar 6100's . Both were solid BUT both had faulty Ethernet ports, a common problem about 4 months ago with this board. They may have sorted this problem out by now, check out neweggs reviews to see.

Excellent mobo overall, i hit 305fsb with no probs. Could have gone higher with a better HSF. Excellent OCing options, honestly this board is like the dfi for mATX.

The case , if you have ever seen it in person at frys, is ugly as crap. I wanted one really bad until i saw in person. Not as small as you would hope, but you CAN crame a ton load of crap in it. During my quest for the ultimate mATX monster....which i gave up on due to the 2 bad boards....i cam across THIS!!!!! so sexy great cooling, insane cooling actually. And its not that bad of a price, bust out the ruler and realize that its pretty small and very LANable. I'd pick this over the qpack anyday.

Good luck have fun.

Hey, I just finished building my mATX computer. I suggest the Biostar TForce-939 board, for it's many OCing options (If you look under the AMD CPU and AMD Memory sections, you'll find screenshots of both the mem OCing and CPU OCing part of the bios, just look for my name as the thread starter). As for the case, I have what "what?" recommend, and it really is beautiful. Amazing design, easy to put everything in. Cooling is much better than the QPack's single fan. If you've seen a older, cheap dell case, that's about the size of it.
