Any SiS chipset suitable for overclocking?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Just curious, i'm gonna exchange my mobo (i845g, no agp TT) for an SiS mobo (didn't have anough money for an 865 one). So can you guy tell me an overview of SiS (sk478 series) performance? Can it catch up with Intel chipset?
Oh, and beside it, how about VIA one?

Performance wise and even overclocking an Intel chip, no other chipset will be as good as Intel's own.

I think SiS is a lot better than VIA but SiS can't come close to Intel's. But since that you can't go for the 865 than the SiS will do a good job.

Gotta agree.
There is no 478 chipset out there that OC's better than the 865 unfortunatally.

If your going to OC INTEL chipset all the way and for perfromance Intel all the way i really would advise against SIS.

Thank you all, but doesn't have enough money atm . And my current mobo is a bunch of ***** (agp slot is bad enough that make my fx 5200 run at the same performance with a gf2-mx =)). Just get the SiS mobo for the AGP slot, i865 will go to next 6 months plan )
Rep for you all, thx
