Best Ocing s939 board for less than $100

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
What is the best OCing board for under $100? I really want a DFI LanParty Ultra-D, but it's just a little bit out of my pricerange, and I don't think my PSU would be able to power the board well enough. I was thinking either the EPoX EP-9NPA+Ultra ($94), the Asus A8N-E ($93), or the BIOSTAR N4SLI-A9 ($79). SLI would be cool, but I probably would not use it anytime soon, so it's definently not a requirement. I've heard good things about Biostar boards, but of course, I've also heard good stuff about Asus and EPoX, too.

Edit: This will be paired with a 3700+ San Diego, a Big Typhoon, and BH-5 G.Skill RAM.

Definately the DFI Lanparty SLI-DR expert! best OCing options, but a little tricky at times for some. That is the BEST. But since you want a cheaper one, get the Asus one you were talking about.

My ABIT Kn8 Ultra isn't such a bad board, and I think it goes for $80 now. I used to have it clocked at 2530mhz using 230FSB, and it was prime stable. I set it back to standard speeds becaues my crappy PSU was only pushing 11.6 volts through the 12 volt rail.

Sorry, I forgot to think about price, I edited. But here are some pretty good ones, your A8N, this one looks decent, and here is your BIOSTAR. I hope these will suffice!
