Planning on getting this ASRock, is this good enough for Water cooling?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I just recently built a PC and joined this forum, but I gave that PC to my sister for x-mas (a sempron) so now I am building myself another PC, one of those BE555's 2x.

I am going to do water cooling this time and was really hoping to find a mobo with super high vcore so i can push my CPU to the limits on water cooling,

The PC i gave my sister was BIostar and it seems like my cpu voltage options was limited to about 3 settings and I couldn't go higher.

I just wanted to ask here to make sure I don't order a bad motherboard and find out that my cpu voltage options are limited.

heres what I am planning on getting so far:

I heard ASRock is apart of ASUS? is it better to just get ASUS brand or Gigabyte or something? I just want to make sure i have all the options available to push my OC.

Looks good to me . Also, those 550BE's are monsters. You'll enjoy it.

haha ninja fix!(i re-edited the original post now) thanks for clearing that up, yeah i originally planned on getting 550, but i thought I would take my chances with the 555 and try to unlock it, sooooo sorry for the confusion.

i was also scouting for this asus motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131673

but now iam getting feedback that that ASRock is ok... so i might as well get the ASRock, i kinda wanted USB3.0 (but not sure if i REALLY need it...) but going with ASUS i would most likely stick with USB 2.0 because those motherboards are actually cheaper. but not by much.

I wouldn't get it. No Mosfet cooling, I made that mistake on my last mb Gigabyte 770 UD3 and I couldn't pass 3.8Ghz on my 550BE but that was in X4 unlocked mode. I'm not saying it is a bad board if you can get some cooling on those mosfets. try find a board in your budget with better cooling since you plan on playing with voltages. Hope it all goes well with your 550BE. Mine was a beasts unlocked

Not anymore.

ASRock boards a fine, just make sure you read reviews and look at the BIOS layout and physical layout of the board... like any motherboard you'd consider buying
