ASUS M4A79XTD EVO $69, is there a better budget oc'ing board?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm getting a few things together to make some dice runs. I flogged my sig rig pretty hard on a dice slushbox and I'd rather not push my luck again. I don't care about board features as long as it clocks high and supports AM3 chips.

I have a Sempron 140 on the way I picked up for $25 shipped along with the $89 Koolance dry ice pot.

Can someone recommend a better, cheap overclocking board than this one?

Did you just say $69 for an M4A79XTD EVO?!
My god, that's deal of the year! GO FER IT
Note that it has a vDroop which can make it tough to overclock but I doubt it'll be apparent with a 45W TDP processor.

It's a good board, a lot of overclocking features. I paid 100AR for it a year ago.

I just paid $99 US for that board. I was worried that it just got cheaper after I made a purchase (Murphy's law) and then I noticed that was an open box...so you're likely not going to have the manual and / or some of the other contents that come in the original package...but by the sounds of it, that's not problem (you have an EX PC)
