BIOSTAR P67 1155 motherboard choice

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hello !

I need your opinion about this motherboard-
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813138289

I will be used with overclocked Core i5 2500K LGA 1155. As far as I have read, Biostart motherboard are very well suited for overclocking. What are your thoughts ? One more question- with this motherboard, which ram to choose ? I should be 2x2gb.

Thanks

For the same price you can get an AsRock P67 Extreme 4 which offers the same overclocking but more features.

For a 2x2GB kit, any 2x2GB 1600Mhz kit would work. Right now, for the price this WinTec AMPX kit is the best option.

Wow This mobo had slipped pass my radar (been smokin' Biostar to long). After reading the reviews for the AsRock P67, I will have to jump on board with you in recommending this mobo

Nothing wrong with the Biostar TP67XE. It is a solid overclocking board at competitive price. If you have a strong chip you can easily bench with x50+ multi(s).

It has a couple more SATA ports, an external USB bracket, and... yipee!

Honestly looks like a good board, but so does/is the Biostar. Same power phases.

This board looks like it's right there with the Biostar in value.

Keep in mind when P67 mobo shopping, that the days when mobo meant just as much as cpu batch in overclocking are gone.

I wouldn't recommend the Wintek ram in post #2, 1.9V RAM ?!?!?! Um, no.

RAM specs that are working well on the SB P67 platform are:

DDR3-1600, 1.5V, CL8

so for $64:

Or CL9 in red to match the Biostar:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231427

The Biostar is a *great* board, best value in my opinion. Plus, I *hate* blue. :-)

Newegg has a listing error:
1600 Mhz | 4GB Kit | CL8 | 1.65V | 240 | 2GBx2 | 3AXH1600C8WS4GK

That's the specs taken from Wintec's site.

They're 1.65v sticks.

Ack, newegg makes me look dumb again. Apologies Tator Tot.

That said, I think the 1.5V ram is best for OC'ing on the P67 platform. I've got some Vengeance 2x4GB 1600 CL8 running at 1866 9-9-9-24-1T @ 1.52V. Cold to the touch in the middle of a long prime95 session. Pricey tho, 3 times as much as the 2x2GB kits.

I have one more question regardin RAM, lets say that I buy a 2x 2GB RAM, but later I want to update to 8gb total. If I don't have possibility to buy the exact same RAM as I'm using now, what should I be looking for choosing the different manufactor RAM ? How it will behave if I have 2 stick of 2gb RAM of one manufactor and 2 stick of 2gb RAM from another one, given that all the stats are equall ?

Thanks
