LGA 775 Question.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Alrighty Current rig is

CPU : Q9650 @3.33ghz 370x9 H70 cooler. 46C max load.
Motherboard : MSI P7n-Sli Fi
Ram : Corsair Dominator 1066 @2.1V
Video Card : GTS 250 1gb x2 SLI

question is what is a more friendly overclocking board for 775 thats still being made?

i can get the CPU to around 3.8ghz but it seems to not want to go higher.

Is it worth the money to jump to a motherboard that supports ddr3 RAM and responds better to an overclock? what are my options?

Future plans are
Nvidia 560ti -sli
1600mhz ram
SSD drive

i just want to not have to change platforms just yet im too happy with my q9650's performance to warrant a jump to i7

Also it'll probably be worth it to get the ddr3 mobo since you will eventually have to upgrade to a ddr3 system in the future anyways. However, if you get the ddr3 mobo you can't get the 680i =/

Only really upgrade is a 790i... Though I doubt you will get much more out of that CPU.

If you get a single GPU and forget about SLI you could try and get a gigabyte P45 board.... (you may be able to do the SLI hack if you still want SLI).

680i's didn't do too well with quads. Go with an intel chipset, the p35 and p45 are solid.

concerning the 790i nvidia boards.

Where on earth can you pick one of these things up haha?

seems like this will be my fix. 2 x16 pci-e for SLI
1600mhz ddr3 supported.
775 compatible. man shoulda bought one of these boards in the first place.

If you are determined to stay with socket 775 then the 790i is the way to go. Otherwise it may be time to go to a different processor format.

Also near the top of the OCN pae theres a black bar that the "Duck" is walking back and forth on. If you click on "User CP" and then go to the left side of the next page click on "Add System" you will be able to add all your current system stas so that when you ask for help we can all see what it is you are working with.

P5Q Turbo and EP45-UD3P/R are the best 775 clocking boards available. But they are only DDR2.
post #9 of 11
790i uses ddr3, so if you want to use your ddr2 then a 780i or FTW is the way to go......and if you got a 45nm quad stay away from a 680i

The OP's current board is has the 750i chipset. The jump wont really be worth it (not that any mobo upgrade will be).
