Out of these 3 motherboards, which one do you think would overclock the best - Page 3

post #21 of 27
It should overclock slightly better, be a hell of a lot safer at high overclocks. It'll support the very best processors AMD currently has to offer.

DDR3 RAM will run faster and save you power in the meantime. It'll also be usable in just about every other computer configuration for the next 3-5 years (I imagine), until DDR4 comes along.

It should also run cooler (because of the heatsinks), last longer, have a lower risk of burning your house down hen you leave it on overnight and you might even see mundane things like usb and hard drive speeds improving perceptibly.


Occasionally, between a low and a high quality motherboard, you'll see 1-5 fps difference in games. This is a good board, and while I'm not telling you that the performance jump will be through the roof, every perk I've listed is true.


It'll also let you expand your graphics performance later cheaply by adding a second GPU via crossfire (or potentially sli hack). It'll do this while giving you good airflow between the cards (a real rarity).

I'm pretty sure it's worth it and that the open box (providing it gets there in perfect working order) will be one of the best value motherboards I've ever seen.
I wish you luck, and be sure to post back about it as soon as you get it. I'm jealous of your board.

Can I set it my old 8800gts 320mb card up in it as a physx card? And using a 8800 gts 320mb card pointless or good? Like I don't know how high of physx it could run on 8800gts 320mb.

It should be fine if you can power it. I don't know much of your power supply, but it should be up to the task. There ought to be a guide somewhere on this site to help you set it up, if you have problems.

Some how that motherboard shipped from California to Philadelphia in less than one day... Guess I'm lucky? It's already close to where I live... That was incredibly fast, I must've ordered at the perfect time. I'm guessing my motherboard got here by airplane and not by a truck.

You probobly won't have the IO sheild and cables, but I love that board and my northbridge doesnt like to overclock, but ASUS RMA is the best.

Please read the following thread and let me know if you still think that biostar 790x wins hands down.
