775 mobo recommendation.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys.

my Brother has just killed his PC by not installing the standoffs so he is looking for a cheap LGA775 mobo.

his old one was a ASUS P5N 32-E SLI Plus. he has never been in to overclocking but a reasonable overclocker would be nice and for as cheap as possible (less than £50)

anyway, dont buy in any of those places, u will pay a lot of mone for old tech, look on here there are boards going all the time. Id looke for a p5ne sli the little brother to his old board just cops i had one and they were awesome

if you must buy new you dont have much choice but to grab whatever one is in your budget mate.

No he shorted the board against his mobo tray, he has since took it out of the case and it seems to work ok, even though when it shorted it produced smoke from around his SATA connectors

I'll have a look around our market place for some good deals, very limited for UK buyers though.

yeah it is limited but in the last week three 775 boards have gone under 30 quid and one p5ne sli with a 6570 for like 78 quid so they do crop up.

and i have never shorted a board before from that i assume u mean he didnt use the little fibre spacers rather than not using the posts or did he not use the posts and push the board to the case? ill have to look out for this in future...
