ASUS Striker Extreme LGA775 mobo

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
Hi!


My brother recently made a slight upgrade on his CPU. From an E8500 to a Q6600.

Now, he will upgrade later this year to either Sandy Bridge or AMD's upcoming Bulldozer.

He only wanted to do this slight upgrade, so he had a little more power up untill then.

He has an ASRock 740i SLI mobo, which really doesn't cut it anymore as far as CPU OC goes. He can squeeze the Q6600 to about 3.2 Ghz., but then no further. One of his buddies can sqeeze it to about 3.4 Ghz.

Now I just looked at a used ASUS Striker Extreme LGA775 mobo, which seems to me would be the prime of the LGA775 socket.

Would you say that the ASUS would outperform the ASRock? - and no, it has nothing to do with the brand.


What say you? Go for the ASUS Striker Extreme mobo, or keep the ASRock 740i SLI?

It should be noted that my brother wishes to sell his current rig to a friend in a couple of months, so the Q6600 and the ASUS Striker Extreme are pretty good sales arguments wink.gif

Seriously? 23 people looked at this, but no one has an answer? Not even a simple guess? tongue.gif

post #4 of 35
Honestly if he is going to do a full upgrade later on there is no need to get a new motherboard.
post #5 of 35
Keep the money and use it for the upgrade. Wouldnt get much back in a few months for the Striker board i expect.

Honestly, if this is temporary, I say just stick with what you have. Any extra it nets you in selling it later will be more than lost by buying it now. It's not like it's still at a low 2.4GHz stock. If it were, then this might be different, but I say it's okay at 3.2GHz for now.

Also, no, the Striker Extreme wasn't the prime of socket 775, not by a longshot. I'm not saying it's a bad board, but the P35/P45 and X38/X48 are all above it, as are the i780 and i790, so it's quite old and down there even for LGA775.

This is coming from someone who owned a Striker II Extreme, keep the ASRock. The Striker can be a real pain in the rear. I had a Q6600 GO overclocked to 3.6 in one, it would be stable for months then start hard locking or blue screening, for a week or two. The Striker II Extreme has the 790i chip set which is good for a few tension head aches, while overclocking on it.
On a side note it also runs DDR3, I believe the ASRock your brother has is DDR2. So you would have to add that to the expense.
Going from 3.2 to 3.6 is not that big of a performance jump. That seems to be where a good percentage of Q6600 topped out, stability wise.

Thanks for all the replies.

I just talked to my brother, and he does'nt want to upgrade the whole system just yet. Maybe in a year or two. But it's VERY hard to find great and cheap SLI mobos for the LGA775 platform.

Recommend me 3-4 different mobos, please smile.gif

Hmm... He already has the latest BIOS.

Just recommend me some mobos that I can look for. He also wants to get some new GPUs.

But for now, just recommend me a couple of mobos smile.gif
