AMD 1055t Budget motherboard OC

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Just like to say hi i am new to the forum and overclocking.


I have a dilema. I just bought a new 1055t 125w and 4GB of ripsaw 1600mhz ram.

I have £50 left for a motherboard.

This is where i need some adivce

I have no need for onboard gfx or crossfire.

USB3 would be nice but not needed.

The whole reason i decided to buy these bits is to overclock, i want to get the magic 4ghz, or as close too, it will take me a while becuase i am new but, i still want a mobo with the potentional.

i have been given to recommendations..

ASRock 890GM Pro3
ASRock 880GM-LE
MSI 880GM-E41
MSI 870-C45

I have no idea which is best for OCing the 6core chip, let alone if theres better out there.


Thanks inadvance and expect to see alot more of me

The latter 3 would be very unsafe & unacceptable for x6 125W
Actually the first one wouldn't be a good idea either

They all have very unsafe and not safely 125W ready VRMs and no OCP

the first board is 4+1 phase but has no vrm heatsink so i would not get it + i have heard asrock boards are bad for voltage hopping not my opinion just what i have heard.
number two also appears to be 4+1 phase with no vrm cooler so id pass on it also.
not sure but i think the 3rd is on 4+1 phase to With no vrm cooling as with the fourth one.
so i would not use any of them boards with anything more then a 95w quad tbh.

trust me you dont want to skimp out on a board
paying a little more money is worth it Same goes for the psu.

Thanks for the advise, could you recommend a budget board?

ASrock 880g extreme3 or ASRock M3A770DE any good?

Cheers

None of them in the first post have decent enough VRM quality... 2nd & 3rd board are 3+1 phase, 4th is known for failures, 1st is unheatsinked and of visibly cheap design

Neither does the M3A770DE. The AsRock 880G Extreme3 though, that's ideal.

Thanks for the reply mate,

I Just visited the local PC shop, they are fairly good price wise

They offered me boards at my price range.

Asus M4A79XTD Evo
Gigabyte GA-880GM-UD2H
Asus M4A78LT-M
ASUS M4A77TD PRO

If these are no good, the AsRock 880G Extreme3 it is. Although i am hoping the EVO is good enough its clearance stock and a very good price.

Cheers for the help

Those boards are looking way better actually; the M4A79XTD EVO has 8x-8x CrossfireX and is usually found at decent prices. The latter two are 4+1, one being a not-very-good-quality design (the Gigabyte); the latter is also an 8+2 and the features about match the AsRock 880G Extreme3 (excluding the IGP, but you might not need that anyway and this board might be cheaper)

8+2 is usually most ideal for x6 and overclocking due to high TDP and higher VRM load the x6 puts
