Swapping to a new Motherboard - Do I need to redo everything?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I've got a solid OC going here, but now I've noticed that my SATA controller on my MoBo is acting weird so I need to RMA / Replace.

If I get a smiliar motherboard ( same series ) do I need to find new settings to use for OC? Or will I be able to use the same settings I've had before?

If I get a completely different brand and model, can I use the same voltages and stuff I've been running now?

Yes, different boards will OC differently. It shouldn't be too much of a difference but you'll have to redo it anyways as the BIOS can be different.

If you get the same exact motherboard, you don't have to do anything. But if it is something like mine (UD3R to UD3P) then again you don't have to do anything. OC settings don't transfer from board to board they are saved within the bios.

If you get a completely different brand the you most likely need to redo your overclock (and your OS as your drivers will be different) as every board and board manufacture is different.

Yeah I know that they're stored in BIOS, what I mean is:

Do I need to go back to square 1 where I have to do small increments to find a suitable OC and then run prime / ibt for days again?

Yeah, sorry, u have to do that lmao, jk.

Seriously, you must have nothing else to do if u go back to square one on every mobo u get.

U keep the settings/write it down, and use them on the new board. If it fails, then u can tweak the settings. if not, then celebrate?

Same exact board (such as an RMA) then no, all settings should be fine.

Different board then yes, you'll likely have to redo the settings to find your stable OC.

The settings *should* be close but you never know.

I would think that just as there are varying overclocking abilities from CPU to CPU of the same model, as well as GPU's, the same thing would be true of motherboards.

I will most likely re-install the OS and run some tests to be sure of the settings.

By the way, any suggestions on what Motherboard I should use instead of my X58A-GD65?

Here's a list of the ones that I can choose from:

http://www.inet.se/kategori/334/socket-1366

I've got three "demands":

* SATA-3
* USB 3
* Coaxial output


Suggestions?
