The Revision is what we are looking for. Wowza/Zipnogg has a DO stepping, which are notoriously bad for oc'ing, he just happened to get a good chip. Orange has an EO, which is a newer stepping, and they OC like no tomorrow. The EO's are VERY nice.

LOL No problemo. Yup, your stepping is the best you can get for socket 478

Heard it isnt bad.....if you have a better board for same price please....im interested haha

Great motherboard!! I would go for the Delux though, a little better because it has 4 SATA ports, so there is an SATA lock on it, so you will not have any trouble OCing past 250MHz FSB with an SATA hard drive. You will hit a wall at 250ish with an SATA hard drive on the SE, but not the Delux.

Na, that board is good for the price.. I just recommended the canterwood (875P) chipset due to the prescott processor, but this Asus board will get you far for that price.

I actually have an ATA hard drive because i originally bout an SATA but had to sell it because my motherboard doesnt want to use it really, so now im on ATA.....its a long story i would explain if needed

So will an ATA HDD hold me back?!

Nope, not at all.

If possible, I would suggest an 875 chipset board also, they do better with Prescotts than the 865 boards do, but that is still a very nice board. A suggestion if I may: I would recommend buying some little heatsinks for the PWM area (the power mosfets), as tend to run pretty hot on the 865 chipsets when using a Prescott. I would also suggest either a new northbridge heatsink that has a fan on it, or slapping a 40mm fan on top of the factory NB heatsink.

that looks pretty decent but a lot of money, and its the only 875 board they have for socket 478, maybe id surrender getting the mx518 for it....

Also, do i need to reinstall windows after swapping motherboards?

Stay away from the Tyan!!! They are server based motherboards, and do not offer any overclocking options.

The 865 boards will do just fine, just keep an eye on the PWM and NB temps. The top 2 875 boards are the Abit IC7 (and Max-3), and the Asus P4C800.

And yes, you have to reinstall Windows.

Okay thanks, and i thought i need to, so i will be getting that motherbaord, and i could prolly put a fan right over the northbridge, do the PWM and NB temps show on speedfan, or what program would show them?

Yes, Speefan should show the PWM temp, but I don't know if it will show the NB temp, as I have never actually used a P4P800 in person. Yeah, you can just buy a cheap 40mm fan and strap it right on top of the factory NB heatsink. Or superglue, or small screws, etc. etc.
