Has anyone overclocked a 780G board yet?

The 780G seems to be available on micro-ATX, not typically known for overclocking. Has anyone here overclocked a board with this chipset on it yet, in particular using a discrete GPU? How did it go?

I know in the review Tom did a while back they were able to easily overclock the IGU from 500Mhz to 900Mhz rock solid and stable with a pretty significant performance gain. As far as overclocking CPU's, dunno about that one.

i really are impress with this board as well as i dont like amd processor.its got a powerful IGPU of any chipset on the market but also support all the display output of dvi vga hdmi anything you can imagine.

but the new nvidia IGPU is about to come out as well.so i recomand just wait for a while see what nvidia can come up with.
 
The nVidia 8200/8300 looks like a good match for this chipset, but I think they were too lazy to do a die shrink and are having some heat issues and driver issues. Still, it looks like it should be a good fight. Hopefully they'll get their's out very soon. I guess Intel should be mentioned, but their onboard had always been a joke and I imagine it may be again. We'll see.

im leaning towards Nvidia anyway since their dedicated graphics is way better then AMD.But the result will speak for themselve!i will wait and see what comes up.Intel may surprise us at the end!who knows!lol
 
Well, Anandtech's initial findings put the 780G and 8200 as about tied. Supposedly NVidia is writing a better driver for the 8200, so they may win in the end. At any rate it looks like it will be a good fight (which is always good for us :bounce: )
 
Yep, the 780G is definitely the best by far right now and AMD is enjoying it (the first crown retaken outright by AMD/ATI). I heard rumors of the 8300, but they were mostly just talking about it overheating :lol:
 
I've heard a lot of different things about it. First, it reads really hot, but if it really is isn't certain. I mean, the thing is supposed to pull less than a watt at idle yet it reports temps nearing 80C?!? That just doesn't seem right.

Anyway, in a month or so I'll be building my 780G system and might try OCing it a little if you're still interested :D

yeah i will be very interested to see.as i wanted to build a media pc.but play game with the IGPU is always a bonus!

so when will you actually build it?what CPU will you drop in there?
