Hi All,

I have a Q9650 processor which I would like to overclock to use it for playing compatible games and image/video editing.

The available motherboards around are Gigabyte GA-EG41MT-ES2L, Gigabyte GA-G41MT-S2P and Asus P5G41T-M LX.

Kindly provide the differences and help in choosing amongst the three G41 chipset motherboards as to which is better for overclocking and overall performance.

Thanks & Regards :)
 
Of the three you listed, I would go with the GA-G41MT-S2P. Higher phase count - geared more for OCing.

Note that I would never put money into buying tech this old. You probably won't get any kind of warranty and parts will most likely be used.

Thanks for the suggestion. This isn't my main PC , it is old tech and the refurbished mobo doesn't cost much after all. I'll be upgrading to more up-to-date tech, just awaiting the prices of components to go down somewhat.
