So the best boards to get if you want to OC is the DFI I assume. I mean I want to get a opty and I do want to OC later in the future, but i dont plan OCing it really high. Around 10 to 15 percent to be on the safe side. :twisted:Wusy will reply soon. That's his sig you are talking about. There are three reasons for it.
1 The Asus nforce4 boards have been problematic, esp the voltage regulators.
2 The boards just dont OC well, again due to crappy voltage regulation.
3 The product is priced way beyond it's value, esp when you have to deal with overworked support staff.
When I was on newegg they were a lot of complaints about abit boards. I want to get a opty 175 so i'm a little worried that I will run into problems. What abit board do you recommend for the Opty 175? I need sata2, pic express for my vid card, ata/100 for my older hd and decent ocing capabilities? Links would be good. :twisted: thanks dog.My list of Ocing boards always starts with Abit boards. They may not get the extreme OCs that DFI does, but they are easier to use (gotta love uguru) and seem to be better designed (I really hate that dfi didn't go with ISA on the ram slots. It makes no sense to cause more pain for the ODMC)
Epox is a real up and comer as well.
Also i read that this is wrong, can't reconize the dual core, or this and that or it needs a patch for something. I mean I was like damn I guess I better stay away from abit. I'm going to look into that board.I think the KN8 ultra [/b] is a great board. The early version had a few bugs, but they seem to be fixed.
I dont understand how anyone could screw up an install on one of these boards, but, when some fool does, they always blame the product.
As per all Amd boards check for ram compatability, and when OCing, use the uguru prog, in windows.
I have to agree. Check out the sig.I think the KN8 ultra is a great board
That's been my experience. Asus's top-end products are awesome. (Though some argue overpriced, I consider them worth their price.) But their low-end products have been known to suffer from a lot of quality control issues, and, well, for a looooong time AMD processors pretty much were considered only for 'cheap' low-end systems by a lot of manufacturers. Sure, today that's changed, but it wasn't always so.I dont know, maybe a lot of people had bad experiences with cheap ASUS boards, the high end ones seem to be very appreciated.
First I'm not looking to spending now 200 for a mobo. It's just out of my price range. I just want a decent one that can OC decent, but have some nice features as well. It must have sata2, pci e and what not. And stable of course. :twisted:I'm generally agreeing with you guys. I love my a8n-sli premium, and considering it's >$50 more than other 'good' mobos, and think $50 is worth the, uh, pleasure, of knowing you have a great mobo in your rig and that you're probably getting a bit more than $50 extra outta your system. Never go cheap on PSUs, but never go cheap on mobos either!
