i've been looking around for the first "beta-testors" that have been overclocking useing the asus p5n-e-sli with the 650i nvidia chipset .
they have a few over at XS and are overclocking them with various core2 cpu's . other than a few quirks like the dreaded v-droop . the asus don't...
with all the talk on the fourm about brand new mb's behaving badly . i thought i would see how many old mb's from the early to mid 90's are still working.
i have an old intel with a 486 dx 33mhz that still works it's a dual cpu server with of all things a sis chipset . it was made in 1989 ...
nice intel e-6300 for $167 shipped over at club it . not as good as the buy a 6400 for $169 get a free ecs like frys . but pretty good considering most places want $180+ and shipping . might pick it up with that cheap wd-80jd harddrive deal . :cool:

were reviewed overclocked --the asus did 443fsb stock v-core with a 6300.
the MSI did 400fsb with the multi turned down to 6 ? default v-core .
the the foxconn did 434fsb default v-core. with the same 6300.
i considering a couple of MB for my next core 2 build . i do need to get a decent OC out of it.
i am considering the gigabyte DS-3 ,asus p5b, the DFI infinity 975x the MSI 975x and i have been seeing a few good deals on intel d975xbxlkr's . now overclocking and intel don't normaly go...
my ebay 144 opty seems to be a very good overclocker . on my a8n-sli deluxe rev-1 it's running 3.0 on air with just a slight bump in v-core--well the truth is i forgot to change it from where it was with the a-64 i had in there --so i started off @ 1.56v-core --but on this asus i think 1.56 is...
new bios out-- i flashed this bios to my ECS a754 1.0 nf4 mb-- it retains most of the previous bios but it adds support for cpu-FSB up to 400mhz !

i have a AOC 19inch CRT monitor model 9glr
