    Ok, so I need to get a new AM2 MotherBoard and I want one that is great at overclocking and has tons of BIOS options for it.

    I have no Idea what to get and was hoping maybe someone can recommend one to me.

    These are the current ones I have in mind.

    Not to sure on how good they are and I am not very experinced on MotherBoard Shoping so again any advice and guidness toward a good Overclocking MotherBoard would be fantastic.

    Thanks again TPU for listening up.

    Please Ignore the 6400+, I just want to know whats a good overclocking Motherboard that has lots of features in the BIOS for Ram Tweaking, Voltage Increases over the recomended amount for the CPU, ect...:)

    The M2N series are also good but up to a point. They have limited options on the cpu core voltage

    PS: Ask an owner because I am not sure about this

    Get an 790 board of some kind. Even the lower end ones you should think about.

    i have a m2n-e its good for ocing but voltage goes to 1.55 i think its a great board but you should consider an am2+ board those are real good at ocing

    You know, I was just thinking that in my mind as well! I wonder if DFI released a 790FX based motherboard?!

    I have that board.

    OK now with the 1.1 update the board is a lot better. I have to RMA mine because the first PCI-E slot doesnt work. But I'm the only one I have seen with this problem/

    AMD overdrive now shows temps with the new .14 that you can download here at the TPU.


    Oh and they are wrong to all that say this. I can use all of my SATA connects.
    MSI soft does not work at all, live update does BUT you have to use the live update bios no pointing and clicking to update. If you want a beta bios you have to dos it. Now the next update looks good. I had a bad checksom with the first beta of it, but I liked the looks of it.

    Did I for get to say that you can push DDR2 to 3v?

    LOL just remember to keep a high V-core on your CPU before you cank up the DDR2 voltage 2.3 and up so you don't toast your memory/or CPU memory controler.

    Can you tell me how good the Bios Options are and how high of a voltage you can get the CPU CORE too as well as RAM Tweaking Setting on that board?
