back on the topic....
surprised to not see more gigabyte boards in here
Is your employer accepting resume's
i run my own business.
i built SR2 machines for NOAA to run weather prediction scenarios.
i also built and sold SR2 machines to run OSX for mac people looking to have the fastest mac on the planet.
my personal machine was built to run crysis maxed out though
I'm enjoying my Crosshair V.
Hands down the ABIT AB9 pro. Clocked all by 775 chips to great lengths, never had any hiccups.
Of all time.... Hmm I would say the 3 ASUS Rampage II Gene's I had. All were rock solid!! Next would have to be my Evga Classified E759. I remember I found a guy on OCN who straight traded me for one of my Rampage II Gene's! It was legit. Sexy board. As far as older boards.....I am not sure. I really liked my ASUS P6T Vanilla. All the MSI boards I've had have been solid, just not the best overclockers.
ASUS Rampage II Gene
eVGA Classified E759
MSI K9A2 Platinum
Gigabyte 965P-DQ6 !!!!!
I'll remember some others soon haha. I've had way to many builds.
i also had that board
GA-EP45-UD3R with q9550 BEST EVER! nuf said
Abit-BP6... Dual socket 370 w/ 366mhz celerons overclocked to 550...
Asus P4P800 SE
Legendary Abit BE6-II
Actually mine, die hard motherboard ! The first Rampage Extreme x48
Sometimes a bit unstable when overclocking RAM.
Asus Pinot Noire, working sample but never been produced
Striker 2 extreme nvidia 790i by asus
Asus MemPipe, same end of the Pinot Noire
asus has the eyecandy with performance and features to match
ASUS A8N-SLI Premium!
Can't forget the ASUS A8R32-MVP Deluxe either.
Damn man, really makes me want to go back in time. Unboxing those were amazing!
Indeed, especially in the S775 era. Now the ROG series are equally good.
My current board isn't to shabby Z68 platform for $100. Comes with 2 SATA 3 and 2 USB3 and supports K series procs too
PS. It also has mounting holes for S775 too, so HSF options are plenty
man... one time i had this asus maximus gene... the original one. was a matx board and i dont think it was ever even released.
wish i could find another one
I remember that! I was trying to track it down for a while lol. It wasn't released in the US.
Gigabyte really picked up with their LGA775 boards afaik. Before that they were kinda meh.
Here was my all time favorite S478 board. Even though the bios had no OCing features, this board got my Pentium 4 3.0Ghz with HT to 4Ghz on STOCK VOLTAGE stable! I was very surprised at this considering I was using SetFSB at the time. I ran it with 2GB DDR-400 and 6800 Ultra for a while couple years ago even had it under water.
And my water loop!
I don't have pictures at the moment, but
DFI LanParty UT NF4-D Ultra - Only one working DIMM, PCIe doesn't work, SATA doesn't work, Ethernet doesn't work, USB works when it feels like it... Basically one DIMM slot, all PCI slots and an IDE channel work. Reason I like it? It clocked 939 chips about 100 MHz higher than any other board I've owned (including several other NF4-D Ultras). It spent close to 5,000 hours subzero under phase-change cooling and about twelve hours subzero without insulation because I was lazy This board has done 420 MHz HT speed
DFI LanParty UT CFX3200-DR - This board has done 290 MHz 2-2-2-5 dual channel with BH-5 RAM, 350 MHz 3-4-4-8 dual channel with TCCD RAM
Abit BH-6 - This board has "died" multiple times over the last.. Thirteen years I think, but keeps coming back to life. It's a hardy little bugger My first overclocking experience that didn't require DIP switches or jumpers, my first SLI experience and my first overclock greater than 50%
Abit N7F-S - the board I used for the several years with my Socket 462 overclocking adventures. My first physical Vmod with the 3.3v rail going straight to the DIMM slots. My first proper subzero experience which didn't involve a coffee can full of DICE Managed 265 MHz FSB
My old socket 939 EVGA nForce4 SLI x16 edition motherboard. Good clocker, and one of the few SLI motherboards with two full x16 PCI-E slots available.
Still soldiers on in the wife's rig. And the Opty 170 in it still does as well.
Evga w555 sr-2 im realy loving it

every thing gets puted into teh case once i got my ram and cpu
Abit KV7 , much more solid than all I had on Nvidia chipset and cpu was clocking better
Gigabyte K8NS rev 1.0 ( s754 ) , even that I had DFI , GB was clocking better and was really solid that I can't say about DFI ( 3 or 4 RMA ). 2nd revision was worse.
DFI LANParty JR P45 T2RS , one of best clocking 775 boards and micro atx, no problems at all
ASUS CHV, maybe only ASUS that I had and I never had to complain for all bugs that are in previous models ( mainly BIOS related )
I had lot of boards and I don't even remember many of them but I have good reason to remember these above ( except CHV that I still own and I think I will use it for longer ).
DFI LANParty NF4SLI-DR Expert = best socket 939 motherboard built EVER!
Don't know the model but it was a Chaintech....was also my first computer show and computer show purchase...also the last motherboard I owned that didn't require a separate GFX.
That board seen 3 processor upgrades...Intel 486 SX 66mhz >AMD 5x86 p-75>Intel Pentium pro 133mhz...LOL
