Asus A7V8X (still going strong)
EVGA 680i and 780i, even though I had to RMA the 680i a billion times.
I rocked a XFX 680I SLI board for a while, It was OK but OCed for shit.
i had 3 evga 680i's at one point in time... all running q6600's with tri-sli 8800gtx's
I have a Evga 680i laying around somewhere and it was the worst board I ever owned.
Back on the topic of awesome boards, My A8N-sli Deluxe ran my Opty165 @ 2.8 for 6 years before being retired for one of the e8400/p45's.
Cant believe that cheesy asus fan never blew up.
Mine got my Pentium D 805 and my Core 2 Duo e7200 each to 4ghz. That was on the 680i and 780i respectively I think. The 780i was basically the same thing, just with PCI-E 2.0
Anyways, the 680i was my first board and I learned to OC on it, so it'll always be remembered fondly, even if it was a buggy bastard at times.
MSI Neo4 Platnium (Socket 939). It had a rough start (would kill the battery in a matter of a week) but once they got that problem ironed out, it has been running flawlessly for 6.5 years now.
like many people i liked the white sapphires
ASRock 4CoreDual-SATA2 R2.0
Has worked flawlessly since day 1, with almost every combo of hardware possible, and when I thought there was nothing else I could do with it - BAM! - modded BIOS that added support for 4GB DDRII, better PWM signal for the cooler and total R0 45nm CPU support (for some reason, Wolfdale pentiums and the E7600 weren't supported :\ ).
It had full speed AGP and PCI-E ports, which saved me having to buy a new video card and mobo/chip all at the same time.
I think you could also add a board with an AM2 socket and DDRII slots
ULI's Chipset designs were all pretty awesome, shame Nvidia bought them, especially as they pulled out of the motherboard chipset business soon after.
ASUS P5E X38.
Bought it and later found out you can BIOS mod it to Rampage X48. Damn good board, absolutely nothing wrong with it.
EVGA X58 Classified E760.
Do I even need to start? Only bad thing was the price. Also the best looking board I have had.
I can't decide which one, both were equally impressive in their price buckets.
Well to post again my fav's all have been the ones I've kept:
DFI Lan Party - 'nuf said
Asus P5K series - unusually stable, decent overclocks, great FSB.
Foxconn Mars - Active NB cooling fan, rock solid stability - still powers my golden e8500 @ 4.5ghz.
Asus P8P67 - UEFI, great overclocker, CPU Voltage offset - you can idle at stock and ramp up to whatever you need for your overclock.
Got a MIVE matx I haven't played around with yet though...
We can make that happen :3 I have a NF7-S that's just sitting around. I got the proc to 3.9 ghz once!
Oh and as requested, pic. Beats the hell out of P5E in looks, so I pick the Classified.
dont get me started with the classified pics... i'll pull out some of my SR2 pics
SOYO P4S Dragon Ultra and SOYO P4I Fire Dragon These both had all the features you could ever want. I owned both, but they were stolen. I still have some bits and pieces of the accessories. There were many other boards too over time.
link to a review of them both
Daym, you win!
I think you buying those went something like this
"Hmm I can get a new car, or two Sr2s... Sr2s it is!"
well i had 9 at one time... but i didnt want to brag about it
O_O Why would anyone ever need 9 of those beasts?
Pr0n torrents (seeder/source!)
No kidding, nice rigs! Not just heavyweight machines, but nicely set up too!
That's what T1 and 20TBs are for :3
