    Question Cheapest overclockable MB

    I'm looking for a Very Cheap overclockable motherboard with pcie16-2, lan, otherwise as long as it's skt775 the rest dosn't matter (I think)

    I bought a p5e vm hdmi to try the hdmi with a view to htpc (pretty good)

    At the moment it's folding 24/7 and doing pretty well so far @3.4Gig with a q6600 g0

    It's too good for this so I'm looking for a folding machine replacement

    Has anyone got any recommends?

    Gigabyte boards are cheap and overclock well. Check out there website there is an X38 board which is crossfire and got a great review in Custom PC. Il find it for you tomorrow and give you a link. Pretty sure it was around 115. Or the Asus P5k Premium WiFi is the board im using now, it overclocks great and its around the same price. Its A P35 chipset. There are cheaper boards out there which will overclock but not sure if they offer sufficient cooling capabilities for a 24/7 OC.

    it depends on how much reach you want the board to have for overclocking. i mean asrock boards overclock quite well and wil be cheaper than most.

    Sorry, not so clear...1x PCI-E 2.0

    @Jameson...typically.....q6600 @ around 3.4, 3.6 Ithink much more is water cooling territory but if it would go to 3.8 I could trial that too as there is no requirement to keep it looking pretty or in a case in future.

    Gigabyte P35-DS3L.

    Overclocks like a CHAMP, resets itself when overclock is unstable, decent layout, northbridge gets a bit hot but nothing too bad, extensive OC options (but you gotta hit CRTL+F1 at BIOS to unlock hidden stuff), good features, dirt cheap for what you get. Doesn't have RAID support though, that's the only drawback really.

    It's a real gem, I've hit 500FSB with an E6300 but dunno about a Q6600, should still do fine, especially since that has a 9x multi.


    If you're looking to go REALLY CHEAP then a couple of the ASRock boards are actually pretty decent.

    I can't stop loving this board. Lol. So far i had no problems with it, and it overclocks very nicely.

    Only thing tho, is that you gotta set the FSB ratio with jumpers!
    (but to some, that's a plus!)

    Phew actually I don't really remember... I think I paid around $100 (50) about 4 months ago.

    Timings are 4-4-4-12.

    They came as 800Mhz stock, but had NO problem running @ 1100 Mhz with the timings: 5-5-5-15
