    Re: Hi everyone!

    Hi there, looks like you are trying to put together a nice PC.
    Sorry to be abrupt, but is this a question? Do you want feedback? Suggestions? Or is it just a general welcome post?
    Anyway, hi!

    Welcome to HEXUS

    As lego batman just said, you've not really asked any questions, so we've got no real idea where you're trying to go with this thread.

    Re: Hi everyone!

    Tell ya what, you put up a completely spec and we'll tell you if there is anything wrong with it. Alternatively, give us a budget, two of three paragraphs on intended usage, and about 20 minutes and we'll throw you together what we think you want.

    Re: Hi everyone!

    Hi guys,

    This was intended to be a welcome!
    Peterb thought it would be best to put the post in this section.

    One thing i'm having trouble with is choosing a motherboard for overclocking the i7, any suggestions?
    My budget is around £200.

    I hope that's just for the motherboard... Let's see.

    There are a few I recommend. Let's start with the one I use, the Gigabyte UD5. Good solid board, overclocks well, a little more Vdroop than compitors, and no 12V rail sensors. But it makes up this with a very easy to use BIOS. And for only £191.10 inv VAT.

    Next is the Asus P6T Deluxe V2. Very solid board again, little to no Vdroop, overclocks well, has a complete sensor suite, but the BIOS can be a little confusing at times, but not to hard if you have a decent background with Overclocking. However it only has 6 SATA ports and costs £204.10 inc VAT.

    Finally there is the EVGA X58 SLi LE. I like this board for one main reason, it looks cool! Apart from that, well made, excellent Warranty, decent BIOS, etc. But again, only 6 SATA ports. Very well balanced board. And it's only £187.65 inc VAT.

    One important note, for the UD5, the Foxconn sockets are not very well made and tend to cause problems with booting and system stability. Foxconn have also managed to stuff up their P55 sockets as well. So be mindful, and check your sockets. Easiest way it to mount the CPU, then dismount it and check that every pad has a dot in the middle of it, which means a pin has made contact with it.

    I would personally consider the above advice standard practice for computer construction, especially if one intends to overclock.
