    whats the best OCing s754 PCIe board/chipset

    been trying for ages to find reviews and good information on the limited boards available, just nothing about.

    I know its kind of old generation stuff now, and good arguements to dump s754 to go for 939 & PCI-e , but I have my reasons to want to stay s754

    Anyway anyone got any recomendations of information/links I have missed ?

    DFI Lanparty boards always seem to be one of the top boards out there, might want to check up reviews on that.

    Have a look at the Abit NV8. The Custom PC team had trouble overclocking in the BIOS but they apparently got the FSB up to a rather nice 285MHz using ClockGen.

    I think the normal DFI Boards though are totally different than their Lan Party series, as in a whole different league. Surely you could try and sell your socket 754 processor or something in trade for a good mobo/processor set?

    That infinity 4x is the same thing as the 939 dfi infinity, but with a different socket and one less dimm slot. Should perfrom similarly.

    I have a S939 DFI NF4-DAGF (identical to infinity in every single way), and it OCs quite well.

    very hmmmmmm, that does indeed look good.............

    now all i need is £400 to be given to me....... keep the 3400 (as its as quick as modern 939 offerings), get a 7800GTX and this mobo.



    sadly this will never happen

    I want to keep a good solid s754 base for other reasons.
    I'm a fan of Mobile CPU's and as soon as I can find good prices on the A64 ML32 etc thats the direction I'm heading.

    My last rig was a dothan @ 2.8Ghz , but with pure lack of PCI-e support and absolute crazy idea to mount my machII I have switched plan to the AMD equiv.


    I am deffinitely a fan of DFI, but they are slow output (smallish 3nd teir company?) means things drag like mad.

    What about Epox, never had any experience of them since the Thunderbird days.

    All versions of the NF4 infinity boards use very similar BIOSes (they all have the same physical chipset and the latest bios for all the boards files have the same dates), though only the non SLI S939 ones are really identical.

    Still, this means that even the S754 board should support up to at least E6 revision chips. The turions are E3 revision, just like the newest semprons, and current venice and sandiego chips.

    I would put money on the NF4X Infinity supporting mobiles and turions.

    Anyway, if you have a dothan that can do 2.8Ghz why not just keep that chip and get a newer S479 board that supports PCI-E?
