    Asus P5B-VM Question

    Am I right in assuming that this m/b with the Ig 965 chipset and x3000 gru will not overclock very well ??

    I have one.

    Online forums suggest that it is a reasonable overclocker.

    Personally I have been forced to underclock it thanks to choosing the worlds worst CPU cooler when I built it last week.

    When the replacement CPU cooler (a stock intel one no less) arrives from scan on Monday, I should be able to run it at stock speeds again. (I am not fitting anything more exotic, as it is in a SFF case)

    Thanks for prompt reply,

    Yes I quite fancied having a look at the x3000 gru -first came across it on the intel DG965OT which uses the ig965 chipset with x3000 on-board graphics but was told that boards with the ig965 would not overclock but the p 965 would. I only found out about this brd yesterday and had seen a couple of good reports about it. Not looking for a massive overclock just interested in learning how to do it. Remember to post your results.

    The Intel motherboard won't be overclockable as Intel boards never are.

    Bear in mind that the Asus Commando board that people are raving about in this hexus forum thread uses the same chipset, is also made by asus and will have a similar bios. Some people think 4GHz should be possible with appropriate cooling.

    Are you not aware of the Badaxe(s)?

    Agreed in principle though - Intel boards are generally made for OEMs such as Dell, and as such don't usually feature an awful lot of options in the BIOS, let alone tweaking possibilities.
