building a new rig, starting with the vapochill case and a 3gig pentinium 4 ,800 fsb chip,. just wondered what was the best motherboard to buy. any help would be greatly received .

I had a Abit NF&-S (nForce) running an Athlon XP1800+ ([email protected]) - fast but not reliable. I just swapped over to a Albatron PX865PE ProII (http://www.albatron.com.tw/english/it/mb/overview.asp?pro_id=51) and a P4 2.4c (800FSB). Straight from the box with the standard fan and voltage I clocked 3.0ghz (1000FSB), and it is rock steady. I ran 12 hours of HotCPU (including Prime95) and didn't miss a beat. The Albatron has all the goods (dual bios, 8 USB2, 24bit 7.1 channel sound, SATA RAID & IDE RAID, Gigabit LAN...) and the box advertises 1200FSB. When my water cooling turns up, I'll shoot for 3.6ghz...!!

Go with the Ausus P4c800 Deluxe model. I recently picked mine up from New egg (http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduct.asp?DEPA=&submit=Go&description=asus+p4c800+deluxe) Spend alittle bit more to get a loaded motherboard. I have a P4 2.8 ghz and it allowed me to overclock the sucker to about 3.4 ghz. Can you imagine what your P4 3 ghz will do. I has allot of goodies, built on Serials, sound, Gigobyte eithernet, PAT, hyperthreading and so forth.

I just ordered the New Asus P4C800-E Deluxe, it includes the Intel
ICH5/R and CSA with Gigabyte Lan which was not included in the first release. Check out link.

the best mother board for the intel chip at the moment is the MSI® 875P Neo and the reason for this is its just broke the new world proformance record in 3dmark01 and 3dmark03 and here is a link witch will light up your eyes

http://www.msicomputer.com/pressrelease/875Pneo.asp

now tell me you dont want this motherboard because I have ordered one, this is one of many good reviws on this board and breaking a new world recourd in two 3dmarks speaks for it self and the duel band memory compliments this board very well indeed. I know two guys with this board who used to be amd all the way but now tell me it was the best thing they ever did to change to this intel setup, they are very very happy with what this board dose, its about the best for your money at the moment and I have seen this board on a good price tag with my boss at work as discount for me all the way lol. hope this helps you make up your mind i posted this before but it must have got lost some were.

If you do decide to get this board make sure youy get the MSI model as thats the ones I have seen tested and my mates allso have MSI model and no complaints from them at all.

Great, but it has been beaten now though by asus P4C800, they scored 25.676 3D marks which is quite good.. :)

cool this asus must be a good board but i was thinking the price tag maybe to high unless hes not on a budget and that will be cool if he isnt but if he is the msi board is a good price now.

Allso 452 extra points dose'nt justefy the extra 50 pound you would pay for the asus but I still think the MSI board is the better deal but everyone is to the own

Both boards are great but the asus one is just that little bit better:thumb: in my opinion worth the extra £50:thumb:

to pay an extra 50 pound it has to be more than just a little better for me to pay that much extra unless its a graphics card of course lol i allways have to have the best graphics card and as long as my mobo is good then that suites me. To tell the truth I have never fancied an asus board because two of my friends have the asus A7N8X and they have had nothing but problems with this and that and the forums are full of people having problems with this mobo so maybe its just that paticular one, anyway I am thinking of getting another mobo aswell and hopfully I will get aN ABIT AS HAVE you seen there forums they are practually empty, and I know these to be pritty problem free boards now, anyway we all like our sertain things so thanks for the info on the asus anyway.

I have a P4P800 which i THINK (correct me if i'm wrong) is quite similar to the P4C800, but the C uses the 875 chipset?


But yeah, a mate of mine got a P4C800 and he loves it. ASUS make top quality mobos and they're really doing great things on the new P4 platforms.

J/w, anybody read this:

http://www20.tomshardware.com/motherboard/20030707/index.html

The MSI Neo2-FIS2R really kicked ass (it was at the top of almost every test), and at $170, its damn cheap. I wonder if the Neo2-LS version has the same performance and it's only around $105. Sounds like a damn good deal to me. : peace2: Mista K6

MSI is a ok board, but not that stable compared to a ASUS board. Getting that board you have to update bios right away because i heard that it crashes for some reason.

Because they "cheated" through dynamic overclocking of the FSB, I think around 818 or so they said. It did make the board look pretty good, but ASUS still wins. P4P800 can be had for $119 or so.

The ASUS boards are much better overclockers. All of the top 3DMark systems (25k) use the P4C800.

Well, it would help if you list the brand of your ram. Also, you did not read Soul Burner's post, 3.0 and up. While you are at 2.8. I can overclock to 2.9 stable, and that is on cheap 2100 and a intel mobo. For a non program oc, i would expect more :confused:

AsianBatman
09-02-2003, 02:36 AM
Oh..stratch 3.0 that was in other post. :o But i still would go with the ASUS!!!!!!!! 139 at newegg.com i think.

ONCE AGAIN another one from you.


Copied and pasted from another thread.
Whats his "ram name" got to do with the price of tea in China?

Maybe you should stop posting one liners and following soulburner around. It shows your age and intellect. 12-15 I would presume.

Ugh..i should stop doing that, but what i meant was what ram type, like ddr266 ddr333 or ddr400. And since your going to post that again :o Why don't you teach this 12-15 year old? Rather than just saying something like that to put him down? So, i am here to learn!

Did you use the AI or manual settings in your o'clock of the P4C800 ? If manual, what settings did you use ?
