    Ay i am RMA'in my biostar m7ncdp and i just wanted to know what i should do, replace it, or refund it, and get the nf7-s. Is the extra 50 dollars worth it? i mean. Does it oc any better than the Biostar which is only 50 bucks AR. I heard some ppl got the NF7-S' FSB up to 230. But i can only get mine to like 200, may b i should just switch the HS on the NB? I got my 1800+ 2.3 ghz with 512 3200 geil ram sooo iono what to do... Thanks

    The abit kills it. Though if you wanna get something a little less, though still good, get Epox Ep-8RDA+

    biostar is the epitemy of oem budget mobos. I'm surpirsed you got it to OC at all. The ASUS, Abit, Epox, and a host of other quality boards are no comparision to Biostar. So, yes, it is worth the extra money. Keep the cpu and RAM though.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    It would surely be the better board as 230x10 will be a lot faster than 200x11.5 (which is what I guessed yours is at).

    Be careful as some of those companies also use BIOS gutted ASUS and MSI mobo's (they still won't overclock though) as well as one or two of the other brands.
