    Does anyone know of a Micro ATX board for P4's that will let you OC? was think about swapping the mobo out of my old HP and OC'ing the 1.8gig p4 that came with it. I looked at an abit board on newegg that cost 70.00, but it got bad reviews for no OC features. So if anyone knows of a micro ATX board that can OC lemme know. thx:)

    If your serious about oc then do yourself a favour and invest in a real case with sufficient cooling as that HP case of yours won't cut it, same story with the psu.

    Having said that, a standard ATX motherboard is what you should look into. I'm not trying to be an ass here but consider this or ya most likely won't achieve your goals.. : peace2:

    Hehe, maybe you didnt read my signature, the HP is sitting on the floor next to my desk collecting dust:p I used the HDD and the dvd burner from it to build my Athlon Rig. other than that it make a decent second box for surfing while i'm playing DAoC on this pc:)

    Dont wry, you didnt offend me, I know now that HP's are worthless. but if I got a micro atx board that OC'd, would be a nice second rig for cheap.

    Most mATX mobo's are meant for office PC's and thus most (but not all) won't be overclocker friendly.

    There are a few but they're usually hard to find but is that 1.8 of your's a socket 423 or 478 CPU?
    If the former then ya out of luck but there are a couple for the later. I've got a Gigabyte (SiS based)GA-8SIMLH though that has onboard graphics but my 1.7 Celeron is runnin' at 2.21GHz but they also have the GA-8IG1000MF (i865G) and this one looks very promisin' the GA-8IPE1000MK (i865PE based). Findin' someone who stocks these sorts of boards will be the hardest part but other brands also likely have a few as well but then ya just goin' to have to search them out.
