flapperhead said:man thats hard to say.. alot of guys say the asus is naturally more stable out of the box. but also 50/60.00 more expensive. ive got an ic7 totally modded out and it runs 335mhz fsb right till my cpu quits..
flapperhead said:yes hipro's mods(although the vtt mod (2nd way) appears to not be right) yes prommy, even a good chip (2.4c) is only gonna get u 305/310 at the very max stable..unless u use extreme cooling..
flapperhead said:correct,tho not as good as hipro(who is?) i work in the hi tech world so i had the necesssary euipment to do it.as i said previously it appears that the 2nd vtt DOESNT work correctly there a several ways to do it - i advise hipro's first method or one of the others... all others work like a charm..
unless u want very hi fsb (which is vry hard on air past 300.) i would just have him do the vmem and vtt mods.. maybe an extra cap for cpu stability...
meionm said:Full moded asus board will out peroform abit boards, by the way asus mods are really easy, Abit board doesn't have vcore mod under load it droops almost like asus, but with asus board moded there is slight or no droop. One more thing I found asus board memory friendly for overclocking, what I mean by that I can put any memory and run it with it spec for example my memory ocz 4400 will not run 1:1 on abit board at 275 but on asus no issues
krag said:Hipro will do mods? I wasn't aware that he hired himself out? If this is true I will have him hook me up with a board.
I just meant vdimm and vcore mod only those two count in performance, and overclabitlity, what i noticed asus and abit boards pretty similar when it comes to vcore drop till it get up to 1.6, after 1.6 asus board has a huge vcore drop under load, but with vcore mod it's fixed, the agp doesn't do anything, it's only good for extreme overclocking, it better to do gpu mod, What I really liked about mods on asus board is that they are easy almost no soldering skills required,flapperhead said:when u say fully modded asus do u mean vdroop and vmem? cause as i said b4 once i got the ability to hit the vagp with 1.95v and the nb with 1.9volts/ the ic7 just took off (of course) unless u do these mods to the asus, it would be at a disadvantage cause even tho it adds extra nb voltage as u go up(very smart in my opinion) no one usualy goes past 1.65/1.7 with the cpu..
as for memeory, yes abit could do better.. i found bt disabling pat allows better memory 1-1 oc's past 300..
