View Full Version : good overclocker

I head that the EVGA 680i boards are eally great overclockers, but I was wondering if there were any others out there that had 2 IDE ports.

I love the EVGA boards, but they only have 1 IDE and I have a couple of old harddrives that I want to use and need more than 1.

I was looking at the MSI P6N SLI Platinum 650i, but I heard it wasn't great for OCing. Any suggestions? Thanks.

You can get PATA to SATA convertors..as they fairly cheap. I am using them to use my old PATA drives with SATA controller on my new bearlake mobo.

You can also get pci slot ide,
Thats if they still do pci slots these days :)

Yeah, don't miss out on this board for that reason. Get a few converters or an IDE controller card and you're fine.

Plus SATA hardrives are pretty cheap.and you could run them in a Raid-0 makeing it load things faster.
