Why would you plan on getting a motherboard you knew had no ability to adjust vcore when you want to overclock...?
Excellent question. Because I am trying to build my C2D computer at the lowest possible price. The board I am planning on getting is $75.99 (ASUS P5L-MX
). The closest board I have seen that has everything I want and has Vcore adjustments (and has fairly good reviews) is around $120. If any one else has any recommendations of a motherboard that has onboard video (again to keep the price down; This way I don't have
to buy a video card, although I may upgrade later if I feel I need it), at least one pci express slot, dual channel memory capability, and of course will run an E4300, and has been shown to reach ~320 FSB, for under $100, please let me know
. I am not looking for an amazing overclock...my original plan (before I heard about the E4300) was to get an E6300 and overclock to ~333 FSB, which I would have been perfectly happy with. Now with the E4300, if I can just get up to 300 FSB, it will be a 50% overclock, 2.7 GHz.
Hence, why I want to know how high people can get the E4300 before having to raise the Vcore...if many people make it to 300 FSB with no Vcore adjustments, then perfect. If not, then I may just have to consider upgrading my mobo...but I would rather not since the one I'm planning has a really attractive price, and everything other than the nonexistant Vcore adustment is perfect.
