I can afford an Athlon II x4. What do you think of Asus M4N75TD. Is it a good gaming motherboard. it only does x8 in both single and mutli graphics.

Is it a good gaming motherboard. it only does x8 in both single and mutli graphics. irfan88 December 8, 2010 10:58:02 PM I already purchased it yesterday. the motherboard is capable of doing sli. but I am not sure about its overclocking abilities. What do you think. Can I overclock an AM3 processor to its best with this motherboard. tecmo34 a b Ĉ ASUS a c 234 V Motherboard December 8, 2010 11:07:07 PM It will overclock nicely... The board is a decent overclocker. irfan88 December 8, 2010 11:15:46 PM But the problem is, I don't know how to overclock. I don't have any experience of overclocking. does this motherboard have any automatic overclock options. please suggest something. irfan88 December 8, 2010 11:48:58 PM can I use AMD overdrive utility to overclock. It has novice mode which allows to overclock automatically. but will AMD overdrive work with AMD cpu and an nvidia gpu. tecmo34 a b Ĉ ASUS a c 234 V Motherboard December 8, 2010 11:54:57 PM Yes... It will work but typically it is not recommended to use Windows based software to overclock... usually used for "tweaking irfan88 December 9, 2010 2:42:25 AM so can I just use an Athlon II x4 635 or Athlon II x3 435 for gaming purpose. I am on a budget. I would later on upgrade it to a thuban or a bull dozer processor when it releases. so will an Athlon II x4 635 or Athlon II x3 435 suffice for now or should I go for a Phenom II x4 itself. irfan88 December 9, 2010 12:38:19 PM so how about a Phenom II x2 555 BE or a Phenom II x3 720 BE. What do you think? The motherboard that I bought has a core unlocker switch built in on the board itself. Should I try that or just go with a Phenom II x4. irfan88 December 9, 2010 8:52:53 PM I heard that the upcoming AMD processor Bulldozer requires an AM3+ chipset. So as I have an AM3 chipset, won't a bios update on the motherboard work as it previously worked with AM2+ chips. I mean to say, will the Bulldozer processors backward compatible with the existing AM3 chipsets. irfan88 December 9, 2010 9:12:20 PM If that would be the case, then most of the people who recently bought an AM3 board would be in total loss. And there would also be a minimal chance of SLI on an AM3+ motherboard, considering the fact that there were only two motherboards (750a and 980a) on AM3 chipsets. irfan88 December 9, 2010 9:26:52 PM there's one last question that I forgot to ask. As I bought an ASUS M4N75TD that has 4 RAM slots (2000 OC). Will I be able to use all the 4 RAM slots to install 1333MHZ of memory (4GB on each slot = 16GB total). The reason I asked you this is because, I've heard most of the people were not able to use all the 4 RAM slots. tecmo34 a b Ĉ ASUS a c 234 V Motherboard December 9, 2010 11:55:03 PM I would just get 4GB (2x2GB) of RAM. There is really no reason for that much memory and those older board don't always place nice with 4GB sticks, let alone 16GB irfan88 December 10, 2010 12:00:40 AM you told me (2x4). Do you mean 4 2gb sticks or 2 4gb sticks. irfan88 December 10, 2010 3:15:41 AM but can I install 4 sticks of 2 gb each. I am looking to get this memory: CORSAIR XMS3 4GB Model TW3X4G1333C9A DDR3 1333MHZ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Can't find your answer ? Ask !
