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. m 0 l Related resources AM3 Non nvidia 750/970 chipset SLI - Forum NVIDIA chipset, AM3, SLI, DDR3 & SATA 6GBs - Forum AM2+ or AM3 mobo with nvidia chipset - Forum Best AMD 970 am3+ chipset board for under $90 - Forum Will any amd fx cpu work with any am3+ Motherboard regardless of chipset - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Is it a good gaming motherboard. it only does x8 in both single and mutli graphics. m 0 l 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. m 0 l tecmo34 a b Ĉ ASUS a c 235 V Motherboard December 8, 2010 11:07:07 PM It will overclock nicely... The board is a decent overclocker. m 0 l 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. m 0 l 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. m 0 l tecmo34 a b Ĉ ASUS a c 235 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 m 0 l 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. m 0 l 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. m 0 l 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. m 0 l 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. m 0 l 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. m 0 l tecmo34 a b Ĉ ASUS a c 235 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 m 0 l irfan88 December 10, 2010 12:00:40 AM you told me (2x4). Do you mean 4 2gb sticks or 2 4gb sticks. m 0 l 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... m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
