Need help with i850E chipset

I wanted to know if you guys can help me out with purchasing a new i850E chipset board. I have a 1.6A and I plan to overclock and I dont know what motherboard is good for overclocking. I thought the Asus or IWill would be good for overclocking but they only could go up to 156FSB.

  1. Well, call Gigabyte and ask them what the max bus speed of the GA-8IHXP...nah, forget it, I just found a REAL review, says 156MHz, <A HREF="http://www.piopioshardware.bizland.com/gigabyte/MB/8ihxp/8ihxppage3.htm" target="_new">http://www.piopioshardware.bizland.com/gigabyte/MB/8ihxp/8ihxppage3.htm</A>

  2. Even so....how much higher than 2.8 GHz can you go with a 1.6A? 156FSB seems high enough!?!?
  3. 156 gets a 1.6A to 2496. Better yet, it's probably a fraction higher than 156, so probably 2500MHz. But I'd pick a 1.8A to begin with.
