Default 754 --> 939 Upgraders Beware!

I'm sure you guys know of the Giga-Byte GA-K8NF-9 motherboard based on the nForce 4x chipset. This is not a very good overclocker. It is based on a "vanilla" chipset. Secondly, it locks the HTT multiplier at 4x instead of 5x for all 939 processors. This doesn't not look like a very good board. If you need a cheap PCIe + 939 board, then I would suggest a Chaintech Zenith VNF4/Ultra VE. It comes at $129.99 and it has very good features. Not to mention it is a very good overclocker. My friend got an AMD Athlon 64 3000+ (Winchester) along with this board which he has overclocked to 2.4 GHz so far. He will try more, but he wants liquid cooling first.
