Default Recommended Motherboard for me?

hey if you've been looking through the forums today, you'll know that i got some OCZ platinum rev 2s today but my motherboard can't provide enough voltage (only 2.7 volts). I need to get a new Socket 939 motherboard that can provide the volts needed for the overclocking the RAM. Can anyone recommend a motherboard for me? Also, i'm selling my old motherboard and processor. check buy/sell forums for more info.

I would recommend this board.

Altough I haven't used it myself it's supposed to be the best for overclocking and can provide alot of volts to ur platinum rev 2s.

Yeh, that is a good board, however if you cant afford that, the Abit AV8 3rd EYE is also a nice choice

Yeah one problem fellas, he's got an AGP card so that DFI isn't going to help him any

The current best OC'ing mobo out there right now is the MSI Neo2 Platinum

I'm on my moms laptop right now, but tomorrow I'll link you to a thread at xtremesystems that has a bunch of tips for optimizing your MSI Neo2 platinum board.

Normally I'd say ABit is a fine choice for OC'ing, but the MSI takes the cake unless DFI releases their socket 939 nf3 board which MIGHT be out in june.

I checked out the DFI's website and noticed that this board uses nVidia nForce4 Ultra chipset whereas its sibling, the LanParty UT nF4 SLI-D, employs NVIDIA nForce4 SLI chipset. I wonder if you can explain to me what's difference between these two chipsets. Thanks!

Well according to Nvidia one has an extra 16 PCI-E lanes, to run 2x PCI-E graphics cards in SLI

In reality, the difference is one connection which you can connect by yourself

also, how important is the dual channel feature in performance? i really really just don't know whether to sell just my socket 754 motherboard and buy a new one or if i should sell both my motherboard and processor and buy a socket 939 motherboard and processor so i have dual channel capabilities.
