  1. Hi everyone,

    I have some money, but not too much, and I want a new mobo. I saw in Newegg these:

    Which is the best motherboard for overclocking my celeron d CPU? I want to take it at least to 3.06 GHZ.
    I need the AGP and PCI locking feature, so I can overclock only the CPU. I do not care about overclocking the memory, only the FSB.
    Any help would be apreciated.

    Hello! Welcome to TechSpot!

    What MoBo do you currently have?
    Between the 2, this one: MSI 865PE NEO2-V
    At that price you may find something much better like\
    an abit IC7-g or an asus P4P800-vm.

    Welcome! Abit is a great motherboard to overclock, I have the IS7-G which is an awesome board, although I'm not brave enough (or rich enough for that matter) to experiment. I have read some interesting articles on their website about people who have, and got quite a performance boost.
    Let us know what you decide and how you do. :wave:

    :mad: Thanks for your replies.
    Currently, I have a MSI 661FM2 mobo, and it doesn´t allow me to overclock. I would like to buy the mobo from Newegg. So if you see a better socket478 mobo in there, please tell me. I just want to overclock my CPU without troubles.
    Some time ago, i choosed an ABIT IS7-E2 mobo from Newegg, but they no longer have it :mad:
    That´s why i´m looking for another one.
