Hi, I'm looking to purchase one of the MSI Neo2 V2.0 939 NF3 GB Ultra boards in the next couple of days. I have heard that the MSi is probably the best overclocker on the 939 chipset so far. With this in mind I will plan to overclock as much as is possible but yet stable. Some people tell me to go for the 3200 XL as it has extremely low latency but if I am to overclock would I not be better with the 4000 or 4400 versions to give me more headroom when overclocking. Upon reading the article in Custom Pc Mag they achieved a stable overclock at 214 Mhz. With this in mind I'm not sure which would be best 3200 XL at slacker timings or 4000. I'm not sure what the 3200 XL is capabale of as far as overclocking goes. 1 Gb (2 x 512 Mb) Corsair TwinX-XL, DDR, PC3200XLPT, Cas 2 Or 1 Gb (2 x 512 Mb) Corsair TwinX, DDR, PC4000PT, Cas 3 Any suggestions welcome. Thanks

Thanks[/QUOTE] 214 is nothing. Go for the 3200XLPT and you should be able to do 230-235 1:1 2-2-2-10 @1T on the ASUS Rev. 2.0 or the MSI K8N Neo 2(I will have this tomorrow to compare to my A8V) with proper cooling and volts. Getting higher overclocks is more likely going to force you to drop the HTT to 800 and then continuing to increase the FSB.....up to you. Me personally, I'd rather be at 220-230 1:1 2-2-2-5(or 10)-11-16 @1T stable 24/7. :D:.......moderate O/C creating a fast system.

Lidocaine, Please post your results with the MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum. I want to buy this mobo but I don't know about the memory. I'm not a hard core overclocker, I just want a superfast gaming box (I have a Geforce 6800 Ultra). Thanks for the info.
