    These are in B-Grade, need a cheap thing to replace the gigabyte PoS in my bros PC. It will be with a 2.53Ghz Norty + a XP-120 + 1Gb TCCD, going for 200x19 :eek: 3.8Ghz lol

    So, do either of these clock well?

    **B Grade** Asus P4P800-E Deluxe "Springdale" (Socket 478) Motherboard (BG-042-AS)

    **B Grade** Asus P4C800-E Deluxe "Canterwood" (Socket 478) Motherboard (BG-039-AS)

    Will they allow me to get 200FSB with 1.6V CPU/3V mem?

    Cheers Conc

    I believe that the canterwood is the newer chipset, i have it in my Abit IC7-G and it's great at overclocking. I can get 3.5Ghz out of my 2.8 northwood with 1.6v easily but it's all dependent on how good the chip is mate.
