    I am going to chuck my Gigabyte K8N Pro-Sli motherboard, as I believe it to be the cause of my poor overclocking results. It's great for stability at stock though.

    Anyway, my old MSI socket 754 board was great at overclocking... is the MSI K8N Diamond nForce4 SLi 939 motherboard any good? Or can anyone advise on a better motherboard?

    Many thanks :)

    No as you can not up the voltage with there current bios.
    I was wondering why I couldnt up my voltage, thinking I must have done something wrong, as everybody on here was telling me I was able to do so with my board.
    So I looked else were, went on the Diamond club forums (private for diamond owners) and they were saying they will not allow you to up your voltage on the board as it will make your system unstable, Bad new for overclockers, "great for overclocking" my arse it is.
    I was a bit peevd when I found this out, as now im limited with my overclock due to the default voltage.
    And this is for both PN4 and KN8
    Stay clear and go for another brand.
