Default Which mobo for oc

Hi,

I'm kinda tired of my asus mobo which does only 200Mhz fsb.
So I'm gonna order a new mobo from Jes-Computer.

It has to be one from this list.

I'm not sure yet, I'm doubting
I'm thinking of the NF7-s, AN7-S or the epox8rda3+.

My goal is: to reach an as high as possible stable fsb. I know the nf7-s is great but is the AN7 better? I read possitive and negative reviews about it. I heard epox is good but I never had one.
Anyone has got a clue?

Well, let me put my 2 cents in;

Electronic parts are "funny" business; your system is only as good as the weakest part. The combinations and variables are many.

100% to specs:

Mobo + CPU + Memory + PSU + Vcard = Excellent system for Ocing.

Anyone falls short or way short; say 90% but still within the low end tolorance would affect the end result.

MOBO specs include;
MOSFET (good voltage delivery); NB/SB stabilities.

Similarly; best performance = highest SUSTAINABLE / DELIVERABLE ouput.

One of my NF7 would deliver right-on in vcore; another one falls short by 0.05 volt.

In short; you choose the one with good to very good users comment + below average market pricing and hope for the best.

but they seem to perform worse @ same speed.
Some say the AN7 is better, some say the NF7 is better and other say the 8RDA3+ is better. Tough chooise he .
Here they compare the AN7 to the NF7s .

Close call, but the an7 can give 3.2v to the mem.
I'm wondering if my mem would survive this, it's no bh5, it's twinmos with 50B chips (223fsb on agressive timings with 2.9V)
