mATX overclocker?

I'm looking for a decent overclocking microATX s939 mobo.

Any ideas?

s939 mATX is pretty limited in choice, there are few/ any "good" overclocking motherboards. It seems to be that the Radeon Xpress 200 is the only s939 microATX motherboard that is around. but there is the foxconn s939 with the nforce 4 chipset (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813186052), but i dont know whether it overclocks well.

THanks for the response.... It was getting lonely. I've looked at the Newegg selection, and at least the prices are good. In the cusomer feedback, it appears that a couple can at least raise FSB a bit.

Not looking for monster a overclock, but with a new 3000+, I need at least 240-250 FSB to make the new build worth while....

You get that venice chip and you can probably go higher than that Steve.
Good luck.

MSI have an mATX Radeon xpress 200 board but it has no overclocking options. Foxconn aren't well known for their overclocking

How come it has to be mATX? Could you not go for a shuttle?

THe toaster box is nice, but I'm looking for a bit more flexibility. I have a minor excuse to upgrade one of my machines... TBH, I'm not upgrading for a lot of performance... just to tinker around and have some fun. I really like the look of some mATX boxes, and want to see what I can do with them without sacrificing too much performance.

As soon as it is back in stock, I'm going to roll the dice on this one:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813153027

It is for my son, the 11 year old, and the on board graphics will be just good enough for his DX9 games. (beats his old 8500 anyway. )

That's an interesting m'board. Question, please. The specs at Newegg say that this board has two PCI slots--and two PCIe slots. Are both form factors identical? At least as far as both PCIe and PCI cards will fit in the slots properly?
