  • Which motherboards do you use for your quadcores?

    Which motherboards are in use with success, and with which processors?

    I´m eager to find out why my DP35 with 6600 processors doesn´t like my NX...

      Cool, thanks!

      I can see our systems are identical, except for the motherboard. I think I´m gonna switch to the 975 right away - the DP35 is faster, but what help is that if it´s incompatible.

        Hi Erik,

        I have just installed an ASUS P5K Premium MB with a Q6600 CPU and 2GB DDR2 memory.

        Edius has never worked better, I can now capture/edit/play HDV without any problem, and without an NX board, I am using E4.51c.

        When I check in Task Manager whilst capturing HDV it uses all four cores and runs at around 20%, how cool is that?

        Best of luck.

        Gordon.

            Hi Gordon. I also have been researching the Asus boards for a Q6600, and they look terrific. There are a slew of P5K boards - and you stated you have the P5K Premium. Is that the P5K Premium/WiFi-AP board? And did you over-clock it at all?
            Thanks for confirming my research!

              Hi Alan,

              Yes it is that very model and no, I haven't as yet overclocked the Q6600, although I understand that this MB supports that action. I find that so far it does all I want, although I haven't done any serious work thus far, just captured HDV and played back and tried the odd 3D transition, without a glitch.

              I can confidently recommend the ASUS board.

              Regards,

              Gordon.

                I use the GA-965P-DQ6 and it works without a hitch!

                  I have the P5K WS, I needed a pci-x slot. Yes, I have overclocked it to 3.01 with doosy of a cooler on it. I am not running an NX card, however, I do have the Decklink Intensity Pro on board as well as Edius 4.5 in software mode. My Extreme 2.93 clocked at 3.3 romps all over the quad in everything except AE CS3. That for a fact uses multi cores.
                  I still prefer my other motherboard the P5WDG2 WS PRO. It has 2 pci-x slots and 2 16x pci express slots. It will run the quads and the 1333fsb processors.

                    I use the same MB too and I plan to upgrade too the Q6600.

                    When I started building my own PCs for NLE (in 1999), it was Asus all the way with excellent tech support too. But tech support for Asus went down hill to the point they would not even respond to my emails (don't know about now but it's their loss). I went with Gigabtye and tech support is great, I recall with my 3.06Ghz system (before my current system) I needed some BIOS setting that where not in the BIOS and within a few days Gigabtye email me the a new beta BIOS revision with the BIOS settings that I needed. Now that is support and my last 2 systems are based on Gigabyte MBs and my future systems.

                      Asus builds quality stuff so usually you don't need to call their support. I think Abit has bad support, but their mobos are rock solid just like Asus.

                      I am a huge Asus fan (Abit is up there too). My Trusty IC7-G has been working since late 2003 with the DVStorm2 without a hitch. The NB fan went down twice though, but now I put in a custom one and it's still chugging along. Good thing the newer mobos don't have NB fans..

                        I use the Asus P5WDG2 WS PRO in my two main editing system with and without NX card and Quad 6600. Also I use the Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 mobo with Quad 6600 and without NX. All of these run like a champ.

                          Wow - Thanks for all the answers!! I just sent the thread here to my hardware-supplier, so he can do the math on which mobo to choose in order to get top performance!!

                          Thanks guys!

                              I have just installed a Gigabyte P35C-DS3R board and from what I can tell it seems to be working fine. Was able to capture HD from my camcorder last night and although I haven't had time to play it seems fine.
                              Also have the Q6600 quad core on it and boy these CPU's fly... I didn't expect such a jump from the AMD dual core that I did have.
