View Full Version : Got onvia PIII 700 FC-PGA cB0 Stepping, then what?
I just ordered this CPU from onvia.
I heard most of this CPU can be overclocked to 933.
Now, I need mobo, 128 MB PC-133 RAM, and good colling fan to overclock.
Any suggestion on mobo?
I'm thinking about Soyo SY-6BA+IV for mobo and golden orb for cooling.
Also, will any brand of 250 watt ATX mid tower be ok?
I don't know anything about overclocking.

If you only going to overclock to 933 then you can do it with the stock parts that come with the retail chip you just bought. If you still want to purchase cooling, then go with the Golden Orb.
The board you mentioned is one of the best but you might consider the next step up. SOYO recently came out with the SY-6BA+100 which is a build off of the SY-6BA+IV and they just added the HighPoint HPT366 ATA/66 controller with the HPT370, which is pin compatible, effectively adding ATA/100 and IDE RAID. If you plan to upgrade your hard drives at any time you may want to consider this, and this is backwards compatible.

Prices on this board:
As far as the case and power supply you might want to consider looking more for a 300watt power supply so not to limit yourself if you plan to add down the road. ATX is the form factor you want though.
Everyone is selling RAM so you just have to find the best deal at the time you are looking. RAM prices seem high to me right now. I too am looking for some PC-133 but I am waiting on the prices to drop again, if they ever do.

Also, be advised that some people don't like post like this in a deal forum. You might want to wander over to the Gotapex overclocking forum for futher information.
Thanks for the tip.
I'll try post this in overclocking section.
I'm sorry if I bother anyone.

IMHO, In-win cases are some of the best. You can check out their website for the diff. models: http://www.in-win.com and use pricewatch/pricegrabber to find the cheapest price. A friend of mine just built his and he got a nice looking one for $40.
