Best Value / Overclocking Motherboards

Best Value Motherboard:

In terms of value the ECS L4IBAE easily wins hands down. For a mere $160 CDN the board has a ton of features; 10/100 LAN, audio, RAID, IEEE 1394 and six PCI slots! Of course being a budget board, the L4IBAE didn't have many overclocking options and wouldn't really satisfy the hard core enthusiasts.

If you're going to run your motherboard at stock speeds check out the ECS L4IBAE, it's a good package that is very hard to beat!

Best Overclocking Motherboard:

Most of the motherboards in this roundup were pretty good overclockers, but the Abit BG7 stood above the rest. This was particularly impressive since the motherboard doesn't have the best overclocking options. VCore can only go up 15% and memory voltage up to just 2.8V but it was still enough to beat the rest.

Abit BG7


MFG Link: Abit BG7
Processor Intel Pentium4
Northbridge Intel i845G
Southbridge Intel ICH4
Supported FSB 100/133 MHz
Form Factor ATX
DIMM Slots Three PC1600/2100/2700

Integrated Video Yes
Shared Video Memory 1,8MB
IDE 2 Ultra/100, 2 Ultra/133
AGP 4x AGP, 1.5V Lock
PCI 6 32bit PCI's

LAN 10/100 Realtek 8100B
Audio Realtek ALC650 AC'97
USB 6 USB 2.0

Misc 2 Serial, 1 Parallel, WoL,

These two runner up motherboards are impressive in their own right, but only one of the ten boards we tested had all the features, performance and sticker price to earn an Editor's Choice Award. Let's see which board that is right now!
