Can you run to £70 for a GA-890GPA-UD3H rev 2.1 posted ? It took my unlocked x2 555 to 4.2@ 1.52v. Has crossfire potential 8x8 also. Ran very well and I only had it for about 5 months.

I'm looking to sell it now I have a sandy rig up and running.

OK no worries bud. AMD chips are fine up to 1.55v with good air cooling, My Corsair A70 tamed the beast very well :) I had to run it that high as I was also running a 2.9 NB, it helped with stability.

I thought for £50 odd quid someone would have a decent board better than what's available at retail prices. Ill see what claylomax posts up later.

it's an nvidia chipset after all...
Nah! ok it's a really good board for 50 euro but nvidia are pretty much dead as a chipset now a days ever since AMD launch the 790fx chipset

Its a good board, for some reason i didn't think it was the one in your specs you where selling, i thought you where going to post up another board. Also i was just speaking in general terms about how ive only seen motherboards for retail prices.

Gigabyte 790FXTA-UD5 interest you?
Great mobo, does interest me but depends on price posted.

Zombie thread revival!

Hadn't spoken to my friend in awhile but he wants to take some old parts to make a pc for a family member. The board im looking for will replace his old shitty AM2+ board so he can use that in another pc.
He has a Phenom II x4 955.

Just worth mentioning; you may need to look into a 790(f)x based board to guarantee the legacy IDE. Might be able to find an M4A79XTD Evo for the price your asking.

Funny you say that as i used to own a M4A79XTD, it wasn't too shabby and id be happy if i could find one. Anything that isn't low end junk would be fine. If it where up to me i wouldn't bother with IDE since its mostly obsolete but my friend insists. I've been checking locally and on ebay, i know roughly what i may be able to get in price.

Me personally, I would look into an IDE->SATA or a bootable PCI IDE card, that way you have a broader choice of boards.

Won an auction for an Asus M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 motherboard, only problem is that it is board only no accessories or even an I/O backplate. £33 inc postage tho so i was thinking i might not see another price like that for a while.
