Hi Guys, help me choose the best motherboard for the money. Thanks
sabertooth is my favourite (not on the list)
second would be fatality followed by the extreme4
the rest arent worth the hassle
Sabertooth is beyond 10k budget hehehehe
Please Vote Guys!
ASRock 990FX Extreme3
i use that board and im pretty satisfied with it
1. I just love the MSI 990FXA-GD80,
2. but the ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0 has all the same features but cheaper
3. The Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 has all the same features and price as the ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0 so depends on which you prefer
4. ASRock 990FX Extreme3 is great but has smaller cooling for VRM's (buy looking at the picture)
5. ASRock 990FX Extreme4 meh
6. ASRock 990FX Extreme9 looks awesome but for it's price doesn't seem to offer more than the ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0
7. ASRock Fatal1ty 990FX Professional seems nice
I'll go with the ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0
MSI GD65, not on list out of those on the list my vote would go to the UD3, only because you have asked for "Bang for Buck"
I am currently using an Asus board and I love how stable and durable this board is. I have heard good new about the UD3 and with 1k difference, I will go with the UD3 and spend the 1k for shipping and other processes. Thanks.
Guys in this forum told me that I skip the MSI boards since they don't have a decent PWM for this motherboards. Any opinion on this one?
i realy dont think msi boards are bad at all!!
the one msi that u put on list is great borad...
but its prety expensive and not offering nothing special over ud3 or pro 2,and they both god for overclocking and have fair amount of features!!
MSI GD80 is really expensive though, I am going with Asus or Gigabyte depending on how much I save up with the money. Thanks!
Giga ud3 is a great board. I run one and love it.
Thanks bro! I will go for it after the money is ready. Final board to pair up my 8320 will be the Gigabyte UD3.
Asrock 990FX extreme 4 is the best bang for bug.
all fans(around 6-7) can be controlled by software, excellent temps, and very very stable voltage.
i highly suggest either go for asrock or gigabyte. gigabyte is usually more expensive for the same stuff.
no MSI asus nonsense. msi has serious VRM getting burnt issues and ASUS has just gone bad with their RMA service /quality for motherboards.
what pcie cards will you plug ?
AsRock Extreme 4 and Gigabyte are my top 2 choices. I have decided to go with Gigabyte since its much cheaper and its a very good board from the feedback and votes i had here.
I have a 7870 right now and have another one once mining is down hahahaha.
I will have crossfire in the future.
Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 (rev. 4.0)
ASUS Sabertooth would be a good choice, but not on the list.
i think i would take the ASRock 990FX Extreme3 that is the cheapest and has all you need for gaming or mining .
the only one making a big difference being the ASRock Fatal1ty 990FX Killer that has good things for gamers : a very soundcard , a network chips and can carry twice the ram of others cards .
may be it is not the same as the one you listed : http://www.ldlc.com/fiche/PB00160338.html
so 96 euro or 146 ?
Heya, for me it's either the asus or the rev 4 ud3 (using a ud3 as well) pretty solid, if I were to get a wc on my 8350 proly I could push farther. No complaints with the rev 4 :-D
ASUS Sabertooth is beyond my budget bro
I am not into mining bro. Extreme 3 is really good but I will stick with the UD3
For Fatal1ty I might consider this one when it drops prices.
Does UD3 v4.0 needs a bios update to run 8320?
UD3- I have the old rev, never had a problem. I got a buddy a new version, same way. IMO best bang for the buck.
