Thank you! Can't wait for this one. I will give feedback once this is all ready. Thanks!
Thank you so there are no problems installing my proc in the future.
yes get the ud3. back when i got the asrock 990fx extreme 4, it was cheaper, but now it seems that the ud3 is cheaper than that even here.
but the PCIE slots for ud3 are x16 x8 x4 over here.
the one in mine are x16 x16 x4
so keep that in mind specially if you want to crossfire.
Before you make a choice you might want to read the
AMD Motherboards - VRM info database
i myself went through that when i got my board
that is indeed a good link. i was looking for it to post here, but i couldnt remember thanks !
No problem glad i coud help
the UD3 is at 118 euro , difference is only 28 euro
plus the fatality has a dual memory system , may be that increase a lot memory transfers
plus it has a lot of usb ports...
the gigabite has a plus but it seems that is a hd raid controller
whats the purpose of the motheboard?
overclocking with 8cores, then id avoid the majority and get a fatality or extreme9
general use, games etc then extreme4 or UD3 as long as the .4 revision was revised!
from my experience and learning, gigabyte AM3 boards are average or sometimes below, asus and their digi-vrms on mid-end boards are temperamental, asrock are solid but featureless, msi AM3 boards have weak vrms.
The UD3 I have posted had 16/16/4 as well. And I am planning to do crossfire in the future.
Thanks! I'm reading it now and so far so good.
I'm not doing overclocking with my future setup. This will be my everyday use and gaming rig.
Most of our sellers here in Manila have the rev 4.0 ud3, was aiming for saber r2 but the giga one was on sale. And yea it ran my 8350 out of the box.
Have fun with the new build.
the asrock fatality killer seems to be one , i found a review on it by specialists of ssds and this board is largely the best with latest technologies
he compares it to the latest and most expensive intel mainboard ....
have a read :
I'll pm you bro. Hehehehe
I've read one review of this board and it's amazing except for the price
ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0
I have this board and it does the job well.
Ouch 1k price hike over UD3.
Id suggest the GA UD3- thats my second choice to my Sabertooth here.
A stupid question: What are that "P*" values in the options? What do they mean?
Philippine Peso Currency
As of now 1$ = ₱44
And you are lucky, that board is costing $230 here (best price).
if sparing 28 euros or 37 dollars on a mainboard is so important then....
that asrock killer board is useless to any mainstream user. very few people will need sas. and since his will be a mining rig, there is no reason for investing even 10$ extra on features that he will never use.
remember the title says best bang for buck. that doesnt imply how many features/$$ but how many features he can use/$$
I don't do mining. This will be an everyday and gaming rig.
mining = everyday stuff + ability to be turned on 24x7
u want bang for buck, so its worthwile to get a good durable stuff.
