Well I am stuck with my 3.0 board. Had too many issues with micro center and put 120 miles back and forth to that place the past week to get things right. I drive a truck so that is gas and I live in the DC area.


First the MSI board that I got had the 970 chipset and that board is just bad for the FX8350.

Second one bad stick of DRR3 ram and they said I messed it up. Got $20.00 off a 16 GB set so with tax under 115 for 16gb of ram.

Third First gigabyte board had a bad PCI-E 16.0 slot on the first slot. had to go back, that was on a Rev1.1 board.

They got a new shipment and they are all 3.0 so I said just give me the board.

So far everything is stable but my windows. Cannot find my Prox64 for a new install and still want to get a 1TB internal Western Digital with 64mb of cache for it and a SSD to do caching.

Just tire I had to do all this back and forth.

At least I got the two year micro center warranty. Should be good for something.

Grab a 80mm fan and rig it on top of the VRM heat sink should you run into trouble.

I actually just got done doing that and Im' stress testing at 4.5GHz, hopefully the heat where I live stays down as it's the only reason I haven't be really willing to try this out yet. So far so good, though I do have to keep HPC on though otherwise I get throttling at stock voltage. Looks like at full load CPU and NB maxed at 51C , that is only from a 10-15min run though.

I'm using the stock fan that comes with FX-8350 and have it running through SpeedFan as at 100% the damn thing sounds like a jet engine. I'm trying to see just how low I can let the fan go because it's still somewhat annoying, granted the rest of my rig is pretty loud. haha

Going to do that if I have issues. found my corsair ram cooler and will use that too just to lower temps. Every little bit helps.

I am at 43 cpu this morning and its been dking downloading and updates, so not bad. Running a disk defrag due to startup windows issues last night.

You shouldn't run into any problems unless you run something that puts it at or very close to full load.

Newegg migtht not buy in as large as batches as Microcenter. This is one of microcenter's standard bundle so you never know how many they ordered to keep at the warehouse. Also I traded it one on one with a MSI 970A-G46 and they did not want me to pay anything else I did get the two year warrenty. Basically means if mine fails they will replace it from the store. $226 for a GA990FXA and FX8350 is a good deal. Now they have the Asus mid range board in stock but as long as this runs I am okay with it.

What CPU are you running? If it's an 8350, then don't bother with it at all. My UD3 was throttling my 8350 at stock speeds, no OC. Might have to pay restocking fees, but the UD5 is probably worth it. I just got mine up and running last night and it's 100% better already.

Well this isn't for me it's for a friend. I had just built him a 6300 rig on a ASrock 970 Extreme4. Tested it over the weekend gamed on it and had no problems. Soon as he took it home he was playing and the display wouldn't respond, and the mouse/Kb lost power. I assume it's the board honestly jumping to conclusion too quickly, but oh well i have two motherboards to test this weekend. Latest purchased reviews for the 970 extreme4 weren't looking too good honestly. I had to clear CMOS just to get the extreme 4 to post which a bit unnerving. So i went ahead and said screw it we'll up the budget 30$ and get a better board. This is with no overclocking or anything.
