Best motherboard for $300 dollars? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
The higher amount of phases results in better power delivery and by extension, better overclocking. If a board with better VRMs can be gotten for the price (i.e. more phases) on a decent board, brand not being an issue, then go for it.

I hate how people compare number of phases... I've heard two stories of a UD3R catching on fire while overclocking. I never heard one about the Rampage 3 Formula on fire. Take DFI Lanparty 790FX-B M2RSH phases for example which has 4+1, AMD reached 6.5Ghz with it and broke a record. It's not the number of phases but the quality of phases.

If DFI still made boards I would take a 4+1 phase board over Gigabytes 24 phase boards.

Like many said don't bother getting a 1366 board ask for cash and save.
