I have the Sabertooth 990FX and got my FX-6100 to 4.7GHz no fuss. I think when it comes down to it you have to decide what you like best. I've heard about issues with the Crosshair V but not sure how bad they are. as I'm sure some people have had issues with the sabertooth.
I say when it comes to mobo get what you prefer, as when you get into the high end boards its more a matter of like and opinion, its when you get into midrange and lower boards you realy need to look at how they are made and what they can handle.

I went Sabertooth beacuse I liked what it had to offer, and only later found out in reviews it is frequently picked as best performer for price and performance.

I like my FX-4100@ 4.6 just fine. It plays all of my games with a GTX 470 just fine at 1680x1050.
My FX-4100@4.9 able to play BF3 like a champ

OK GUYs... I got my FX-6100 and ASRock 880G/PRO3... not a good combo I must say....... The FX-4100 is way easier to OC. I will reinstall the OS and see if that helps. Can't POST higher than 4.3GHz, maybe 1GHz OC is good enough thumb.gif ....FOR NOW!


You think My Memory is a huge Factor?

This is My HTPC setup:

ASROCK 880G/PRO3
AMD FX-6100

That's exactly what I wanted to hear! I'm not picky...in addition to that I'm told that there should be revisions of the 8 core chip, and updates for current chips..so, I'll upgrade later..for the time being I just want to whip up something quickly and play these games..

Gave the sig rig to a relative a while back... also started uni so I decided to get a laptop and ps3...i find myself missing pc gaming so I want to build a great pc...despite what everyone is saying I actually dont care how the amd chips perform...I mean, I didn't have any expectations for bulldozer or even sandy bridge when it came out...I just say to myself , "will it do what I WANT"? The only thing that matters is whether or not it can do what I want...in this case its gaming, internet surfing, and light editing.

When I got into pc gaming I was very new to the whole thing..I always played on consoles and thought that was "acceptable"...I built a 2500k/2600k/980x pc and played on a friends pc which had a 1090t and crossfired 6970's...I tried the 6970's with my intel chips and it all looked the same to me lol...some see it as a downgrade.. I see it as me getting back to what i enjoy.... so fps doesn't mean much on my 1080p monitor.

Besides AM3+ boards are so great for what they offer and chips are cheap and get the job done..
