Just ordered a ASRock 890FX Deluxe4

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well just ordered one. I've never used this brand of motherboard but reviews all look positive. Plus the price for what it offers is just awesome. My Gigabyte I dunno It's the first time I used one it just felt mediocre to me. BIOS weren't really that great and I don't think it was the most stable motherboard. Granted it wasn't the best board from Gigabyte but I was on a budget at the time. Still though I was able to achieve a 4ghz OC on it. Not bashing the board it performed just fine. Just not to my liking I guess.

I was gonna buy a CH IV but price and the fact single GPU's are limited to 4x. Granted I game on a single monitor but I can't drop a chunk of money like that right now to run Dual GPU's. This provides a solid option for expandability and upgrades over the next month or two once I get another GPU,monitor, and the watercooling items to go with that.

I'm sticking with AMD well at least the Phenom II anyways. Bulldozer meh whatever gotta see how the chip revisions go to make my mind up for that. Let things mature. I'm in no hurry I just mostly game with my pc anyways. Its not like I'm editing or encoding anything.

We'll now I'm just going on now. Was just wondering if anyone has had some experience with this particular motherboard and brand. Pointers or tweaks or just some info to consider on this motherboard.
