I've got one running in my server (cloud nine in sig), it's a good board. Even has 8+2 phase on a budget. Shame you can't spend just a little more, the 990FXA-UD3 is excellent, but that whole "just a little more" can eat up money fast. tongue.gif

Anyway, it wasn't linked earlier, but we have this neat database of just about any motherboard made for recent AMD sockets that details their VRMs:
http://www.overclock.net/t/946407/amd-motherboard-vrm-info-database-now-with-socket-fm2

I always refer to it, and commonly complain that we don't have one for Intel boards. Extremely handy when comparing what to get.

Yeah honestly I don't really need something spectacular. I just want to be able to play my games and develop without worrying about my VRMs exploding and blowing everything up tongue.gif

You'll be happy, Gigabyte makes very good stuff, it's worth the small premium. Extremely strong PCB, Dual-BIOS incase one screws up, good VRMs and cooled well even on the lower end boards, etc.

If ASUS is the king of overclocking, Gigabyte is the king of Durability.

Hahaha, well said. Awesome thanks. Gonna go instore and return my MSI and pick up the Gigabyte. You think it's necessary to reformat? I mean the chipset is the same, only thing thats different is the MSI drivers (gonna uninstall those obviously)
