Good Motherboard for FX-4300?

post #1 of 43
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, this summer I will probably have about 600$ in a few weeks. Now if I wanted to make a budget gaming build for my brother with an FX-4300, what would be a good mobo for a budget build? Could I get one that could OC well (to 4.2 GHz) for 120$ or less?

the best motherboard at that price point is probably going to be the Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3 for $105

Best for price
Asrock 970 extreme 3, for the 970 chipset.
Biostart 990fxe for the 990 chipset.

Top of the line would be
Crosshair V/Sabertooth
Asrock 990 fatality.

Asrock 970 extreme 3 would be the cheapest and it will handle that 4300 without a problem. I have a 8320 with 1 core disable per module and I'm running at 4.7ghz.

I'm not really good with AMD but how about the M5A99X EVO.

Thanks guys, Will I need a aftermarket cooler to OC at all, or can i just use the stock fan for mild OCs (4.2-4.5)?

Would a Hyper 212 evo do the job well enough? Also, do I need fast memory for the chip, or will 1333mhz do fine?

if you can swing the few $$$, the 970 Extreme4 is vastly superior in almost every way.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157262

The best part is that it actually uses the 990X chipset, so you get all the benefits that go along with that (mostly 8x8x CFX/SLI support)

It's only $15 more, so I'd say its worth it

AsRock 970 Extreme4- 99$
G.Skill Ripjaws 8Gb 1600mhz- 35$
CM Storm Scout 2- 99$
Corsair 500w- 50$
Crucial m4 64gb- 60$
Samsung spinfast f3 500gb- 75$
DVD drive- 15$

Then I have room for mouse and keyboard,monitor, Then hopefully Graphics Card later on tongue.gif , etc.
Thanks a lot for your help, everybody. thumb.gif
