AM3+ Board

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a good MOBO which has a AM3+ socket. As cheap as possible. For gaming and OC purposes. For a FX series CPU. Possibly 4100 or 4300.

If you want a cheap one go Asrock 970 Extreme3. It's phased 4+1 but is heatsinked. Otherwise go Gigabyte ga-970a-ud3 or Sapphire 990fx which are 8+4.

I wouldn't normally recommend Asrock, but they're cheap and this Mobo has decent reviews. Do you want something More expensive?

I want to see you overclock a Bulldozer on this...

I found this one also...a bit more on the expensive side..but it should suit your overclocking needs.

I hope you are trolling... A 4+1 phased board with unheatsinked vrms for overclocking? That's as bad as the other one.

^^^This one will work just fine. AsRock 970 Extreme 3 is a very good budget mobo.

Give us a budget to work with. Cheap can be a lot of things.

You want to spend as much as you can realistically on your motherboard. It is the foundation of your entire rig and will largely determine how far you can push your rig, how long you will keep it and how much you can upgrade it. You want as well built a motherboard as possible and cheap boards usually arent. $125 would be as cheap as Id want to go for an overclocking motherboard especially with something as power hungry as an AMD chip.

This Asus 970 board for $100 would be the cheapest Id recommend with a straight face.

Id rather see you get this Asus 990X Evo for $130 though. Money well spent.
