i am currently leaning towards this since i read that it has good and quiet performance while leaving the motherboard rather uncluttered in comparison to the nh-l12.

Moreover from a closer inspection it seems that it does not need a back-plate since it locks of the default base that already exists on the motherboard. if i am wrong please correct me

Finally excuse my ignorance for asking this, but i see a lot of users that under-volt their cpu or run it like a a5700. Is not this like demoting/cutting down the performance potential of the cpu? i understand that this will bring heat and power consumption down but if somebody is looking for something like the a5700 why not buy this directly? Again i am asking because i do not see the point in doing that as a permanent thing.

Reasoning is backwards. For the same price, why would you not get the higher clocked 5800?
The original thought was that the 5700 was a special low power binned Trinity but it turned out not to be the case. I guess the 5800 is fully "unlocked" so that is another reason. However, it seems I have full control over my 5700s OC abilities so I'm not sure what the differences is between the K and non K models are at this point. Someone else can answer that question as I am curious?
I was expecting not to be able to change my multipliers but I can.

ok i agree, i thought that the would be some 'significant' price difference but obviously there is not. i have not researched the a5700 price-wise to be honest. the unlock feature is another plus, so yes you and many others are right for going with the a5800 and tuning it down a bit.

somebody mentioned the a10-6800 in the thread that it seems to be coming out this march. i have decided to put my plans for the built on hold, the timing was excellent i was going to start ordering parts this weekend.

i will revisit the built in march as soon as there some data on the a10-6800k.

well i wanted the A5700 but its not available in my country so why not a K. tbh i prefer the zigmatek over the noctua especially when there is little performance/noise difference but the ziggy is less then half the price and its also a universal design for both intel and AMD while with the noctua you are stuck with what you bought

Can you increase your multiples freely as well?
Locked basically means that there are no high multiples to choose, I think.

Any new info on the 6800K? cpu-world.com says we're waiting on this chip at around June 2013 (and google apparently cached that page 5 days ago). There's no 6800K on the english wikipedia AMD Fusion page

Wikipedia reports the Richland desktop chip to arrive at March 19

im pretty sure unlocked aka K series means there is a huge multiplier range from 16x to what ever the artificial cap is while non K aka locked means you get to choose from 16x to what ever the advertised speed is in terms of multipliers so the only other way to overclock is by increasing the FSB/ base clock or what ever that is equivalent to for the relevant CPU

Hi,

I'm just considering to replace my Gigabyte A85xm-D3H with this asrock itx board.
The gigabyte board don't allow bios undervolting, but I need it to get decent temperatures with my A10-5700. (I have a fanless heatpipe HFX case)

I downloaded FM2A85X manual, but don't find answers to all my questions:
  1. Does the bios allow undervolting? (cpu & nb core)
  2. Does asrock fan control allow to completly poweroff a pwm fan? I need to keep it off unless system reach a maximum temperature (for safety purpose)
  3. Any good ram sticks @ 2133Mhz with lowest possible voltage?
  4. Single or dual channels? (important for games?) 4Go ram is enough?

Thanks

Hi All,

I want to use this mb with a good low profile quite cooler . Which ones compatible. is Scythe kozuti sckzt-1000 ok? I didn't understand whether compatible or not.

My shopping list : processor a6 5400k, ram 8gb kingston hyperx 1600 , Akasa Crypto PC Chasis

Thanks

Finally some pics from gigabyte....



5 power phases with PowlRstage mosfets, not that bad
