Does anyone have a list of.. 990FX boards from different manuf. that 3 way SLI?

Hi guys

I am at the end of my tether, please see last post update here:

http://www.overclock.net/t/1395886/660-ti-3-way-sli/0_100#post_20076300

So I know about ROG for a start and the ASRock EX9 as well. there is a gigabyte that is impossible to get in the UK.. and I don't even know if I want to go gigabyte. but yeah maybe. top brand.. feel a bit disloyal to asrock.. my mainstay manuf.

So to ask (please no foxconn) what are the high end equivs to the Asus and ASRock boards? MSI did Afterburner for the community.. really interested in them* these days.

non-Asus and non-ASRock boards only please. as I know their whole selection. ..the sabertooth does not do 3way SLI fyi.

rep offered for the most comprehensive list.

This CHVF board cost me £140 on ebay manuf. refurb. feedback is left and I have no RMA. its basically knackered but working just now. can't wait to see the back of it. this has been a nightmare.

Dava

*they have this board but no mention of three way. http://uk.msi.com/product/mb/990FXA-GD80.html#/?div=Overview looks doubtful.

I know you said Gigabyte is hard to get in the UK but they make incredibly good motherboards for every price segment of the market. Their features and quality control are right up there with Asus so if you can find one, I would definitely recommend it. So here is their top tier am3+ board which actually has higher OC potential than the crosshair so it would be my top choice for an am3+ mobo.

http://www.gigabyte.us/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3880

MSI is a decent manufacturer, though not up to the standards in terms of features and quality of Asus, ASRock, or Gigabyte, but nothing to scoff at. This is their most feature packed, highest performance board, although I would recommend the others before this one:

http://us.msi.com/product/mb/990FXA-GD80V2.html

So my list for the best 990FX boards would be...
1. Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD7
2. ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z
3. ASRock 990FX Extreme9
4. MSI 990FXA-GD80 V2

I have 990FX sabertooth... it does 3 way just fine

the 990fxa gd80 as mentioned above is also good.

I know you have a hard time getting gigabyte, but I would strongly consider the 990FX UD7. I owned one and it was a fantastic board. Really the best 990 board you can buy, esp the rev 1.0 and later that didnt have the LLC issue that the first gen had

Thanks for the answers guys.. you're really helping me.

After I wrote about the Sabertooth.. I saw some reviewers saying it would.. but couldn't find it on the Asus site. the page i saw only said 'Quad'.
but yes you have seen it, done it, made a scrapbook photo album mxthunder tongue.gif .. soo the Sabertooth is in the lead after my current nightmare ROG board.
I don't think the EX9 will fit in my case and be able to 3way SLI.

you both recommended the Gigabyte.. which I do think would be an amazing board. .. you know its bad when even ebay doesn't have it!
I'll hunt around for a UD7.. maybe try amazon.. ebuyer.. and my fav dabs.

shame the MSI board didn't do three way.. coz I would have liked to give them a try..

Come to think of it, depending on the case you have, you may have a hard time doing 3 way with the sabertooth because you have to use the bottom PCIE slot, and a dual slot card will overhang the mobo by 1 slot.

What do you mean the MSI board wont do three way?
