Solid mobo for FX-series

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

so I'm thinking of buying a FX-6350 for my gaming build.

As the thread name suggests I'm now looking for a "solid" mobo. I'll be doing some OC'ing but nothing crazy. Budget is around $100.

Thanks a million!

I can't access it because I'm at work, but go through this list and find a "recommended" one that you like. The list is fantastic, comprehensive, and absolutely a necessity when purchasing an AMD mobo.

However, I've got a Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 and absolutely love the thing. It's not much over your $100 budget, it's all black so it matches anything, and has done a great job.

The m5a99x evo/pro are also good options. Very high quality vrm's (The same quality as those used on the sabertooth and crosshair motherboards) although in a 6+2 configuration. I have the evo version of this board and it runs my fx 6300 @ 4.6ghz all day.

Thanks guys!

I think I'm going to go with the Gigabyte ga-990fxa-ud3

DO NOT get the GA-990FXA-UD3 if you cannot be sure that it won't be the Revision 3.0 as it is plagued with lots of problems, ranging from overheating NB to CPU throttling. Check the Gigabye 990FX club if you do not believe me.
On topic, a GA-970A-UD3 will be sufficient to run your chip and get a good OC.
