Need MB recommendation - Page 2

You might want to look at this thread about VRMs. The MSI GD65 is 8+2, but I don't know if it's up to handling an 8320. The UD3 is also 8+2 and I know it can't handle an 8350.

I have an MSI GD80 and it does not seem to have the always on usb ports, and it uses the ALC892.

I have an infrared thermometer and while stress testing it at 4.7ghz the VRMs never get hotter than 42C. For normal use they are around 34C. So I say MSI has learned from their past mistakes. It also has a great bios.

I had a UD3 R3 and R4 and you do not want them. That ASUS does look nice.

Well, Newegg decided for me, Sale on the m5a99fx pro r2 $135! and combo deal with FX-8350 $309! so $40 off total. Had to get some DD3 memory too, so ordered G.SKILL Sniper Gaming Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 CL9-9-9-24 1.5v for $110 after promo code.

Thanks everyone!

970a-ud3 has not been recommended has a 8+2 phase and is around $100 beats everyone else for value... but too late.

I looked at that one too, almost bought it, decided I wanted the black PC-board though.
