Yeah, I looked at getting a 760k but it's $90. The FX-6300 is much faster and only $10 more. I just can't make that purchase. If the FX-6300 is $100 then the 760k needs to be around $65.

The FX-6300 has the same IPC as any FM2 Piledriver chip. Just that if you were using the cores from the extra module the FX-6300 gives you, you'd get that extra performance I suppose.

They had/have(?) a tendency to blow up.

Now I'm guessing you aren't comparing the prices from the same source. An fx6300 for $100 is a good deal, whereas the 760k at $90 is just retail price.

Who says you need a 760K as a placeholder, any good valued fm2 will do.

ASRock/MSI aren't bad at all, they just have some models you have to avoid. Not really the case with Asus/Gigabyte even if one could find exceptions. Anyways, with Gigabyte I don't have to find info on what's behind the heatsinks before considering a purchase of their products.

So your past X58 rig went away?

You're doing it wrong bro.
Ran this board for 2 years pulling 180w constantly.

ASRock 4+1.

Lol so you run 1 am3 board without issue and everyone else must be doing it wrong? Even though all the reported issues are with fm socket boards?
Not to mention the fm2 a75 itx couldn't run memory at anything close to rated speeds, while the fm1 itx had no problems.
Guys were drawing 100w+ while in bios through 65w chips. (fm2 a75 itx)
Asrock f'd up. Thats why theres a revision and a better replacement board. Get off your high horse just because your single unrelated setup hasn't yet had an issue.


As for my setup, I was using a down blowing cooler with an upgraded fan (120x25mm), and even added vrm sinks to it to try and keep them cool. The a75 itx was a 3+1 setup. My asus cheapie fm1 board's vrms run cooler under full load than the asrock board did idling. And the only way for the gpu to be stable with any overclock was to have AXTU auto enabled. Turn it off, crash. Leave it on, stable.

Either the motherboard or the cpu has been damaged and is causing everything to stutter so it needs replacing. Sucks because I really don't need anything faster.

I tend to prefer Gigabyte motherboards, but this looks pretty nice. Strange that this is the "high end" though. Maybe this is the highest end at launch, with a bigger badder version later?

Also Isn't ASRock just ASUS lite? Pretty sure ASUS owns them and purposefully pushes them down market.

Not saying they're bad boards. I had an intel chipset Extreme4 that was a pretty nice, well performing board, but I dont have much experience with them. Seem to be decent quality with excellent bang for buck.

Asus used to own ASRock.

I've ran a few ASRock boards, both FM, one FM1 and maybe one FM2, can't remember. I've had no problems with either. Just because you and some other people had problems doesn't mean everyone is having problem or the boards are trash. Every piece of electronics have problems. Get off your high horse just because your single related setup had an issue.
