The best platform for the money depends on what you do and what you have. For you, it would be a simple upgrade to a Vishera 8 core. If starting anew, I would say a $120 Z87 board and a 4670k.

But a new Vishera is the best bang for the buck upgrade for you atm thumb.gif

If you're staying with the FX 8350 or 9370, get an ASUS Sabertooth 990 FX R2.0. Easily the best motherboard for overclocking and high performance FX 8 core chips.

So like the FX8350 and leave the 9000 series alone?

Ic, if I do that then I can pass the Sabertooth FX990 R1 to the wife PC system.

I should also be able to get away with using an air cooler Noctua NH-D14 correct?

Also forgot to mention reason I am doing this upgrade is because I am planning to setup my PC as a Hybrid GNS3 + Real Switches for my CCNA and CCNP Lab. I have to grab an expensive Quad NIC card $177.69 or route everything over USB 3.0 which two module will be about $129.98 for 4 switches.

Yes the Noctua NH-D14 should work fine, I've seen a few 9590 users with those, and they worked well thumb.gif I admit I don't know much about Hybrid GNS3's though, not really up my alley.

Haha np, Trying to balance the build a bit since I will be upgrading the wife AMD APU system with my Mobo and CPU instead. Maybe up the ram to 16GBs. Not sure yet since I also will need to up her Video card unless it can wait. She has the HD6670 maybe up her video card to HD7770 or I can grab a 7850 to move my 6950 to her. Not sure yet. lol decision, decision.

Anyone here know if this is a good motherboard ASRock 990FX EXTREME3 Socket AM3+/ AMD 990FX for the FX 8350 or should stick with the Sabertooth R2?

The Extreme3 is meh, I'd get the Extreme9 if going Asrock. That Sabertooth is definitely your best bet though thumb.gif

I see, the Asrock AMD 990FX Extreme9 looks impressive but the Sabertooth R2 is cheaper and love the 5 year warranty on it. biggrin.gif
