if the disabled GPU version is as cheap as the 860k was, I'm sure a few of us will give it a shot.

I don't think you will. The board is top notch. Fun to tinker with all the overclocking settings.

This pic makes the A88x Pro look not too ****ty lol

If all you want are the overclocking capabilities, the A88X-PRO is every bit its equal and is only $95 after rebate at Newegg right now. The Crossblade Ranger has the sizzle, but both boards have the steak.

Way better than Gigabyte or ASRock imho.They use very beefy chokes and top notch mosfets. The pcb's are thick. I can't comment on their low end boards as I never purchased one.

I doubt you'll regret the purchase. A comment I made on the A88X-PRO after I bought it (back when it was $130) was that the board was of such high quality that AMD needed to make a CPU worthy of being run in it. The Crossblade Ranger comes with the same build quality and also has a much better onboard sound section, the ROG design scheme, an Intel LAN controller that's supposed to be better than the A88X's Realtek, and the ROG BIOS.

I haven't seen any complaints about either one of those boards from anyone who knew what they were doing. As far as keeping the chip, I'll keep the 860K until Zen comes out unless the Kaveri Refresh Athlon is a killer OC'er, and if so, I'll give the 860K to a friend who's running a 6400K right now.

All the leaked/rumored Godavar APU/CPUs seem a bit boring kind of like how Broadwell is seeming boring compared to Haswell. Both Broadwell for LGA and Godavari just seem like a placeholder for people looking for new hardware. Their real goal and punch seems to be Skylake and Zen.
I don't believe those specs that have been supposedly "leaked" for a second. They make no sense. There's no reason why AMD would release a refresh of an existing CPU design at clock rates lower than the original release. The 870K is supposedly a 3.5 base/3.7 turbo chip, while the 860K is a 3.7/4.0. If that's true, no one will buy it unless it's a preposterously good OC chip, and if it is, AMD would be stupid not to sell it at a higher clock.

I love my A88X-Pro, it's the best board I've ever had by a mile. Solid as a rock and equal in capability to anything else in FM2+. The main reason it doesn't get mentioned so often, apart from price, is that supplies of it were so patchy in the first months of FM2+. Nowadays you can find it at a price which should make it the first choice for anyone with an APU - from Trinity onwards.

If it can't hit 5GHz I wont be interested. I have the 5GHz bug now.

For me the Crossblade was simply cheaper by a couple of euros , currently got my 860k running on 4.2 ghz , didnt get higher stable yet on the stock cooler.

I agree with Yoo. With Direct X 12 and how it handles multi threading, I wonder how the Athlon series will fare paired with high end GPU. Makes me wonder if going for the FX series was a wiser choice for future proof wise
