ASRock 970m AM3+ New mATX sheriff in town? - Page 12

post #111 of 116
When I put my GTX970 in the X4 PCI-E I got strange stuttering in games, still 60FPS but it stutter. So I use the X16 to get the real peformance without the stutter.

If that's the case for the 970, I'll probably see the same thing with a 290x. Also, you might laugh at this, but use DSR to increase the resolution and test your 970 on that x4 slot again...

This sounds like a decent, cheap, upgrade from my "refurbished" Biostar A880GZ that I've been running for probably a couple of years with an FX 6300 @4.5GHz! This and a RX 480 or GTX 1060 will make for a great, budget, 1080p gaming machine with a small footprint.

Surprisingly overclocks my phenom II X2 555 to quad core and 3.7Ghz. Took a little more voltage than my old board but the VRMs stayed cool enough in my case that it wasn't a problem.

If you have a 6300 on that Biostar then you must have an excellent chip 😃

YOU shouldn't have a problem with this ASRock then.
