For those who're interested there's already a thread going that mr squishy mentioned: http://www.overclock.net/t/1545327/asrock-970m-am3-new-matx-sheriff-in-town

I've been having a few issues with mine (it REALLY needs active VRM cooling) but overall for the price it's much better than any other AM3+ mATX board out there.
I Like AMD Too!

cool but its just a few years too late. AM3+ is dying

ITX is even less probable, typical AM3+ is 125w which is almost as much as 2011-3.

What would be the cheapest but reasonable cpu model to install in this?
It would be to upgrade somebody from 32bit XP-2500+ hardware.
