Upvote UD3P rev 2.x
post #42 of 54
Like The Stilt and Undervolter said. If you don't get a good board getting the 8300 would be pointless. Spending a few extra dollars on a good motherboard is paramount if you want a good experience with FX cpu. Even the four core variants imho.

Yeah thanks to his suggestion I'm going to get this one

The UD3P is better (8+2 phase), but if you can't afford it, for 4Ghz, the D3P should do.

970A-D3P will handle up to 4.4GHz, depending on the quality of your CPU and the level of case ventilation. It has a native 4+1 phase, digital VRM with relatively high quality components in it. Basically it is the same exact VRM as on 970A-UD3P, but the phases just haven't been doubled on D3P.

The Stilt, what kind of advantage would the "doubled" have over the straight 4+1? Can you give an explanation exactly what "doubling" is in layman's terms? Thanks.

Can you afford this board? It seems to be an epic one for the price.

Here in China they're about 130 USD.
