Best 790FX mobo?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I decided i'm going to support the reds all out and will be selling my nvidia mobo and 8800GT to get a 790FX + HD3870x2 and a phenom when they come out later on!

However I was wondering what the best 790FX (or lets say value for money) board is.

Initially i was between MSI and ASUS.
The two mobos i was consdiering were :

Asus M3A32-MVP Deluxe/Wi-Fi
and
MSI K9A2 Platinum

Ofcourse the non wifi version of the ASUS board is kindly looked upon if by the time i order the wi-fi one is out of special offer M3A32-MVP Deluxe

Other mobo brands can be suggested aswell, as i can bring them from USA (my bud brings them for his computer store if need be) so suggest away

A plus i give to ASUS is the layout of the SATA... On the side! Helps with the damn wire management, where as the MSI ones just clutter the place (and i use all 6 ^^)

I'm running a Asus M3A32-MVP MB and love it. Have had no problems out of it and its very forgiving to my overclocking. I have had my 6000+ up to 3.509stable and it run great. The memory heatpipe seems to do a great job, but I still have a 90mm Delta fan blowing across the heatsinks.

Do you have the normal edition or the Wi-fi one? As far as i can notice (or i might be blind ) the wi-fi edition has the ram heatpipes aswell

I had both of these boards. I RMA'd the MSI K9A2 Platinum (too many issues to count) and bought the ASUS M3A32- MVP Deluxe AM2+ with a 9600 BE processor and I love it. It is head over heals a better board than the MSI. The MSI is so bad that Newegg gave me my Money back on the board.
