Last check before give the go ahead on M4A89GTD USB3

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have

phenom II x3 740BE 3.0GHz ->later probably get a x6 1090
Seasonic M12II 520W 80+bronze ->either "green + grey" with a 500W or upgrade
2x2GB gskill DDR3 1600 CL7 soon will have another 4GB
CoolerMaster TX3 92mm ->cheap temporary solution, might try liquid cooling later
Western Digital black cavier 640GB SATA3 (it better work, and not be too loud)


Aside from a new 24" 1920x1080 monitor and 6950 that I will CrossFire, a new MB will complete the build

The M4A89GTD seems like a solid MB


I also gave all my food money to Bronfmann and his government liquor racket....so I'm a good stupid ******

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

I was strongly considering a x16/x16 CF MB until I read a 2010 review with 2 SLi GTX 480s, and x16/x16 vs x8/x8 made absolutely no difference at 2560x1600

They make a difference for the eyefinity type setup, but I'm only planning a single 24" 1920x1080, so a 890GX will suffice.


Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

M4A89GTD USB3 is a great mobo. The only three difference in the M4A89GTD and M4A89TD is the PCI-E (x8/x8 VS. x16/X16), 8+2 power phase and the on-board video.

No they have the same phases. Both have 8+2 or a 10 whatever you wanna call it.
