I have the 890fx version of it (boards are basically the same) and its great.
i think you sent me a dead link.

yeah sorry hahah its a good thing iam posting because i really want to make this right and get a good board that works for my plans. thats why iam open to get an ASUS or another brand if its better for the purposes i want it too.


the big problem iam having is finding a micro ATX board with mosfet coolers, i have only found Full ATX's with them
the only one i found has been this MSI? should i go for it? whats weird is i don't see a CPU 4 pin or a CPU 8 pin on that thing.... this motherboard is so weird.... is it better to go with a 4 or 8 pin CPU plug but no mosfets? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130269
i rather have ASUS or Gigabyte or ASRock.. but i don't think any of them have a micro ATX version with mosfet coolers

EDIT: ok after more research that MSI is the ONLY micro ATX with those mosfet heatsinks, and looking at the Newegg feedback it has prety terrible reviews...

so after rethinking it thru... i think i will get that ASRock instead. unless theres something that ASUS or gigabyte can do that the ASRock cannot.

if i went ahead and did Full ATX, how about this one? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813157200 still ASRock but its full ATX and it looks like it has those mosfet things on it

update:
well... i waited too long and now all the stuff i had in my wish list doesn't have the "Savings" thing on it anymore and my PC actually costs 75bux more then it would if i ordered it yesterday =(

but this is good, because I planned on getting a micro ATX and i changed to a full ATX and it made me change cases as well... so everything was super last minute plans and it wasn't something I was planning on.

so i guess i'll order my PC the next time i can gather a bunch of parts from that website with the "savings" and such on there with free shipping.


Thanks again for all your help, I am going to rethink about my PC build and most likely not go to water cooling, because all the recent reviews on my water cooling parts also received super bad reviews recently with compatibility on AMD motherboards, and that the water cooling system I wanted were more designed for Intel (The new Coolit Eco series)


i hate to do it... but after a few more hours of research I think i might end up going back to air cooling and that way I could just get a non-mosfet cooling motherboard.

It's a tough choice, for sure.

For one thing, MicroATX boards are usually only going to have 4 phase power delivery. Most will not have 8-pin connectors, and most will not have heatsinked voltage reulgators.

However, provided you have a decent power supply, a 4-pin is 99% of the time perfectly suited for big overclocks. I'd personally go with the MSI board. I don't know how many power phases are on the CPU but it sure looks to be more than 4. Possibly not...but it looks laid out in that manner.

The MSI is a bit pricey, but it's definitley worth it.
