Critique my new build - Page 3

post #21 of 22
Don't go with the ASRock 870 for a few reasons:
1. 4+1 power phase. Even heatsinked, not very optimal for a 125W processor esp. for overclocking (moderate overclocks only)
2. I find the $9 more worth it for the GA-870A-UD3 over ASRock 870.
3. For $96.24, $81.24 AR (lower price after rebate) M4A79XTD EVO is a good choice, though it does not have USB3 and SATA3 it may be the best choice for expansion (i.e. CFX/SLI)

agree , if you wanna cheap out on a mobo which doesnt have at least 8+2 power phase then u can buy a 30-40 bucks mobo , effect is same u wont be able to overclock much
