Gigabyte 870A-UD3 vs MSI 890FXA-GD70, Need advice

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I'm a too much confused about some matter.

Now, I've the Gigabyte 870A-UD3, I want to buy it and get the MSI 890FXA-GD70.

The only thing that I care is CF and power, Is there a huge difference ? or I shall still with my Gigabyte MOBO ?

The PC will be built for GAMING.

Thanks,

I dont quite understand your post. However, the GD70 is awesome, it has my vote, have nothing to say about the gigabyte as i've never used it. Also feel free to ask more questions and use the search function to see if other people have asked the same question as you.

Peace ^^

Yes, I already searched for posts but never find an answer, My question in simple is:

I'm interested in CF ? Will gigabyte satisfy my use or I shall get the MSI ?

Note: Gigabyte is 8+2 power phase but the MSI is 4+1.

sry for my bad english :$

VRM-wise 890FXA-GD70 would be a downgrade; if your chip requires more than 1.5V at whatever overclock, don't get the 890FXA.
You may want to consider 890FXA-GD65 though, it apparently has 8+2 power phase!?

i have had 0 problems with my gigabyte 870a-ud3 you might want to get a mst-88 from enzotech thought to cover the mosfets its like 14$ from newegg it is also if you like nvidia sli hackable

the 890FXA-GD70 would be a massive down grade in terms of voltage regulation, as it is based off probably one of the worst 4+1 designs i have seen in a long time.

However as xd said, the 890FXA-GD65 uses a much better VRM system.
