Refunding my board.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I'm going to refund my ASUS board, and was going to purchase another to replace the bad one. Well according to the egg that board is out of stock. Is there a good comparable board at that price range? I spent about $80 on it. Was wondering what you guys would recommend as a good board that would replace this one. I'm willing to fluctuate on the price a little bit more or even less. Just needs to be AM3 and DDR3 1600mhz compatible.

I don't even care if it's X-fire or not. I would prefer it to be a decent board to overclock with as well.

Sheesh! Any recommendations on which one would be particularly better than the rest?

I personally would chose an ASRock board over the others but it's more of a layout thing rather than OCability. And how they have a Clear CMOS button at the back of the board for the I/O area.

But I'm sure all of them have similar capabilities when overclocking.

Care to elaborate? I was just getting ready to post the 3 that seemed good to me from reviews. That Msi board was one of them.

EDIT: I'm going with the ASRock 870 Seems like a killer mobo.

MSI has that bad reputation for VRMs that catch on fire.

Like the other guy said, the MSI boards have a tendency to catch fire, except the 870a Fusion Power Edition board. That's a pretty solid board.

The 870 Extreme 3 should be able to handle a mild overclock, but don't push it with the 4 phases unless you have active cooling.

Don't pair the MSI board with 125W CPUs (unless getting 890FXA-GD65 or 870A Fuzion Power Edition)
