Look at this thread: http://www.overclock.net/amd-cpus/94...y-usually.html
Then this list of motherboards: http://www.overclock.net/amd-motherb...hase-list.html
The one he has selected looks fine....
Well I built a system with $40 after MIR biostar mobo for about 1 and 1/2 year now with phenom 9850 @ 2.8ghz and gave it to my friend, he's been running fine so far so i think it just depends on the brand and VRMs quality no?

yes you are correct but it sounds like u are saying any $40 motherboard is fine. Sorry, didn't mean to sound heavy handed there....

so your saying the GA-890FXA-UD5 is fine? o.0 im confused
Now i'm confused, i thought u were getting the combo deal with the
GIGABYTE GA-870A-UD3 and 955BE cpu?
The GA-890FXA-UD5 is an excellent board.... either one would be fine. Sorry for the confusion

EDIT: Don't get the one i got! Mine was free in a combo deal at frys and i didnt' realize how bad it was, until i read the article by XD and Reflex (thanks guys!)

I thought from your original cart you picked 955? I mean the combo would save you a couple bucks and you can always overclock it to the 965's speed

Oh i'm just saying that i thought you said you were getting the 870 board, the 890FX is better IMHO. And 965 or 955... you can't go wrong with either one....

Ya, there's no point in getting a 965 over a 955. Go into the BIOS, change the multiplier from x16 to x17, and bam, you get a 965.

Save yourself the green and just buy a 955. They OC just as well. Also, I can't believe anyone hasn't said anything about that cooler... great for it's time, but it is the Hyper 212+'s day now.
