Best AM3 Matx board

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
So here I am, moving from full tower to Micro atx!! I want a board thats gonna have some future proof to it, run my 6870, 8gigs DDR3 and possibly a 6core.
I read these boards will also support Bulldozer? I have been out of the loop for a bit since my last build, but this is the board im looking into.

I LOVED my sig rig Mobo,
so does anyone have any suggestions?

My mobo with ram sinks on the mosfets is a crazy board.
I could've gotten the biostar, but I like Gigabyte boards more.

You know I was heading the same direction a few weeks ago, but after such a long debate, I've decided that MicroATX + Overclocking + SixCore = Kaboom in my face_

It sucked, since I really loved the idea of having a mini-size computer with kickass power!, I do believe you can get away with a mild overclock probably 3.8ghz or so but 4.0ghz might be pushing it a little much when it comes to microAtx

Well, my conclusion through a lot of research was the best boards to play with would be 1.Biostar TA890GXERCH, 2.MSi 890GXM 3.GIGABYTE GA-880GM w/Custom Mosfet Cooling_ that was my conclusion after doing massive review readings and such_

Hopefully that will help you narrow down your search

I had not planned on OC, and since I dont do much with my PC these days I probably will just end up getting a 955BE

Im leaning towards the Biostar board simply because of the colors atm...

I have the non Crossfire version of this board and can tell you that I am very happy with it, excellent overclocker. My x2 565 BE is sitting @ 4ghz stable in my HTPC with the 2 extra cores unlocked, now loading @ 50c on a custom h50 setup paired with my 6870 this HTPC screams. I wouldnt buy a board counting on it to support bulldozer.
FTW!!
