good mobo for fx 6300 or 8350

What's the best mobo for overclocking the fx 6300 or possibly the 8350 but not too expensive (~100€)?

Which one from these:

Also do you think spending 80€ more on 8350 is worth it? Because I've seen some gaming benchmarks and they are very close.

And it is only for gaming (no rendering, no streaming)


Thanks.

    AsRock 990FX Extreme 4 and go ahead with the FX 6300 unless you are getting something better than a GTX 760

  4. I like my 8350 a lot, so I would tell you it's worth the extra money. Right now they are close, but later on, as core count becomes more important, the 8350 will serve you better.

    A 970 based board from either ASUS or Gigabyte, since right now they are the two top manufacturers (with ASUS slightly ahead of Gigabyte). Since you want to keep the cost around 100€, a 990 based board will probably be out of your price range, but they are for overclocking so it will depend on what you are looking to do.

    Gigabyte 990XA-UD3, 8+2 phases power design that can house even upcoming FX9000 without any problems. If getting 8350 costs 80 EUR more then just don't, the fx6300 would be the better choice.

    Actually I am getting a gtx760 so the 6300 it is.
    That mobo is a bit out of budget? Maybe extreme3?

    Ok thanks.

    To all:
    So now it is between Asrock 990FX Extreme3 AMD990FX SKAM3+ and Gigabyte 990XA-UD3 AMD 990X SKAM3+.

    They're practically the same price so which one should I buy?
  7. I prefer the Asrock , but that's my opinion.

    Filled in the missing info. I don't like people who claim "A is better than B" without any particular reasons.

    Asrock, because I trust their brand name better and it is slightly smaller while having close to the same specs. It was my own reasoning that I felt wasn't important.
  12. Far from "close to the same specs" my friend. Far from. When it comes to OC-ing, 990FX E3 is even worse than 970A-UD3 from Gigabyte.
