    That ASRock board is awful with the FX8350 (I found out the hard way). Under full load the VRMs overheat even at stock values and throttle the processor. Avoid it or you will be disappointed.

    I say this so anyone researching the board and comes across this post don't waste their time or money.

    I agree, the Asrock is terrible. Can only use 6 cores to be somewhat stable. Using 8 cores crashes and freezes all the time....stay clear
