This one is great but how about this link.... please check and help me between these two MOBO because I think ASUS is a bit costlier than ASROCK. However , I don't have much knowledge about MOBO and PC hardware , so I will go with your final opinion.

Yes, it will work on both. The ASUS one is definately better. I had a lot of issues with my ASRock mobo, and from what my friends tell me and reviews, ASUS makes the best products. This mobo is literally the best AM3+ socket mobo you can get!

Yes.... I will agree with you. I just read a few articles about ASRock mobo 3.0 ports. They actually didn't work at all. It had to be updated kind of something...... So ASUS is ON !!!
Will the USB 3.0 work properly or I will have to download the drivers or update the BIOS or something like that ???

After u build ur pc and have finished installing OS, you log in and the first thing you should do is insert your Motherboard Driver CD that came with ur mobo. Without installing that u wont be able to use internet. So after u do that you can download ur latest drivers and stuff :)

Yes it will work! However, if your looking to just overclock your CPU, and that Multi-GPU & O.C. DRAM is not important, then ASRock is way to go! 1-2way SLI at 16x/8x!
However if 3-way SLI/X is important, & upto 32GB & upto 2400Mhz DRAM, the ASUS Crosshair V Formula Z is the board of boards!!! If RAM isn't a focus either but GPU is, then I recommend ASUS Sabretooth FX990! Hands down! No further questions. lol both will handle the FX-8350, I have had the CPU chip for quit sometime & have since upgraded to the 9590! My only caution & recommendation is going for ASUS MoBo & a 1000w PSU minimum of 80+ Silver for safe overclocking, & a well ventilated case to protect your investment

As far as i can tell it should. Both have the AM3+ chipset and the ASUS mobo supports them. I want to buy the fx9590 aswell but there is a big hole in my pocket :)

IM JUST SAYIN, I have the ASROCK mobo extreme 9, and I have had nothing but problems with the USB 3.0. They DONT work!!
So I spent $170 dollars on a brand new mobo, and it will not work with my ext usb 3.0 hdd??? Thats bull, I was gonna let it go, cause it is not THAT big of a deal, the usb 2.0 works, but it just kept EATING at me, so I have decided to go with the ASUS formula-z, I know its more expensive, and I will be losing money when I re-sell the ASROCK board, but I dont care.
Ive already got enough of my hard earned money into this computer for it not to work PERFECTLY...Am I right:??

Now with that said, the ASROCK board works fine, The UEFI only has a dropdown menu for overclocking, so you cant fine tune it.
But it does overclock well, I have my 8350 running at 4.7 and I havent even touched the stock voltage.

Again IM JUST SAYIN.
