Will a AMD FX8350 work with a ASrock 990fx extreme3 out of the box.

I'm not sure if the mobo needs a bios update to be able to work with the FX-8350. If so can you please tell me how?

  1. Yes, it will, no problem.
  2. Best answer
    Actually, from what I gather something has changed and AsRock has since removed the FX 8320 and 8350 from their support list.

    http://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/990FX%20Extreme3/?cat=CPU
  3. Asrock has removed the FX8320 and 8350 from the list because of thermal and stability issues.

    It's not compatible ASrock 990fx extreme3.
  4. i dont know if anyone has looked but it is still on their supported list i have just brought one and i am looking at getting an 8350 for it as an upgrade from the 955 phennom ii
  5. It's back on the list since the newer Bios , but stability will still be an issue due to it's poor power and thermal design.

    Not a good match for 8320 or 8350 , FX 6300 IS FINE WITH IT.
  6. what about the 8150 any good?
  7. I WOULDN'T run any 8 cores on that board.
  8. thats a shame. do you know anything about the thermal issues they have been having as atm im the king of keeping things cool with extreme messures as i hve thermal issues with my current system as im running sli i can tell you that my case sounds like it will take off
  9. My mate has an FX-8350 @4.0ghz on the Extreme3 and it works fine. He has previously run prime for 12hrs no problem. And it worked Out Of The Box.
  10. I installed this combination( without reading this site) and the CPU fan whistled like there was no tomorrow.....temps got up to 68"C at some stages and when I went through the settings HT ratio was at 19 !!! as default !! I dropped it down to 11 and it runs very nicely now.
  11. I have just bought this Motherboard as an upgrade to my old ASRock M3A790GMH.128M but for the time being I am not buying a CPU and will install my existing AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE,
    I upgraded purely for the SATA3 and USB3, also will upgrade to a newer FX CPU in the future.
    If you read in the compatibility site of ASRock it does mention that * For cooling the CPU and its surrounding components, please install a CPU cooler with a top-down blowing design.
