New PC Build. I was going to go with the Asus M5A97 EVO R2.0 as I was going to overclock the FX 6300 to about 4.2ghz but found the Asrock and it has a 990fx north chipset. Would it make a big difference? It's only a bit more money.......


XFX 650w
Corsair XMS3 4gb
AMD FX 6300


Thanks

Best solution

For future upgrades Asus would be better because Extreme3 doesn't support 8320~8350 CPU's due to thermal issues!
And try to get M5A97 Pro R2.0.

Is the Pro better than the Evo? If so, how is it better?

So think about M5A97 EVO R2.0 because ASRock doesn't support FX-8230 and FX-8350 CPU's
