Need an am3+ 125w micro atx board with 4 mem slots, SATA 3 and usb 3

Pretty self explanatory post, I need to find a motherboard that fits those requirements. Its sorta puzzling that I can't find any currently as am3+ isn't officially dead. and the FX series is pretty popular. I was able to find a single old motherboard that isn't made anymore The asrock 880gmh/U3S3 but I was only able to find it in one place online and they cancelled my order after saying they don't really have them. also wtf? why list something you dont really have Best dealz price, Crappy website.Anyway guys if anybody has a mobo that hits this criteria I'd appreciate it again I need the following

am3+
Micro atx
4 dimms
Sata 3 (6Gb/s)
USB 3.0
supports 125w CPU

Thanks anybody who puts time into this.

  1. Sadly no, there arent any AM3+ M-Atx mobos with 4 dimms that can support 125w CPUs, closest in M-atx form factor there is the Asrock 880GM-LE FX, but I wouldnt use that motherboard with a demanding CPU like the 8350 for example. The VRMs are naked without a heatsink for dissipating the heat, and is a somehow shabby-looking mobo. Any other would have to be ATX or bigger.

    its annoying, I was hoping that there was some obscure manufacturer that had an option but I'm less and less optimistic, the only one I've found is that old Asrock. with these options or lack of, it makes the switch to intel seem more likely. how does the 7850k stack up against an 8320 while using a dedicated GPU?(not the built in graphics on the APU)

    If the size of the mobo is keeping you from getting anything better, you should get a case for atx motherboards. The FX + a discrete GPU will perform better than the 7850 + GPU
