  2. This is a locked cpu right? Always forget this cpu. Thank you very much ,so this cpu will work good with games and r9 390 ?
    I never had ASRock motherboard but i guess it looks good. If you can recommend me another to compare bit more expensive is ok.
  3. Yes it's locked but will pair just fine with the 390.
  4. Great. Is there some other motherboards that are better but with not much higher price than that one? I plan to get this on Christmas so maybe i can spare 30-50 euros more, not sure but would be great if you can give me some advice on that.

    I m moving from AMD to intel so i dont know their lets say budget but solid boards z97 for that cpu

  6. Wow thanks. This is what i wanted! Bit red in it! So both these boards will work fine with that cpu. I like more the Gigabyte. They are equally good?
  7. Both boards Blackbird recommended are very good quailty. Either would be a perfectly good choice, so pick the one you like more. ;)
  8. Thank you very much! :)
