Hey guys,
Having difficulty in selecting the best mobo for the CPU. What could you recommend? Looking at ~R1800 max.
Want for good overclocking, gaming. I will be running XFire soon. Also future proof.
Thinking of the MSI 890FXA-GD70

Anything that runs a 890GX or FX chipset. GX does x8/x8 while FX does x16/x16, FX is also more expensive, trying looking at a gigabyte 890gx board

I personaly would go with the AsRock 890FX Deluxe 3 since it has many great features like UCC and a great price.

I've ordered the MSI 890FXA-GD70 : http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=pr...=&prod_no=2025
I'm also getting the OCZ Reaper 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600.
Will this be suitable? I know the Mobo supports the RAM but its says (OC) • Supports four unbuffered DIMM of 1.5 Volt DDR3 800/1066/1333/1600*/1800*/2133* (OC) DRAM, 16GB Max
Or
should I just settle for 1333Mhz?

Thanks!
Ok, check this link: http://www.msi.com/uploads/test_report/TR10_2025.pdf
Tests where run on the following 2GB modules.
DDR III 1600 OC
Winchip GDF2GB18L125C9 2GB V OK
G.SKILL F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM 2GB V OK
Kingston KHX1600C9D3LK2/4GX 2GB V OK

I think the OCZ will be safe and not land into any problems.

What it means is that the speed specified as OC isn't officially supported by the memory controller, but it has been tested by the mobo manufacturer and works fine regardless basically, my understanding is that, if you put 1600 in a MB that supports 1600(OC)/1333, the 1600 sticks you put in will default to 1333, and run at 1333. However, you can go into your BIOS and change the settings to get the memory to clock at 1600 - which is its potential. But other than that, the 1600 will just be read by the BIOS and MB as 1333, so you are fine, there shouldn't be any real problem.

These are not my original thoughts so you can take a look here
