Solved Best AM3 mobo around 150? Tags: Motherboards Gigabyte Product Last response: February 20, 2011 1:23 AM in Motherboards Share hcstnfrd February 14, 2011 10:36:25 PM Hi, been using the Gigabyte 870-UDA3, and for several reasons I just don't like it. The NB is scary as hell, with hardly a heatsink and it's wobbly, no to mention it's HOT HOT HOT I've been looking at Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, etc and am trying to figure out the best for OCing and one with the best options for PCI-e 2.0 Must have USB 3.0 and Sata 6GB/s. Suggestions, anyone? More about : am3 mobo 150 kubiaka February 14, 2011 11:07:04 PM ASUS M4A89TD PRO/USB3 IMO ASUS is the most stable and offers the most features. tecmo34 a c 234 V Motherboard February 14, 2011 11:50:22 PM ASRock 890FX Deluxe3 is the best board at the $150 range... Also, I would look at the ASRock 870 Extreme3 at a $90 price range. It meets all of your needs at a lower budget.

From what I've gained in forums is that the 890FX bridge is better than the GX, correct? tecmo34 a c 234 V Motherboard February 15, 2011 12:07:03 AM FX are better boards more so that they'll do x16,x16 vs x8,x8 and have more features. As for overclocking, the other chipsets are still very capable overclockers compared to the 890FX. hcstnfrd February 15, 2011 1:23:34 AM Thanks tecmo, any more good suggestions for boards? hcstnfrd February 15, 2011 5:26:48 AM A humble bump for a few more suggestions in this price range. ;] Best solution Bigmac80 February 15, 2011 5:16:47 PM Asus is a good company and they make quality boards but i think you can get just as good with MSI or even Gigabyte. In some cases you can get them for a cheaper price also. Even Asrock now is starting to become a very good brand. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... hcstnfrd February 20, 2011 1:23:45 AM Best answer selected by hcstnfrd.
