Hi I I am looking at the M5A99X EVO R2.0 and the M5A99FX PRO R2.0 and I really dont see many differences other than one having an extra sata port. They are about the same price. If anybody has any input I would be appreciate the help. I just wanna OC the fx-8350 and would like to find out which board is supposed to be better. Or if nothing else just understand better the differences. Thank you.
Ps, i dont care about any other board, these are the only ones that really match my color scheme and budget. Thanks
I have the 99FX Pro R2.0- it's really identical in most every way to the 99X Evo R2.0, except for the ability to run dual graphics cards at 16x on the FX (8x for dual cards on the Evo). Basically, if you are planning on crossfiring a pair of high-end GPU's, it may benefit you to get the FX Pro. I only went with it over the Evo because the Evo R2.0 wasn't in stock, and there is a big improvement in the power phasing from the first generation to the R2.0 boards. Actually, I would have been far better served by the Evo R2.0, as I have a PCI-E wireless card, and the single slot provided on the FX is blocked by a large GPU, while the Evo has a second such slot available.
