  1. Technically this is one of the cheapest boards for the FX-8350, you will need to update the bios to the latest one to support the FX-8350. Also it's not the best overclocker.

    If you are not overclocking and can update the bios then this works fine:

    This board also requires a bios update but should be better at overclocking:

  2. tnx alot, with the asrock u think after bios update the cpu will run fine with the mobo?
    olso what is the difrence with 990 fx chipsets i will downgrade my performance alot with the cheap mobos?
  3. The Asrock will work fine with the bios upgrade. Anyways can't you just use the 990fx board on the FX-8350? I thought this was a new build....your existing motherboard should work

    As for differences, I personally don't know but after doing some looking around I guess the main difference is the crossfiring capabilities / SLI capabilities.

    I could be wrong though since I don't own either chipset, in fact I'm still at the 760G chipset :)

    OLD IS GOLD :lol:
  4. tnx for the lelp m8, no i dont own 990 fx board, just after some research i find out that
    the vishera cpus performs better with the 990 chipsets boards, in fact i read somewhere that 8350 users and 990 boards are one way even you like it or not..
    dunno if all that is true ofc
  5. please dont get a cheap board you will be disappointed. You really want a board with good chipset coolers on them and a high flow case but it depends what you plan on doing.
    sli/crossfire?

    here is the main difference

    990FX: AMD's enthusiast line is, as displayed in the table, primarily advantageous for its added PCI-e lanes and bulked-up multi-GPU support, allowing up to four GPUs (x16/x16, x8/x8/x8/x8). Additionally, the 990FX's TDP is calculated at 19.6W, certainly making it undesirable for low-spec systems, like HTPCs. The 990FX uses the SB950 southbridge and has a total of 42PCI-e 2.x lanes.

    990X: In the performance section, which is probably what most of our regular system builders should consider, the 990X is equipped to handle x8/x8 graphics arrays, operates at 14W TDP. The 990X also uses the SB950 southbridge and has a total of 26PCI-e 2.x lanes.

    970: This is certainly the 'mainstream' chip. With no support for Crossfire/SLI and only 26PCI-e 2.x lanes, the 970 is best-known for its low-TDP (13.6W) and cheap buying options. The 970 uses SB950 and SB920.
  6. you can buy my ASUS M5A97 :) i know this thing is a beast for overclocking,i have my 6100 at 4.7ghz 24/7 stable but im upgrading to intel :) ill sell it for $70 bucks

    I know this is off topic but could you post your overclock settings I need a good baseline

    i think the 970 extreme 3 support crossfire and sli, but yea the 990 chipset is much superior but i have limited bugdet
  9. I'd look on new egg I had a tight budget when I sold my laptop and managed to find some good daily deals on 990 boards
  10. Well if you want a 990 fx board and are on a budget then consider this one:
