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?

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:

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

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.

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

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
