Best £100 am3+ motherboard?

so bacacly i have £100 to spend on a motherboard, i was looking at the asus sabretooth 990fx but its just a tiny bit too epxencive :(

whats the best i can get, gona be gaming and massive oc's (something like 4.5-5ghz) on my fx 4170


~The main thing i want from it is to be nice and big so that i can install high profile ram (corsair vengeance with the large heat spreaders) and not have any issues with the cm hyper 212 evo clearing the ram.

  1. either of those better than the sabretooth?
  2. No. Sabertooth is a higher spec board than eiter of the two I recommened. I chose the two best boards you could get for your 100 budget.
  3. One more suggestion. If you are looking for massive overclocks, then I really recommend ditching the 100 budget and going for a Gigabyte UD5 motherboard. It has the necessary electronics to asupport large overclocks, but doesn't cost as much as the Sabertooth.

    Here's the board I'd get for around 129:
    GA-990FXA-UD5

  4. im going for the asus m599x evo :) Thanks found it for like £85 so it seems great
