  • Looking for a recommended AM3 mobo

    Hello.

    There are tons of motherboards out there nowadays, so I realy could do with some help deciding.

    I am looking for a reliable, feature-full and that has the basis for a good overclock.

    Looking for 890GX or 890FX. 890GX preferably, as it has integrated graphics.

    Thanks,
    Themanhunt

    If your after integrated graphics I can't recommend better than the Asus M4A89GTD/Pro-USB3 - Used to have one until my PSU killed it! Replaced it with a Crosshair IV:

    I gots the Crosshair IV Formula now and thats an ever better board (designed specifically for overclocking if you want to dabble in that) and crossfire (if you want to dabble with that too lol) but lacks the onboard graphics of the above mentioned one

      Ok thanks man. The IV Formula is the most expensive of the ones I had in mind, but also the highest rated. A video card can be added I guess, though I can imagine that my 600 euros is pretty much gone after that lol...

      Any more suggestions/recommendations etc?

        CH4F is just under £170 it sounds reasonable.

            Yes that board did catch my eye. It's just that the board does have some criticism joined with it, like anything I guess.

            Most reviews for Asrock AM3 board say that is has problems with overclocking

                Ok will do. Though what has now caught my eye (again) is the Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H mobo.

                It's comforting knowing that Asrock's parent company is Asus

                  AFAIK Asus and ASRock have been separate for some time now.
