Looking for a new AMD mobo

I am looking for an AM3+, ATX, AMD motherboard for under $200. I will be using an AMD FX-8320 Processor. The build I am upgrading with this is used primarily for gaming.

Gigabyte makes good quality motherboards. Physically. The BIOSes aren't good though. They lag and look like 4 year olds designed them.

What processor did you overclock and to what speed?

 

Not my build. I made it for my associate and a friend. Got it to 4.6 with a 6300 and a 4.7 with an 8320. I could push more but they didn't need so much.

Was it watercooled for the 8320?

please do not compare this to mean the giggy is more powerful than the asus.

i believe the giggy uses 20amp phase vs asus 30amp phase. so in comparing

the giggy 200amp of current phase vs. the asus at 240amp. so you can be

buying worse if following more phase is better.

totally agree with this statement. and since the P67 days has never really caught up

with asus' UEFI platform. so for really handling of overclocking the asus is far better.

How about reading off numbers from the Sin's VRM List?

also for unlisted motherboards,how do we figure out the quality of phases?
