Great value FX990 board

Bought this as was building a system on a tight budget but needed something that ran an FX8350 so far it's working like a charm. Yeah sure there are better boards out there for the additional money but if you're like me on a budget you can't go wrong.


price Vs spec

for the price and the spec of the board it does very well.

i have bought one for my server at home (can be for a hoime pc as well) but i have set it up as a barebone and it is brilliant.

i have my 8350 in it and a mild OC of 4.8 and the tremps on the board are brilliant.

the bios is user friendly as well. if you are on a budget this is your board to go too.


Support XMP

The motherboard supports Intel


Great motherboard

Many people complain about the asrock motherboard but once again I'm thrilled. Good price, quality, and easy BIOS to do overclocking.


Throttling issues

I have found after stress testing with prime95 that my FX 6200 cpu is being throttled back to half power very quickly. After asking around it's most likley the Vrm heatsink temps on the board causing this. So if you are looking for a solid OC platform on a budget, there are better boards for similar prices. Otherwise the features are nice and the bundled software pretty user friendly.

Asrock 990FX

Have to agree, this board is great value for money. I have an 8120 overclocked to 3.6ghz and its stable. No USB3 header but then again ive got no USB3 devices so its cool. If your on a tight budget, like me, then you could do alot worser than buy this board. Great service from overclockers too, as usual :)
