Plus if your looking for a budget system and want half decent sound, then this board's on board sound is really very good, although I already had a creative x-fi titanium card which I salvaged from the old build :) but if your looking to same money by not needing to spend out on a sound card upgrade then this is really nice feature. Plus paired with a brand new fx6300 cpu it only cost £139 in total and for that price is the ultimate budget solution, sure a ryzen 5 is a lot faster, but if like me you just need a dependable work horse and don't need to go overboard on price, this is a brilliant board and amd fx although old still gives great value :) thankyou msi and amd for offering a solution for those of us without too much money to spare :)
The board looks really great to be honest with it's mat black finish and red led highlighting, I used it with an FX8300 that is also low cost and it has worked really well. The motherboard has been rock solid with no crashes at all when used with my windows 10 install. I have not overclocked the motherboard and CPU but I have found it plenty fast enough for my requirements but what really impresses me is how stable this board has been over the last three months. I also have to comment on the sound as it has an on board headphone amplifier that I have found to be exceptional when paired with my AKG headphones, it is really impressive.
This is a great performing motherboard that is very stable and looks really good.
The 970 mobo of course
8350 @ 4.2
R9 280X - Sapphire 3GB
X2 8GB Hyper x's at 1866.
Runs wow on ultra at 60 with no drops under.
GTA5 with all settings maxed except MS at 60.
CS:GO at 180+ (whilst recording)
Metro runs in at 45-70fps on max.
Even Battlefront runs at 60+ consistently.
All in all a brilliant mobo. Great investment for any AM3+ socket.
It can handle much better ram, which I have coming Monday and a bigger power pack, I'd suggest 850w if you're going to drop a bigger card into which I'm doing with a 980ti in January.
