    Cool Best Motherboard for 8 Core AMD CPU

    I was looking at MATX motherboards but they seemed a little wimpy for this CPU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819113284 I can fit a full ATX in my CM HAF XB.

    What do you all suggest???

    yes with the 125w cpu, you need to check the cpu compatibility list for the board.

    were you looking at micro boards with the intent of using the onboard video?

    No, I was not going to use the onboard video, I just like the smaller MB, as I'm not going to run more than one GF670, a regular size ATX motherboard is over kill.

    My Intel system uses the Asus Rampage IV motherboard, which I like a lot and I was looking for an AMD equivalent.

    Asrock Fatality, I got one last year for my thuban after I fried a Gigabyte 970 UD3 (boy was I disappointed in it, the VRM even cought fire literally.... good thing I was awake when it happened). This thing pwnz. 12+2 power design. Its meant for FX series. Check it out, its cheaper then a sabertooth and better, might not get as high fsb but in other areas it blows it away.

    the type of micro board you were expecting to see are probably made in the fm2 chipsets these days.

    So, the FM2 motherboards can't help me with an 8 core CPU

    8 cores are socket AM3+

    FM2 is meant for trinity series which are not high end and meant more for home/office/HTPC rigs and the socket is different.

    I have this: ASUS M5A88-M AM3+ AMD 880G with my 1055t, and it has worked really well for me. Not sure if it is still available, but I just got it last fall.
