Hi,

For my AMD FX-8120 processor, is ASRock 970 Extreme3 Motherboard a good motherboard. I presently have an ASUS M5A88-M ASUS Motherboard but the ASRock 970 Extreme3 Motherboard has a better chipset and supports more RAM capacity.

Is ASRock's ASRock 970 Extreme3 Motherboard a good buy and has it got good reviews in hardware forums?

Please revert as soon as possible.

Thanks and Regards,
Sriram.

Memory support is inetersting. But I highly recommend to use motherboard with AMD 990FX chipset for Your CPU.

The reviews aren't too bad:

However, I would recommend this one:

I have had it for a few months now and love it. It is easy to configure and I have not had a lick of issues with it and it also supports 32Gig of memory.

There is a price difference but you get what you pay for.

Plus its reviews are better.
