just noticed I posted a 890fx asrock board pic by accident and noticed how nearly identical this looks to the supposedly 990fx board...this board is either fake or so similar to older gen that if ur older board supports am3+ their is no point upgrading...

I hope the they come at least to LGA1156 performance clock-for-clock but at a better power envelope, high clockability and good prices. That'd be nice if they can dice it up with LGA1155, but... yah, I've just lost confidence over the years.

On a side note: Those ASUS boards could grate some good cheese slivers.

again,if those prices are real an no one screwed up?

then the performance will be good.

for ex...if the fx-4110 were to be slower than the 2500k,the i wouldve expected
the price to be lower as well. a big plus is the ability to overclock,whereas intels non k wont

yup prices seems to be in the same territory than SB parts. If they can compete with it, great, we are in for some price reduction... So My MATX build will have to wait !
