What motherboard should I choose?

When people looked at my FM2 Motherboard, people were yelling at me for choosing an MSI board.

Then, I picked an ASRock Pro 4 , and people said the board didn't support 2400 MHz RAM out of the box, when the description said 2600 MHz was when OC'ing was necessary

So, I guess I need a new FM2 board choice.

What I need-


Support for 2133/2400 MHz RAM


USB 3.0

What I would like-

4 DIMM slots

Under $75


Thanks for the help.




Anyone here?

I will accept your challege! give me like ten minutes


I think i got it... Its this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813135330R

Its an ecs board that cost 72.99 with 4 ram ports. supports both 2133 and 2400 (OC) and can OC a processor. Its also sata 3 and usb 3. Only problem is its open box.

My issues are

-I've never heard of ECS

-I need it in MicroATX

ECS is a great brand. You probably haven't heard of it because it is mainly on newegg. I haven't been able to find many anywhere else. I think this is you best bet. theres the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131880 but that doesn't support 2133 or 2400 ram

How about http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128652

or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157462

id say wait a week and u will see a price drop on some of these as well as alot of the fm2+ mobos coming out with kaveri.

Thanks for the tip.

Most likely, I have to wait for my spare cash for my PC

I like the looks of the new MSI gaming ones as they have the killer nic and from what im told decent integrated sound. Gigabytes sniper boards look good too but I'm not particularly fond so i would not go that route its worth a try if you don't mind them..
