So today i present you my present time system, 1 month old.
After some 1150 system, 1 month ago i switched to another platform composed esentially from:
Asrock 990FX Extreme9 Motheboard 180$.
Cpu: FX 8300, 120$
Coole: AIO Raijintek Triton 100$
PSU: Cougar GX 800.
Case : Corsair 400R.
VGA : GigabyteGTX 750Ti





Only the motheboard, cpu and cooler are new, the rest are old.
Reason to chose it, the combination of a top high end motheboard and a very good cpu at 300$ was a wonder .
On Intel i would have to pay 400$ for i5 4690k with a much weaker motheboard.
In fact with 400$ i bough motheboard, cpu and a very good AIO cooler to overclock them like hell.
Now why i chose Asrock 990FX Extreme9:

Because it's the top of AMD AM3+ motheboards. It's released not so long ago, so a motheboard very compatible with the latest AMD processors.
It's has a very strong VRM: Advanced 12 + 2 Power Phase Design
- Dual-Stack MOSFET (DSM).
It has 8 SATA3 ports.
Because supports 3SLI 16/X8/X8 something which on budget Intel platform 1150/1155 almost doesn't exits.
Also i like the look of the radiator on VRM,NB and the look of the motheboard in general.


So what came from this combination???
Some madness as always with Asrock       

4800Mhz 24/7 stable configuration posible.
And some 5100Mhz Cinebench 8.81points.
Thanks to both motheboard and processor.





So thank you very much Asrock again for a wonderful job on this motheboard!

PS: Sorry for my dust in case, i have to clean it up these days...

ASRock mobo to me seem to be quality boards (I'm using the 990FX Extreme3 with FX-4100 CPU) Overclock is amazing with these boards, I managed to get aircooled 4.7GHz on Linux and 4.2GHz (BSoD if any higher) from my 3.4GHz without struggle for the board. Using it with a 5850 FX and 6 HDDs (external raid card due to SATA port locations)
