I am trying to pair with AMD FX-8320 Vishera 8 core http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113285

 I can't figure what a great motherboard would be to pair it with. If someone could give some suggestions, I need it to be one of the following sizes to fit into the tower I plan to use. I would like it to have usb3.0 and  PCIe 2.0 x16 on it. Any help would be greatly welcomed. I run windows 10 pro version. 8 gigs of Ripjaw RAM  Radeon 250x 2g Thank you in advance.

  • HPTX: 13.6in. x 15in

There are two main AMD chipsets you can pair that CPU with, depending on your use case.


AMD 970 - A basic, core set of features in which all of the 900-series of AMD chipsets have.  These may be able to do Crossfire and/or SLI, but generally isn't recommended.


ASUS M5A97 R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970



AMD 990FX - Expands on the 970 chipset with additional functionality aimed at enthusiasts, including SLI and Crossfire support.


ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX  (This is the motherboard I use with an FX-8350, but mine is a 1.0 SABERTOOTH)

GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD5 R5 (rev. 1.0) AM3+ AMD 990FX
