ECS A890GXM-A @ Neoseeker

“At $105, it might seem interesting to grab it, however this special price is temporary. It will soon be back at is original price of $120. For a mere $10 more, one can grab a mATX MSI 890GXM-G65, which features USB 3.0, has the ability to unlock deactivated cores in AM3 processors, and promises a much better HT link reference clock generator.”

H55 & H57 Motherboard Roundup

H55 & H57 Motherboard Roundup @ OC Club

“With very little separating the H55 and H57 chipsets it is hard to recommend one of these products over another. All come packed with good performance, plenty of features and a price that reflects their positioning in the market. So ultimately it comes down to your specific needs and budget.”

“EVGA Classified SR-2 (the “SR” on the name stands for “Super Record”) is an enormous dual socket 1366 motherboard based on Intel 5520 chipset with seven PCI Express x16 for you to build the fastest gaming PC in the world.”


ASUS M4A89GTD Pro/USB3 @ iXBT Labs

“We reviewed a lot of motherboards based on the AMD 890GX chipset. Most were original, for example, MSI 890GXM-G65 was one of the most feature-rich mATX boards available, ECS A890GXM-A offered most peripheral functionality, finally, Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H provided the most convenient way to build a CrossFire rig. Now let’s see what ASUS M4A89GTD Pro/USB3 can offer.”

ASUS P6X58D-E Xtreme

ASUS P6X58D-E Xtreme @ Benchmark Reviews

“ASUS has already earned our praise for their ASUS P6X58D-Premium motherboard. As the name implies, this exceptional X58-Express motherboard comes loaded with everything that could fit the circuit board… and a premium price to match. The ASUS P6X58D-E motherboard is exactly what enthusiasts want: more for less.”

EVGA P55 Classified

EVGA P55 Classified @

“EVGA has taken all of the best features of the P55 chipset and improved it for the ultimate tweaker. The P55 Classified 200 motherboard has six PCIE slots, which supports 3-way SLI with PhysX or CrossfireX and the addition of the NF200 bridge chip splits the bandwidth effectively among video cards.”

ASRock 890FX Extreme3

ASRock 890FX Extreme3 @ PureOC

“Today we’re looking at ASRock’s foray into the high-end AMD market with their premium AM3 board, the 890FX Deluxe3. This board aims to bring some premium features at a budget price to the Phenom faithful. We’ve seen a couple impressive AM3 motherboards of late, so let’s take a closer look at this new ASRock board and see just what it can do when we drop in a flagship hex-core 1090T Black Edition chip.”

Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD6 & GA-P55A-UD7

Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD6 & GA-P55A-UD7 @ X-Bit Labs

“These two top-of-the-line models won’t cause any problems during system assembly and operation in nominal mode; they will allow you to easily overclock your system due to extensive BIOS functionality. Both of them have a lot of additional onboard controllers, including the today’s acute SATA 6Gbps and USB 3.0. Each of the two mainboards has its unique distinguishing features and its unique shortcomings.”

Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H

Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H @ iXBT Labs

“GA-890GPA-UD3H is a decent motherboard, but, frankly speaking, Gigabyte has somewhat spoilt us by previous bestsellers based on AMD integrated chipsets. Anyway, the motherboard will surely be in demand. At least because of its excellent overclocking potential and the convenient layout of graphics slots.”

Foxconn H55MX-S

Foxconn H55MX-S @ TweakTown

“Foxconn is not a new comer to the TweakTown labs, but it is a rarity to have the products up on the bench. After our testing with the 890GX based A9DA-S, we wanted to see more. In response to our request Foxconn sent along their entry level H55MX-S motherboard.”
