    i'm looking for a new Asus motherboard socket AM3 ideally with 4+ 3pin fan connections and more than 4 sata ports and 4 ram dimms (not two) for roughly £40-£100

    if asus don't have any good ones i might go the gigabyte route

    does anyone have any good boards that qualify??

    thanks

    Its me again
    All the new boards will usually have 6 sata connections i would recommend a Msi c-45 or G-45 retailing at about 40 pound on the high end you can get an Asus M4A89GTD PRO/USB 3 at 115 pounds

    The C45 is the slightly cheaper one with red pcb, where as the G45 has crossfire and is blue and black, the one with heatsinks and dr.mos is the much more expensive ASUS board

    It's just there take on power management, I think its EPU on Asus boards. Just saves power mostly, very little difference, double so if your overclocking.

    go for the am3 socket,am3 socket supports ddr3 ram and is more future proof, you can post a link so i check if you want
