GIGABYTE GA-880GMA-USB3 AM3+ AMD 880G 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggs Works with 2014 FX Processors 12/07/2014

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-880GMA-USB3 AM3+ AMD 880G 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Solid motherboard for over 3 years. Reason for this review is that it works with new 8-core FX-8320e processors.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Server was shut down, old processor removed, new processor (FX-8320e) installed, and powered on. The entire procedure took about 5 minutes, and I didn't even have to touch the bios.

AMD FX-8320E Vishera 8-Core 3.2GHz (4.0GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W FD832EWMHKBOX Desktop Processor

  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Should work in almost any AM3+ motherboard.
Is a great upgrade for 1, 2, 3, 4, or 6 core processors.
Extends computer performance enough to last another few years for only the cost of the processor.

Cons: None if you are replacing an old processor and can reuse the rest of the system.

Other Thoughts: I used this as a drop-in replacement for an Athlon II x4 640 processor. The performance jump is amazing. Since my motherboard has an AM3+ socket, it "just worked". This is an amazingly cheap upgrade for a 4+ year old system.

As long as you have an AM3+ motherboard, this upgrade is a no brainer.

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Worked. After reading about so many people having issues with various motherboard and RAM combinations, I was pleased when I had no problems at all.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This was my first DDR3 purchase. I went with Corsair, because I have had good experiences with them in the past. I was not disappointed.

I haven't tried to over clock them yet, but working at stock speeds from the begining is great.
