New Motherboard with PCI for AMD FX6350

Post by Janni » Wed Aug 29, 2018 10:51 am

Hello guys,

a friend of mine is searching for a new Motherboard with at least 1 PCI-Slot (for a RME HDSP), but better would be 2 because I've got a Pulsar2 left.
His CPU is an AMD FX6350 6 core 3,9GHz. 4 RAM Slots and 6 SATAs and onboard GRFX would be cool.
Since I'm on MAC and use an old HP XW6200 for Scope, I can't assist him...

He mainly wants to record and edit audio, but a few instances Kontakt would be great.
OS will be Win7 or Win10.
Do you have any recommandations?

Thanks and cheers,

Jan

yes, Intel :D


onboard graphics caused me troubles with real timing (clicks, pops... ) in Cubase, so i installed PCI-e card (slim silent) and it was fine then.
i have Z170 chipset.

nothing special,
AMD Radeon R5 230 Silent 2gb (silent) - main computer
asus gt1030 2gb (silent) - second computer

you can put whatever you want, i don't have plenty of space, cause both motherboards have 3 sound cards installed, and i also wanted silent computers :)

Hello Janni,

For AMD FX 6350 (same as FX8350) - It is AMD socket AM3+ for the motherboards

https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_ss ... QPX3ZAPB3F

RAM for these is DDR3 (don't forget :) )

Amazon have some boards as do New Egg possibly - or other computer stores
https://www.newegg.com/global/uk/Produc ... 0600158776

If you can find one of these boards below- :) -These were released late on, very late on - PCI-e is GEN 2 (so it's not quite perfect)-

https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA ... -rev-10#ov

AM3+ = AMD socket for your friends CPU

FX8350 has really dropped in price now so 70 $£ for not far off 3770 K performance (standard clocks) is good -
