A10-7850K Build Step 1: The Motherboard

Benedict Corpuz April 3, 2014 1
I went with the Gigabyte GA-F2A88X-D3H to plug my APU into.

This is a decent board for the price. This has 4 RAM slots as opposed to the 2 slots that the next model down has. When adding another GPU, one can crossfire with the GPU cores in the APU.

Unfortunately, this motherboard is a tad short of the standard ATX size. I was only able to mount 6 points out of the 9. It's ok, the motherboard can handle it because it is Ultra Durable, as advertised on the box.
