Which one is the best 990FX motherboard offered for the following applications, it would be coupled with Bulldozer:
-I will be holding onto my current HD5870's and running them in crossfire. Currently I do not have dual x16 for the crossfire, but this is something I would really like. It must be able to run both graphics cards at x16 along with meeting all other requirements.
-Must be able to support my PCI-E x1 Asus D2X and have proper room for it.
-Must be full sized ATX, where all 3 hole "lanes" will mount normally (most 990X boards are shorter).
-I would like some form of EFI implementation, though I do not know as much as I should about this technology.
-The bigger the heatsink the better. I put my parts into a fairly extreme situation since its a gaming PC focused around being silent, airflow isn't crazy in there and being able to survive high heat is a good thing.
Thanks all! Here is a link to the ones available at newegg so you can skip straight there:http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductLi ... MD%20990FX
Kinda leaning towards either the $250 Gigabyte or $230 Asus, but would like some input....specifically these 3:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6813128508http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6813131736http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6813131735
