Howdy Folks!

Have a loose AMD Phenom II X6 1090T 125w TDP that needs a motherboard for a new build. would like some recommendations based on these specs:

Micro - ATX

125w TDP

USB 3.0 20 pin socket

DDR 3 memory 

been seeing some bad reviews on some MOBO manufactuers of AMD boards, so even if ya don't have a specific board in mind, opinions on which is a good brand  will be helpful.

thanks in advance!

There's a reason for that, you want a cheapo MicroATX board. You're going to want a grown up full ATX board with a 990FX chipset.

Those pint sized boards are fine for a rig using integrated graphics. People like with with a video card need more space to install it.

My latest full ATX board now has room for 2 video cards. The board has many performance benefits and the AMD 990FX really makes my older Phenom 965 X4 go.

Right now Asus makes the best AMD mobo's out there. 

 The Crosshair, Sabertooth, and even the M5A99FX are really good boards

Unless you've still got PCI cards, then you probably don't even need a microATX board.  The only real difference is if you want to overclock things, because smaller boards don't often have room for the extra widgets that an 8 or 10 phase power setup requires.  The exception is the P8Z77-I Deluxe from Asus which has a riser card that handles power distribution.

In AMD-land choices aren't as widespread, but for uATX it shouldn't be too difficult to find a decent board that fits your requirements.

checked the case i'd be using & it'll take an ATX board (current MATX board in), so got a ASUS  M5A99FX PRO R2.0  Mobo & 8Gb stick of Kingston for starters. Don't have much need for video performance, just for some graphic programs, music format conversions. probably just use the 1090T for some mild OC (yes, know water cooling is needed for some more aggressive OC'ings, just like to get the "feel" of OCing a system), then when the change jar fills back up a bit, more RAM , better CPU, etc, etc, etc ... (gad, when will it ever end???

Most mobo makers list what CPUs each model mobo supports on their website and also what BIOS version is required to support a specific model CPU.

-------------------------

Building a reliable PC involves more than just assembling the parts. You need to be able to configure all of the BIOS settings appropriately. This can be quite involved and frustrating as it can require a lot of trial and error with stress testing. It is however often the only means to get a 100% reliable PC.
