The reason for this budget board is mainly to obtain high overclocking results to sell more of these mobos. Giga's other AM3+ mobos have poor VRM circuit designs that overheat when you overclock an FX-8000 series CPU on them, thus throttling the CPU speed. Gigabyte has known this for several years but they have refused to update their line of AMD mobos to handle the power draw of the OC'ed FX-8000 series CPUs.

given Gigabytes boards were fine before FX 8xxx was released and that FX 8xxx isn't 2 years old, your claim seems.... flawed.

that said it's nice to see an improved board coming out for me to use with my upcoming FX 6xxx.
