So I got my friends PC at my shop rn. I'm in charge of finding a good mobo replacement and changing it out for him. His build is this:

CPU: AMD FX-8320
RAM: 8gb corsair vengeance ddr3
MOBO: Asus M5A78L-M/USB3
GPU: Geforce GTX 960 (EVGA)

I need a decent Mobo replacement. The case has 4 fans, but only 3 need to have a plug on the mobo. I'd prefer to have 3 available, however I can try and find a splitter if need be. The main use will be gaming. if you need any more info, let me know

Used to have a MSI 970A SLI KRAIT EDITION in my old build and loved it. Now I am currently running the Gigabyte 990FX - Gaming Motherboard.

It depends on your budget, if you mind getting a second-hand motherboard and if you want to overclock your CPU or not.

I've ended up ordering one already. Thanks for the input though! I forgot to lock the thread last night :tongue:
