    I picked up a spare 9590 AMD CPU a few weeks back on clearance, but neglected to verify if my spare mother board am3+ supports it.. It doesn't. Looking for compatible motherboards has been tough. Between Ebay, Amazon and sketchy other sites, my options are used motherboards for 200$+, or questionably new motherboards over 400$.

    If I'm going to buy used, I would rather support this site and its community. Do you have an old unused 990 AMD based chip set motherboard you'd like to send to a new home? I don't have brand loyalty, so Gigabyte, MSI, and Asus all had good offerings that supports that chip. I will come to you for pickup if you live in the Austin Texas area with cash. Otherwise, I am open to shipping and using paypal for payment.

    damn.. Thanks for looking. Im daily looking at newegg, and amazon hoping to come across something reasonable. There appears to be a sabertooth board on amazon new for 400$, but at that cost, id rather just cut my losses and build a thread ripper machine. Got a 1080ti, 800watt power supply, 64gigs of ddr3 ram, corsair case, 500 gig ssd, 2tb spinning brown, 9750 cpu, corsair 110i cooler, and all the other bits that go along with building a machine.. just need a MB.

    Is it this model that was $400 new on Amazon?

    I currently have it in my Plex server, but what would you be willing to pay for it?

    Make sure whatever board you get has some decent VRMs with a good heatsink to handle that 9590

    Zepher, yes, thats the one. Looks like you and another forum member took pitty on me and have offers. Both boards are great boards.. so I'm kinda stuck.

    I'd sell it to cover the cost of a new case so that I can make my dual Xeon my Plex Server again.
