Exclamation Micro ATX MOBO for AM3+ CPU

I'm trying to build a new PC and just noticed that there are no good MOBO's for latest AMD FX-8350 8 core CPU in micro ATX format.
I'm looking for at least 2 USB 3.0 on the back + 2 USB 3.0 on the board + video chip on board.

I see few good options for normal ATX case but not for micro ATX format.

Does anyone know when Gygabite/Asus/AsRock are planning to release new micro ATX MOBO's with new features?

Thanks

The MSI 860GM-P43 supports that CPU. Note, though that the model number of that board is a little deceptive. It actually uses the AMD 760G chipset, not 860G.

EDIT: I probably should add that most MSI 760G based boards seem to support that CPU. I don't know why Gigabyte boards don't.

Default Micro ATX MOBO for AM3+ CPU

Hi c.hegge,

Not quite what I'm looking for.
This MOBO does not have USB 3.0 neither SATA 6GB.

I don't know why new micro ATX are not being release to the market, more specifically for AMD CPU's.

I dfinately feel your pain! On the AMD side, there is little choices for performance Motherboards with an AM3+ Socket, they alomost all are the FM2 socket. I basically gave up trying to find what I want on an AM3+...it just doesn't exist.
I currently have an asus F2A85-M PRO running the newer A10-6800K processor, which is 4core and clocks in at 4.1 if I remember right. This is a nice combonation and has everything I need, excepot for an 1394 header, which is another dinsour quickly becomming extinct.
At any rate, this is about the best AMD processor I could find, with a mid-priced board, with lots of stuff.
I think the bottom line, is if you want monster performance, with a mATX, you need to go intel...unfortunately. I have found some really nice mATX boards with socket 2011 and 1150 that handle powerful i7's. Also lots of 1155, but I think that may be getting dated now.
