Hello, I know that the ASRock website states that this motherboard will support an FX8350, however, I've been duped by such a statement in the past in which, although my system did indeed work with the supposedly supported CPU (with the required BIOS update), it's performance was horrible.

What I'm wondering is if anyone has any actual personal experience with this setup and how it performs. Will the FX8350 be limited in it's performance, in any way, by this particular motherboard and chipset?

I apologize if this information could be found elsewhere, I tried and did not find it.

I'm looking to upgrade from a PII 955BE to the FX8350 and don't want to buy a new motherboard if I can help it. Thank you in advance.
