I'm in need of a mobo for my FX 8120, but there's a catch.

It needs to be mATX to fit my case, support 16GB of DDR3 RAM and if possible have on board graphics (don't ask).
Oh and needs to support the lastest 9 series chipset.

Do they exist?... yet? I'm not sure if MSI has one, but I've had bad experiance with them in the past.

Any suggestions?

Judging by a quick check on gigabytes site it doesn't look like your going to get the 16GB of RAM support. The others requests are good to go though

go with an Asus board as most of them support up to 32gb of ram also UEFI makes then well worth it over any other boards

He needs it to be mATX, if the 16GB is a hard requirement it's going to be very difficult as I can't seem to find anything that is mATX and supports 16GB of RAM :/

That's a 8XX series mobo, if the OP isn't really in need of the 9XX series then yeah something like that is great!

Thanks for the replies.

I might have to just settle for the Gigabyte board with 8GB support, thanks for your help Hoochie!

Edit- which board were you looking at? All the ones I see are full ATX. Might just get a new case and go full ATX, but none have on board graphics. :/
