I've seen a trend lately of people coming in and asking why doesn't this work or work right. When shopping for parts for a DIY build you have to check the compatibility of each and every little part that will make up the system. Any one weak link will affect the over all performance of the system.
The big question you face when putting together a computer is, Will all of the parts play well together? In your case it appears that is not so. You say the mother board is cheap and crappy. The answer to your question is staring you in the face. We were, simply put, agreeing with you. And OhSnapWord was suggesting a couple of boards that would do better than the one you are frustrated with now.
"sigh" Something you might want to try is getting the mother board drivers latest version. That's the drivers for the chip set. Find what brand and model they are then go get the drivers and install them. Might help, might not. Won't hurt to try...
I understood your metaphor just fine, but it did nothing to tell me whether or not my motherboard was a bottleneck; all you did was confirm that it's a piece of crap.
I wasn't asking you whether or not my sentiments about my motherboard being crappy were correct, I was asking you whether or not it could be the reason I am getting sub-par performance with my particular system.
This is far from my first build, but I know very little about motherboards and the general consensus seems to be that many believe unless your living in 1993 your motherboard will not
bottleneck your system; I haven't been getting the performance that I believe that I should be getting on my FX-8350 so I was hoping that somebody here could help me with that, and ja6on did; but I appreciate you trying to help nonetheless.
Respect deserves respect and I wasn't rude or arrogant to you in the least,
I even thanked you for your reply; but the fact remains, you did not answer my question so I simply told you such and thanked you for your efforts.
Again, if you were genuinely trying to help, I tip my hat to you Sir. Thank you kindly for your efforts and may you have a great evening.
