Looking for AM3+ chipset 970 MicroATX mobo that compatible with Fx-6300?

Hi

I dont know people don't make MicroATX mobo with 970. Do I have to be concerned about that? I see a lot of option with older chipset.

Please let me know if you have any recommendation.

    Any of those would work but sadly there are not any micro ATX motherboards there all full size mobo's...:/ I will look into this for you I think I herd something about a few being made a while back i'll see if I can find one for you from a different suppler...

    sorry but this mobo does not support am3+ CPU's this is wrong info...
    And it would not run a fx- 6300 cpu...

    Amazon has it mislisted. Asus lists it as a ATX (standard rather than micro).

  4. So basically there is no microATX that come with 970? Does the chipset matter a lot if I dont do OC, and Xfire?

    Lol okay so it was miss listed on amazon as it also only said ASUS M5A97 R2.0 - Socket AM3 AMD 970 Chipset MicroATX Motherboard DDR3 SATA 6Gb/s PCIE Gigabit LAN 7.1CH HD Audio USB3.0

    It didn't say it was a am3+ socket which on ausu it is and does support the fx cpu that he was wanting...

    thanks for clearing that one up...but I knew something wasn't adding up when I glanced at it so I basically said it was wrong info and it wasn't what he was wanting anyway...as its not a micro atx motherboard...

    I don't think it makes a difference. The only difference that I see is that integrated graphics chipsets get a bit better as time goes on (970 didn't even have an integrated graphics chipset though) and HyperTransport 3.1 with 3.0 compatibility. I tried searching, but I coulnd't find any benchmarks or clues as to what the real world performance difference between 3.0 and 3.1 is. I don't think it should make too much of a difference.
