Which motherboard for overclocking amd 8320 or 8350

hello
im finally getting my build ready for my new gaming rig but i am stuck on two choices

i can get amdfx 8320 and a £100ish motherboard or
amd fx 8350 and a £70 ish motherboard
I want to overclock so this is what my build looks like at the moment
so my options are
coolermaster 212 evo £27
ddram (not sure ) 8gb £50-60
gpu- powercolor myst radeon 7870 2gb £156
seagate barrucuda 1tb £48
Corsai 600 w bronze but theres a modular and non modular, what the difference

So which motherboard would be best for performance overclock and worth the money
THis maybe? http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-GA-990FXA-UD3-Optical-Channel-Motherboard/dp/B00545BZOG/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1374333758&sr=8-2&keywords=GA970A-UD3

    Read through this:

    http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/13709-cooler-master-hyper-212-evo-vs-412s/

    And also read this:

    http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/355456-28-8320-8350

    If you are not willing to spend a little bit more that's ok.
  3. hmm what about
    gigabyte 990fx with 8350 overclocked.. is it worth the money compared to 8320 overclocked and i would have to buy a cooler still. That link to linustech didnt clear anything..still confused
  4. Here are some benchmarks between those coolers (and others):

    From what I saw gigabyte makes good boards so I think it's a good option.
    You can go with like an AMD FX 6350 BE and have a bit more headroom in terms of price for the MBO

    Just make sure the motherboard supports that CPU

    I think coolermaster would be enough but if you want some crazy overclocks go with the corsair one.
  7. its refurbed the corsair 100h so is that a problem
