Hi folks, so I'm looking to buy a new am3+ motherboard for around £70, it needs cpu support for an fx-8320, have a usb 3.0 header (I think its called that >.<), be full atx, have at least 4 RAM slots and have the possibility to Xfire, it also needs room to fix a corsair h60 as I will be buying one very soon. I hope you can give me some ideas on what to get because I dont really know where to start.

Thanks Yebol

This is the thing you see, I saw these and thought they were amazing but when I look in the CPU support list it doesn't have the fx-8320 in their, that's the reason why I'm getting a new motherboard because my previous temporary mATX ASRock motherbaord doesn't have fx-8320 support either which is the reason why it underclocks my computer when it gets to 45 celsius, even after I turn off CnQ and C1E and stuff like that. :/ 

Personnally I have been looking at the Asus M5A97 EVO R2.0 because it looks like a good board with fx-8320 support but I don't know wether it'll be a good overclocker for the price (I'm looking to get to about 4 Ghz with the Corsair h60).

I looked into it and they removed the FX8320 and FX8350 from the support list do to heat issues.

Sorry.

Hi Blackbird, thanks for all of your answers you've been very helpful in this motherboard choosing conquest. I assume that's why I have a problem with mine currently because they must have removed all of their support for FX8320. :(
