1]
guys im seeking a mobo to my new rig.whats the best between above 2 mobos? i know they categorized into same intel chipset,pretty much the same specs.but what do u guys think.d3h is little more cheaper(5$),but i think msi looks more cooler ive hyperx fury 4gb blue color and i guess it matches with msi mobos color combination(blue/brown).but ive heard people saying gigabyte is better than msi.
and guys i'll use this for my pc nxt couple of years(i'll add another amd gpu,a ssd stuff like that)so question remaning what do u guys think i should buy?
2]
and can i overclock my ram later?but both of them supports 1600mhz????if i can how to do so

Gigabyte D3H is a little better in short, but either choice won't make a difference. If you prefer the look of the MSI, then get that one, for $5 more, I'd rather have a motherboard that is somewhat identical (motherboards don't have any impact on performance, only OC and features) but has the right colour scheme, so go for the MSI motherboard then.

BUT; Both boards do support Crossfire and Crossfire only, but second GPU runs in X4 mode on BOTH boards, making the second GPU underperform quite a bit, and that really isn't worth it in Crossfire, as your scaling down the performance even more then it is. A GPU in crossfire X8/X8 or X16/X16 config you'll get around a 85-90% increase in performance, in X4, your scaling it down even more to the low-high 60%'s.

Both boards support 1600Mhz, and the CPU FSB allows it to go even further as just because the motherboard doesn't list the speed, the CPU is the factor that decides it, so you can go higher depending on the CPU you have,

not really, no. As you increase speed, the CL will tend to increase, the higher the CL the slower the ram, the higher the speed the faster the ram, it essentially cancels it out, Some Haswell CPU's benefits for 1866Mhz but Your CPU (i3 haswell) is sweet spot for 1600Mhz, so no issue with ram not being able to overclock, won't make a difference.
