  1. Hi.

    Why not? The mobos comes with good chipset for overclock plus you have a good cooler. I think that's possible. But if you want something better, a mobo with 890FX or 790FX chipset is the best option for overclock.

    Maybe you can hit the 4.2GHZ stable with a little work and patience and always that your temps stay at 55ºc or below, you are safe to go.
  2. if there any review or some one try that because

    i have choice between

    M4A87TD/USB3
    &
    GA-890FXA-UD5
  3. Not really, keep in mind that overclock isn't the same even if you have the same components that another person.

    If I where you, I'd go with the UD5. I know that is a little more that you needs, but is a high end mobo and gives you more quality for overclock that ASUS mobo.
