As the title says, I'm looking for a motherboard to fit my current build.

I'd like to SLI Dual slot GTX 460's and be able to overclock my processor.
(A core unlocker would be nice, but not necessary)
Needs to be DDR3 with 4 slots, any speed is fine.

Also, and an 8pin cpu would be a bonus instead of the 4pin.


It would need to be able to be shipped to the US 48.

Any/all help is greatly appreciated, thank in advance!

There are no boards listed on Newegg that support what you want.

There are only 4 microATX boards listed with 2 PCIe x16 slots. 1 can't support dual-slot graphics, 2 more only have 2 DDR3 slots, and all four use AMD chipsets, so no SLI.

If newegg doesn't even list a compatible board, good luck finding one elsewhere. I think the sad fact is that Nvidia is slowly giving-up on motherboards in general. They can't make boards for Core i3,i5,i7 because of Intel's douchiness, and they probably don't care too much about AMD ever since they bought ATI (and because of their much smaller market-share and lack of a true enthusiast CPU). Therefore, the AM3/SLI niche market probably wasn't worth investing in.

You're only real option for microATX SLI is P55 and Core i5/i7.

Hopefully, I am proven wrong but there are no mATX/uATX AM3 MOBOs with SLI 2 PCIe MOBO. ATX yes. Also, there are CF m/uATX AM3.

There are Intel based m/uATX MOBO that will support dual SLI.

I did a lot of searching before I settled on my MSI 890GXM-G65. I'd rather have SLI but I'll settle for maybe 1 GTX 460 running the graphics and 1 GTS 250 running PhysX until I build my next rig. If you really want SLI you're going to have to go with a full ATX board.
