  1. Best answer
    Dont like the Mobo.

    a) its a micro and you dont need a micro for the CM690.
    b) No USB 3 or Sata 6.
    c) its a Xfire/sli board

    Try this one.

    Do you really need the ECO version? Try these cheaper and better ram.

    Af far as OCing goes you will probably need a cooler try this combo. The Hyper 212 plus is one of the best bangs for the buck when it comes to cooling and its in a combo with an optical for 45 bucks.

    Hyper 212 plus and Optical

    Just my 2 cents
