Hey guys. I'm looking to buy a new motherboard so I can overclock my cpu and do an sli configuration in the near future.

My specs are
i5 3570k
Gigabyte gtx 670 windforce x3
Corsair vengeance 8gb ddr3 1666mhz
Corsair ax860
Coolermaster v6 gt

The motherboard I have already is a GA-B75M-D3H
I've only ever had gigabyte motherboards and I have never ever had a problem with gigabyte motherboards so I would like to stick with them. I think I need socket 1155 and I have a zalman z11-plus med case, so if it can fit that awesome. I just need something reliable that the CPU can be overclocked and can sli 2 gtx 670s preferably pci-e 3 2 x 16

Something like a Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H is about right for what your after. It will overclock and supports dual Crossfire/SLI just fine.

Looks like a good mobo. The only thing I would be worried about is not being able to fit the coolermaster v6gt.

The V6T supports the LGA1155 socket, it will fit on that board. Only thing that might cause issues with the cooler is your RAM, not the motherboard.

I know it will fit I'm more concerned that the blue thing next to the cpu socket will get in the way ram fits in the b75 fine
