Hi,

Check out this review, they have a comparison at the bottom of the page showing the H70 outperforming the 212+
Mind you the H70 is more expensive and if you just want a mild overclock then go for the 212+ as it'll be fine.

+1 the 212 will still bring you to 4.5 4.6 easily with a 3570k...

I don't know where you live but in the UK you can pick up a MSI Z77A-G43 Intel Z77 for £75
It supports crossfire and will accommodate a mild overclock aswell.

Check out this review, they tested the ASUS board

It doesn't seem like a particularly good board, they rated the Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H quite highly so you may want to consider that aswell as the MSI G43.

Well the Gigabyte Z77M-D3H is a mATX board, I tihnk you'd really struggle to find a ITX board that supports crossfire.

Yeah you're right, the gigabyte board, although you can OC alittle is actually has very limited BIOS options for overclocking.

Perhaps if you really want mATX, crossfire and overclocking you'll have to spend a bit more.

Read some reviews of the ASRock Z77 Fatal1ty Professional-M and Asus Z77 Maximus V Gene as I'm pretty sure both of these support crossfire and overclocking.
