  1. 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.

  2. +1 the 212 will still bring you to 4.5 4.6 easily with a 3570k...
  3. also what would be a good cheap mobo to go with a radeon hd 7850 2gb oc and i want to add anther card in the future so it will need to be av=ble to do crossfire
  4. 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.
  5. im in the uk i dident know if to get that mobo or a
    Asus P8Z77-V LX wich would u say is better

    Check out this review, they tested the ASUS board

    http://uk.hardware.info/reviews/3602/6/asus-p8z77-v-lx-review-affordable-asus-z77-motherboard-conclusion

    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.
  7. is there a decent maxt simaler spec to theses atx mobos
  8. or itx
  9. Well the Gigabyte Z77M-D3H is a mATX board, I tihnk you'd really struggle to find a ITX board that supports crossfire.
  10. MATX and OC? NOPE!

    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.
