Hey guys, right now I'm running my FX-8350 at 4.5ghz on a 970A-D3 board with Extreme LLC. Having extreme llc turned on has resulted in my mobo spiking vcore when the power is needed to achieve a small 4.5ghz overclock. Many people have mentioned the power phasing on my board being a problem. I have finally decided that I want to upgrade my mobo so that I can achieve hopefully at least 4.8ghz. Something with 2pciex16 slots preferrably as well. I may run 7950 xfire in the future not sure. Any suggestions for brands and models? Thanks!

A few noob questions, mind me. First off, the Extreme 9 looks amazing for the price.Does it have dual bios (im sure it does just couldnt find it), also do you think it will fit in an Antec 300 case? Thanks for the suggestions and help!

Yes, it will fit, it's a standard atx motherboard, not a eatx mobo.

Ok, I rechecked, it does have dual bios(uefi) im assuming. I could just measure my case, just wondering if anyone had this in an Antec 300

It will fit, it's standard atx motherboard, your case supports any standard atx motherboard.
