I need a new micro ATX motherboard - any suggestions? Tags: Motherboards Last response: February 17, 2013 6:20 PM in Motherboards Share MRnightmuffin February 17, 2013 1:56:56 PM I'm currently using a cheap H61M motherboard, I need a mobo that will fit in a fractal design 1000 case, support SLI + Crossfire + overclocking + i5-i7 processors, it also needs to be fairly cheap, thanks!

Here's a cheap z77 board that will give you some options: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... | Report abuse Reply to o1die MRnightmuffin February 17, 2013 5:33:46 PM Hmm, thanks for the response, a few queries though. Would it be good for SLI/Crossfire considering how close together the two slots are? Will it definately fit in my case? Also, is PCI 2.0 work with PCI 3.0? Thanks. | Report abuse Reply to MRnightmuffin JLawL February 17, 2013 6:00:47 PM MRnightmuffin said:Hmm, thanks for the response, a few queries though.

With Micro ATX, there is only one way that SLI/Crossfire will work, and its the way that motherboard has it set up. The card fits in slots 1 and 3 out of 1 2 3 4. If your case supports Micro ATX it will fit. PCI 2.0 and PCI 3.0 are different, but that motherboard has both. | Report abuse Reply to JLawL MRnightmuffin February 17, 2013 6:20:02 PM Sounds good, what if my case is USB 2.0 whereas the mobo has usb 3.0, is 2.0 compatible with 3.0? | Report abuse Reply to MRnightmuffin Register or log in to remove Ask the community Post an answer Tom's Hardware>Forum>Motherboards>I need a new micro ATX motherboard - any suggestions?> Related ressources: ForumNeed AMD micro-ATX motherboard recommendation ForumMicro ATX motherboard upgrade ForumMicro ATX build.
