Any good m-ATX AM3+ mobo out there?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Looking to build my new rig in smaller case, but there seems to be only low end mobos available for mATX form factor. I am going to use FX8350, overclocked to 4.7(can bring it down to 4.5 if necessary) but I'm not sure if sub-$100 mobos would do the job fine!

Does anyone have overclock experience with mATX AM3+ mobo, and which would you recommend?

Your best bet on running it is the GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-USB3, since it's 4+1 phase and has a heatsink over the VRMs. Most of the other boards have less phases, no VRM cooling, and some don't even support 140W CPUs. I'm not too sure it would handle 4.7ghz though or even 4.5ghz. If you want to run the chip at it's full potential, you should really go to an ATX board. If you went 1155 on the other hand, there are quite a few options available.
