Is there such thing as a good micro-atx am3+ board for overclocking

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I was hoping to move my parts into a small rig more specifically a Silverstone SG02W-F but I can't seem to find any decent boards and now I'm wondering if they even exist. I need something that can handle a 125w chip at a reasonable overclock and have room for my 7950 and OCZ Revodrive

I tried to look 2-3 months ago, there is no AMD solution for itx builds except with the FM socket and even with that there were issues with the motherboards burning up (w/o OC). I think the A85 chipset are somewhat better.

Really hope for a AM3+ ITX mobo. But I doubt they will get any attention... Asus made an ITX mobo with an additional daughter board to support extra VRMs but it was for the Intel platform only.

Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3, AMD 760G +SB710, AM3+, 4+1VRM 125W TDP, SATA-3, USB 3.0 $54.99 after $10 rebate @newegg Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
motherboard makers really aren't making any performance AM3+ mATX. FM2 ITX market is finally getting some high end boards.
If you are planning on using you PH2 you might be able to find some good AM3 mATX boards based on the 890GX chips.

Unfortunately it looks like I'll just stick with my current setup since there aren't any decent boards...
