about a year ago i built my first pc. my build was an amd fx6300, my mobo is an m5a97ler2.0, with 8 gigs of gskill ddr3 ram, and a powercolor r7 370.

The motherboard is ok at most things like basic overclocking(nothing to high) and single graphics card solutions. The 970 nb chipset is very limiting with the four plus 1 powerphase and having only one pcie2.0 x16 slot running at full speed and the other running at x4 kinda makes any crossfire attempt slightly weaker than it should be. the reason i know this is that i am running a crossfire config on my system right now.

moral of the story buy the best mobo you can afford so that you can get the best performance out of everything. This motherboard is what is holding me back. if you want to know whats overclocked on this mobo let me know down below.
