Im looking to upgrade my cpu and mobo, its been a good 5 years or so but my i7 920 is holding me back a bit. Ive decided to go with the i5 4670k but not sure which motherboard to get, any advice would be appreciated. I would like to get a modest overclock and be able to SLI my GTX 760 in the future.

Would be decent. But I'd go with this, over that board. The case is a Cosmos II, without the side panel.

Lately Some MSI motherboard have lot of Issue according forum but ther workaround Gigabyte & Asus are usually no brainer ? but Serriously uATX for a ATX Chasis is like a very stupid choice given all the feature it lack compare to M-ATX Or ATX such as no PCI Connector But you can buy adapter to run a PCI to a PCIE 1X From what i read still it not a good idea for ATX sized comp

But uATX Asus Gryphon Look Like a Really Good motherboard for Home Theater PC or some Steam box Console sized

Also Since when the Gigabyte is Tron Legacy Themed look Exactly Like CLU lol i wonder how review are of that Gigabyte i bet it Awesome can't go wrong with Gigabyte usually a bit more complex usually then other motherboard to access Feature but Solid Warranty / Tech support For Motherboard At least
