I plan on building a computer for just gaming. I will be using a fx 8350 cpu and r9 280x gpu. I need to keep the costs low so I am planning on using a 970 motherboard chipset. I will buy a hyper evo 212 cooler for cooling during overclocks. My question is how much of an improvement is the 990 chipset over the 970, and would my cooler restrict my overclocks before the board does? I would like to have the ability to crossfire in the future.
