Would I be Able to Overclock my CPU and GPU with an Asus H170-M Plus motherboard?
I'm gonna build my first pc soon and was just wondering if the Asus H170-M Plus motherboard can be used to overclock the CPU and GPU. I don't have the money to upgrade to a Z170 mobo so I have to get the H170.
I'd also like to get a 2nd GPU for crossfire in the future, but that won't be for a year or so.
My CPU: Intel i5 6600k My GPU: MSI Radeon R9 390
Is it worth spending the extra money for a Z170?
Any advuce is appreciated!

There's no reason why you can't OC your GPU but H170 doesn't support SLI/Crossfire nor does it support more than very minor overclocking of your CPU.
For SLI / crossfire and overclocking, you need a Z170 motherboard.
