If you were asking for an Intel board recommendation I could help more with board selection. 

Any Asus or Asrock that supports your CPU and Crossfire thats newer gen should be great though.


CPU: i7 3930k @ 4.6GHz 1.29V (Corsair H110-cooled) ~ Motherboard: Asus RoG Rampage IV Extreme 
RAM: G.Skill Sniper Gaming Series (4x4GB 2133MHz, CL9) ~ PSU: Corsair AX 1200W ~ Case: Enermax Fulmo GT

Any ASUS 990FX based board would be my first choice. Gigabyte seems to be popular as well, but also seems to have more issues. AsRock would be my third choice.

ASUS Sabertooth 990FX/Gen3 R2, FX-8350 w/ Corsair H60, 8 GiB G.SKILL RipjawsX DDR3-2133, XFX HD 7970 Ghz, 512GB Vertex 4, 256GB Vector, 240GB Agility 3, Creative X-Fi Titanium w/ Creative Gigaworks S750, SeaSonic X750, HP ZR2440w, Win 7 Ultimate x64

i'm using the gigabyte 990fx and it's fine.  but my son has the gigabyte 970 with one r9-280x and i don't think he could run another gpu because the sata connections would get in the way.  he had a issue and i had to move it to the other slot and i had to move his sata connections to get it to fit without having to bend the hell out of the sata cables.
