    Shouldn't be any problems doing that. You will need to re-install windows switching from AMD to Intel though, and if you are using an OEM copy you'll have to buy it again.
  2. Oh, and H87 won't allow for overclocking, switch to Z87 chipset. Or drop down your CPU to the regular i5-4670 if you don't plan to overclock.
  3. Z87M-D3H or Z87M-D3HP?

    You are comparing two motherboards that offer the same basic features. One is Micro-ATX small form factor and the other is standard ATX. Either will work, but you will have less options to upgrade with the Micro-ATX due to slot configurations. For single video card setups it really doesn't matter.
  5. D3HP it is. Thanks so much for your help Eximo, really appreciate it.
