I have a few questions I hope you can help me with! With recommendations from inhere I build an HTPC about ½ year ago! Now I want to do a "little" upgrade! Motherboard: DH67CF CPU: Core i5 I5-2500K I can reuse the RAM I have. 2 questions I need answered. 1: As you can see it's a Mini ITX motherboard and the case I'm using is a Chenbro ES34069H so there's not alot of space. What heatsink sould I get? 2: The CPU has a build in Intel HD Graphics but can I watch 720p HD with that? I really hope you'll help me with this! - Steffen More about : 2500k heatsink kilo_17 a b V Motherboard January 28, 2011 5:47:07 PM I'm by no means an expert, but you should be able to play 720p videos with the integrated graphics (correct me if I'm wrong) m 0 l ko888 a c 107 à CPUs a c 217 V Motherboard January 29, 2011 1:10:56 AM Steffer said:1: As you can see it's a Mini ITX motherboard and the case I'm using is a Chenbro ES34069H so there's not alot of space.
