More about : cpu fit AbdullahG a b V Motherboard a b à CPUs October 25, 2011 9:03:17 PM Depends on your motherboard. Is it a socket LGA 1155 motherboard? If yes, then it will. Score 0 rg01 October 25, 2011 9:10:18 PM It doesn't seem as though there are many mobo's to choose from. When selecting the mobo do I need to just specify the LGA 1155 or do I need to select the P67 chip-set, etc? I need the mATX to go into a SilverStone SUGO4 Score 0 Related resources Will this CPU Cooler fit my case? - Forum will a Noctua NH-U14S CPU Cooler fit on a MSI Z97 Gaming 5 Motherboard ? - Forum Will an Enermax ETS-T40 CPU Cooler fit inside my case - Forum Will this Motherboard, CPU Cooler and RAM combo fit together?????????? - Forum will this cpu cooler fit? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

When selecting the mobo do I need to just specify the LGA 1155 or do I need to select the P67 chip-set, etc? I need the mATX to go into a SilverStone SUGO4 All you really need to look for is that the board uses a LGA 1155 socket. The chipsets are there for certain reasons: H61/H67: For home use; allows you to use Intel HD Graphics, but no overclocking; tend to have few features P67: For gamer use; allows for overclocking, but not HD graphics; tends to have a nice amount of features Z68: for enthusiast; allows for overclocking and HD graphics use; tends to have many features In a microATX, it will fit IF it is an LGA 1155 socket motherboard.

From your help above looks as though I should stay with the P67 or Z68? Thanks. Score 0 Best solution AbdullahG a b V Motherboard a b à CPUs October 26, 2011 12:16:17 AM I recommend the Asrock Extreme3 Gen3 Z68 motherboard. Much cheaper than most P67 MoBos (and it's Z68). Great build quality and performance. It's close to $130. Share rg01 October 26, 2011 12:49:43 AM Best answer selected by rg01. Score 0 rg01 October 26, 2011 1:32:52 AM Where did you buy this mobo?
