  3. is there any huge difference between atx and micro atx because micro atx seems to be cheaper..is there any mobo without sli or crossfire because i dont need them .and also tell me a budget good h67 mobo with usb 3 and sata 3.0 ..if the i5 2500k cpu is overclocked to 4ghz will i notice a big difference on every day computing like games.video conversion ,movies ,surfing web etc ..
  4. no the micro is 9.6" x 9.6" = fits in to smaller cases with microATX factor size.

    ATX is 12" x 8.86" is 2.4 inch longer, so its about 6cm longer. Has more room for the components, its good in hot India weather, because its not so crammed together, so it can cool itself better using passive cooling.
  5. and what about overclocking from 3.3 to 4 ghz is there a huge difference because in hot conditions im risking my processor..do i really want to overclock with this cooler cm hyper tx3 to 4ghz..or a h67 board will be enough for stock speeds..
  6. With cooler master hyper tx3 cooler, u will be fine.
  7. I would stick with Z68.
  8. so overclocking from 3.3ghz to 4ghz makes a huge difference right..are u sure in that hot conditions i can overclock to 4ghz with this cooler because in summer the condition gets worse here more hotter like 33c in my room itself i cant use ac frequently ..my friends recommend to get an h67 chipset because they had a poor overclocking experience in that climate..as i dont want sli they also told me to invest the remaining money in gfx card..
  9. U will have to test it by yourself, it is a OK cooler for that.
  10. what is the difference if i go to an h67 chipset and not overclock my cpu can i get best performance..because i dont want to tak risk with my cpu thats why im sticking to h67..
