More about : mobo 2500k Anonymous a b V Motherboard August 4, 2012 3:25:42 AM personally i stay away from microATX boards; generally less features and harder to work on being smaller. ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 $124.99 was the board to get until everyone fell in love with the Z77 chipset. still a great board. m 0 l jds94 August 4, 2012 3:32:43 AM my case is a microatx though so i dont have much options. m 0 l Related resources New mobo for i5 2500k - Forum Hal.dll Blue Screen (new i5 2500k and mobo) - Forum Help me pick a new mobo for an i5 2500k; GA-Z68XP-UD3 power loop of death - Forum Mobo suggestion for Core i5 2500k - Forum How to overclock intel i5 2500k on a z77x-ud3h mobo? - Forum Can't find your answer ?
