Hi there,

I'm about to upgrade my current pc with an i5-3570K, and this motherboard:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B008LZO7LO/ref=ox_sc...

I know that the H61 mobo's don't support overclocking, but my question is whether the motherboard will support the CPU not overclocked at all?



The reason I am buying the unlocked version is because there is an offer which makes the locked and unlocked version the same price, so why not buy the unlocked version just in case i want to overclock in the future.



Thanks,
Joe

It requires a bios update (2012.10.12), it's risky.

Get a better mobo : http://www.amazon.co.uk/MSI-B75MA-P45-Motherboard-Intel...

That one has four dimm slots and 100% compatibility with that cpu out of the box.
That's if you don't have the h61, if you already have the mobo and a previous cpu you just need to flash the bios.
