Alright, im planning to get this:

intel core i5 2500k

Will i be able to overclock my cpu and run my gtx560 later in SLI mode with a 850 psu ?
Will this mATX board fit in my bitfenix merc beta case ?
Should i update my bios after i install the OS on my new SSD.

Is there anything i should know before installing this new mobo, cpu and corsair 90gb ssd ?

I would go with a full atx motherboard, the matx boards do not overclock as well and generally don't have enough spacing for sli/crossfire.

Why matx boards dont overclock well ?

MATX boards have less quality components, there are also less spacings between the pcie slots which can cause heat problems or the chance of your cards not fitting.
