I have a tiny GA-H61M-DS2 motherboard, and was wondering whether an i5-3750k would fit on it? If I wanted to overclock it, which I don't think I can on my current motherboard, which micro atx board would I need to overclock it?

yes the GA-H61M-DS2 will take an i5-3570k

as long as you update to bios f4

Hmm, how would I go about doing that? Also, would I have to update it (if it isn't already bios 4 atm) before I install the i5-3750k?

and yes if its not already f4 you need to do it before putting in the 3570k

Having troubles installing CPUID, it keeps downloading that optimum installer crap, which i've read is dodgy...

I did it manually through a command - DELL - 1072009
BIOS Date: 03/23/12 19:41:27 Ver: 04.06.05
BIOS Date: 03/23/12 19:41:27 Ver: 04.06.05

Is that ok?

CPUID will have more than 1 link to download. Select another.

I believe I already have that installed mcnumpty, I only built this budget pc the other day, I should have the most up to date bios I guess

......then you should be at or above F4 and good to go (as long as you ran @bios - can't remember if it automatically runs).

the f4 bios was released 2012/02/20

so chances are its already on the board

I believe I may have F7? - BIOS Version/Date: American Megatrends Inc. F7, 23/03/2012

looks like theres been 6 different revisions of that motherboard

yours seems to be version 2.2

latest bios f8

edit--looks like version 2.0 and 2.1 and 2.2 use the same bios

they all show a version f7 with the date you said

So...I'm fine for an i5-3750k then?

looks like those revisions are good for a 3570k from f7
