Will an i5-3750k fit on my motherboard?

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?

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

    as long as you update to bios f4
  2. 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?
  3. http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3970#bios

    will tell you how to flash to F4

    to check if you're already running F4 bios download CPUID and under Mainboard tab you will see your bios version.
  4. and yes if its not already f4 you need to do it before putting in the 3570k
  5. Having troubles installing CPUID, it keeps downloading that optimum installer crap, which i've read is dodgy...
  6. 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?
  7. CPUID will have more than 1 link to download. Select another.
  8. if you download gigabyte @bios it should tell you the current version and automatically get the newest version for you

  9. 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
  10. ......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).
  11. the f4 bios was released 2012/02/20

    so chances are its already on the board
  12. I believe I may have F7? - BIOS Version/Date: American Megatrends Inc. F7, 23/03/2012
  13. yeah

    looks like theres been 6 different revisions of that motherboard

    yours seems to be version 2.2

    latest bios f8

    http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4197#bios

    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
  14. So...I'm fine for an i5-3750k then?
  15. looks like those revisions are good for a 3570k from f7
  16. Alright sounds good, Thanks for all the responses everyone!
  17. you are welcome :)
