Will an i5-3750k fit on my motherboard? Tags: CPUs Overclocking Motherboards Intel i5 Last response: February 17, 2013 6:21 PM in CPUs Share MRnightmuffin February 17, 2013 4:14:54 PM 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?

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