The memory you chose is laptop memory. Need to look for DDR3 240 pin memory.
This board requires 2×204pin SO-DIMMs

ASRock and ASUS mini-ITX motherboards:

Supported CPU CPU Socket
  • TypeLGA 1155 CPU TypeCore i7 / i5 / i3 (LGA1155)
Supported CPU TechnologiesSupports
  • Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 Technology
  • Supports Intel K-Series unlocked CPU

You should just either wait for Z68 Mini-ITX boards or just go mATX. Otherwise you're just wasting money.

You should just get a mATX board over mini-ITX if you wanna do the expansions you're thinking about. It'd be less headache in the long run and you still have a SFF system.

However, Arrowhead, he needs the laptop memory for that Mini-ITX board, it only accepts 204pin SO-DIMM.

I did say it is temporary, right? This is all that is available for now. I only need one expansion slot. I can run a GTX-570 or GTX-580 in this case and O/C that heck out of the i5K on this board. All in the small form factor that I want. Plus as far as I can tell, I'll be one of the 1st to do this.

Still, if it's just temporary it's a waste of money. You should just wait for the Z68 Mini-ITX boards to come out.

Also, the H67 boards cannot OC much more than just what turbo boost can offer. I wonder what you're having a hard time understanding.

It is my money, not yours. It's just $169 and as soon as the Z68 minis come out, it will get sold or put in something else. I really don't care what you would do. I don't have a computer right now other than an old POS laptop so I'm don't want to wait for a certain MB to come out. Why can't you just appreciate this build and the fact that I'm one of the 1st to be pushing the limits of the small form factor. Besides, I'm a paraplegic and lifting around my last 60+ pound custom UHAF case was seriously difficult for me. This will be a one of a kind, super small and very nice tidy build when it is done -plus be super fast.

Just because it supports K CPUs doesn't mean the board will support the true potential of the processor. You do realize that even with a 2500K/2600K/etc., all H67 boards are still multiplier-locked, right? You'll only be able to overclock up to the highest turbo frequency...which is exactly what you get if you buy a regular non-K chip.

No reason to be arrogant. The people are trying to help you here, and they have a point.
It seems like you need knowledge about what you're actually going to buy ...

Except for the fact that they preceded to tell me what I should and shouldn't buy after I posted my purchase. -Even still after I changed the title to solved: I don't have a lot of patience for people that don't read the thread before they post.

because you cannot use the full potential of the CPU with H67. either get a P67 or a Z68. else buy a 2500 non-K.

first one to do what?

I had my i5 at 3.8ghz when I could afford air conditioning, and I'm getting a 6950 soon


Cool build, would like to see that new case
