Sandy Bridge ITX

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So i am planning a new ITX build, and have already got my SG05 and everything else minus the Mobo & Processor. I was going to go with the H55 and an i3, but they have released an ITX H67 mobo already on newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...tem=13-121-484 and I was going to grab this i5 from microcenter http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0354589 this seems like a good idea, but look at the placement of the CPU socket, and how aweful it is. I already have a Shuriken Rev B. and was wondering do you guys think it will fit (assuming 1155 and 1156 have same bolt pattern)?

or what other options would I have for aftermarket low profile cooling?

FWIW this setup would cost me ~$90 more than the H55 and i3 in your opinion is this worth it?

You can most definitely use a 1156 cooler on Socket 1155. No need for assumptions, it's fact.

Are you going to be doing some heavy overclocking on that ITX mobo, if not why the k?

I don't think H67 allows processor overclocking, so there's no need for a -K CPU.

This. If you get that intel H67 motherboard then you better get an i5 2400 from MC.

Ive got a pretty similiar setup on a board with the same cpu socket placement and the shuriken will fit just fine in regard to the pci-e slot, ram, and case
the prolimatech samuel 17 and thermalright axp 140 are both also fully compatible

heres the board


and in the case with the gpu, you could maybe squeeze a backplate in too
