    i5 7600K with a H270 motherboard?


    There is a i5 7600k on sale in my store right now. Im going to buy it, but I dont know which motherboard to choose. I have 2 choices. MSI H270M Mortar Arctic (mATX) and MSI Z270 PC Mate (ATX). I really want the H270M, but the problem is that it cant overclock my CPU. Is it stupid of me to buy a i5 7600k CPU with a motherboard that does not support overclocking?

    I wouldn`t actually call it stupid, but it would be unwise You should get the Z270

    I`ve only bought Z boards, why can`t an H board OC a cpu ??


    How about this one ? It looks like the H270 you want.

    Wow, thats a beautiful piece of technology! Gonna buy it Thanks! I was hoping it would have been a mATX version, but ATX works too

    (I just noticed, its only up for preordering in my country. Coming in 6 days) But still, I think its worth waiting for it
