    It won't OC. Its not a "K" and the H97 doesn't support OCing. No more ocing. No time, no enthu :)

    I wish I could get ATX board for the price I paid for this puny board.

    But it's compact enough and does the job. You miss the space for anything?

    No. The old board had very good cooling around the cpu socket. This has nothing. I paid high price for newer high end chipset for somewhat entry level build quality board.
