Will an Intel BX80623I72600K Core i7 2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4 GHz Socket 1155 95W Quad-core fit on a micro ATX mobo?
 
Solution
I recommend the Asrock Extreme3 Gen3 Z68 motherboard. Much cheaper than most P67 MoBos (and it's Z68). Great build quality and performance. It's close to $130.

It doesn't seem as though there are many mobo's to choose from. When selecting the mobo do I need to just specify the LGA 1155 or do I need to select the P67 chip-set, etc?

I need the mATX to go into a SilverStone SUGO4

All you really need to look for is that the board uses a LGA 1155 socket. The chipsets are there for certain reasons:

H61/H67: For home use; allows you to use Intel HD Graphics, but no overclocking; tend to have few features

P67: For gamer use; allows for overclocking, but not HD graphics; tends to have a nice amount of features

Z68: for enthusiast; allows for overclocking and HD graphics use; tends to have many features

In a microATX, it will fit IF it is an LGA 1155 socket motherboard.

The configuration I will have is the

SilverStone SG04 case

8 GB mem

CPU I7 Sandy Bridge 2600K

GTX 580 GPU

and a mobo. From your help above looks as though I should stay with the P67 or Z68?

Thanks.
