    Super. I actually thought of buying this mb: http://www.edbpriser.dk/bundkort/asrock-b75m-gl-id-6865719.aspx?q=asrock+b75 to fit in the current case(micro-atx I think), as I don't need space for many hdd's and so on.

    Is it a good idea, or is using a micro-atx case too limiting?

    Not at all. mATX is perfect if you don't need a ton of extra connectivity. That Asrock board you linked to seems a little -too- cheap. I would get either this ASUS or this Gigabyte. Paired with something like an i3-3220 or i5-3470 you should be good to go.

    Just be aware that overclocking is not supported on B75/H77 mainboards.

    If I may make a suggestion, get this board. Pair it with an i5-3470. This board will allow you to overclock the 3470 to above 3570K speed (3.4 vs 3.6GHz) and even the stock Intel cooler can handle 3.6GHz. Cheap and cheerfull, if your budget allows...
