    Amazon currently have the G3258 CPU for less than £38.08. So I have ordered it, but now need a cheap Mini ITX motherboard that will enable me to overclock it. I've read conflicting info about whether the cheap ones can overclock. Any help appreciated.

    Usually Intel only allows Z chipset boards to overclock because they chips they haven't locked are expensive too, but they seem to have made an exception for the anniversary edition.

    Finding a cheap Mini-ITX motherboard is going to be the harder challenge, they don't usually go for less than £50. Micro ATX is a much better bet.

    Thanks for the reply. I'll take another look at MATX cases to see if I can find a small enough one that I like.
