probably shouldnt use a last gen cpu.motherboard isnt for overclocking.why go a micro atx board if you are getting a larger case that supports regular atx.

suggest you switch to 4670(cpu) choose a motherboard thats fairly cheap(because no overclocking) and get a case that matches with it.

theres no reason that you cant put a micro atx in a mid tower case but its just a bit wasteful.
