Hi guys

Yesterday I went to get a pc build from SMC Nehru Place. When I asked for Intel DH67BL-B3, he immediately said please do not buy intel, specially this one. according to him, that board is incapable to handle 6850 + i5 2500k and a lot of his customers have faced a harrowing time with this.

He said it repeatedly that I put off my my buying until i could find more about this. So I wanted to find out if he is right? How has been your experience with this?

The config I was building is this:


Processor Intel Core i5 2500k
Motherboard Intel DH67BL-B3
RAM Corsair 4GBx2 1600DDR3
Graphic Card AMD 6850
HDD Seagate 500GB 7200.12/ WDC 500GB Blue
DVD Writer LG 22X SATA DVD
PSU SeaSonic S12II 520
Case CoolerMaster e430
UPS Numeric 800VA

first thing, going with k series processor and H67 is totally wrong. If you are opting for k series processor its better go with P67 board.

the difference btw H67 and P67 is over Rs 4500. difference between 2500 and 2500k is around 800 bucks.
I would hardly be overclocking my system, maybe gfx card, not the CPU. CPU is generally never the bottleneck for most of the time. Infact I would have gone with i3 2100 but my work requires a quad and oodles of RAM.

any recommendations on the board though? The system would also be running linux so compatibility with that is also essential. I heard ASUS boards were having trouble with linux compatibility...

If you are not gonna OC your CPU, then why are you wasting a good 0.8k. Go with i5-2500 instead. But i would suggest you to stick with i5-2400 at 9.2k as i5-2500 costs 1k more for just a mere 200MHz more.
So, save the remaining 1.8k and get a good H67 board instead. But IMO there is no such issue with Intel DH67BL.
Let, others who have this board or know this board comment. But PM our forum member 'sorcerer' to help you in this thread.

I second the suggestion regarding i5-2400, go for Asus H67 mobo instead.

Agree.
I have bought Intel DH67BL with i5-2500. No issues as such!
Don't go for i5-2500k if u wanna go for H67.
Also go for i5-2500 only. It rocks!
