Suggest needed for Processor and Mobo


Gadget Freak
Please suggest me only processor and motherboard (AMD system). This week my 5 years old Desktop just went kaput. processor Intel core i7 2600K's connector got burnt out dunno the reason had Cpu cooler. Had Coolermaster V6Gt cooler, Corsair GS700 SMPS and APC 1.1KVA Ups and never overclocked the processor. How the hell did this happened :(

Ans: Locally, Kolkata

11. Anything else which you would like to say?

Don't know about AMD but if you're not willing to spend anything more than Rs 8000,you should consider sticking with intel:

Pentium G3240 :Rs 3780
Asus H81 M-D:Rs 3869

Amd does have a few cpus in the sub 5k segment but i think they're rather underpowered as compared to intel's offerings within the same price bracket.Therefore i reckon going for intel would be a better idea.

How did the processor get burnt? :scared_NF:
See if you manage to get a 2nd hand 2nd/3rd gen i5/i7 processor around 4-5k. That would be better IMO.


Chosen of the Omnissiah
Intel Core i3 4150 -7000,
Gigabyte B85M-D3H -5500.
TOTAL -12,500.

Increase your budget and get the above setup. As the i3 has 2 real & 2 virtual cores its considered to be Quad Core. So go with it.
