Re: budget mobo for i5 2500K

As a owener of biostar TZ68K+ mobo, i can tell u this mobo is great at it's price. Biostar offers 3 years of worrenty. Mid oc won't be any issue at all. But u need to buy an after market cooler before oc. Cooler like CM hyper 212 evo would be great.

Re: budget mobo for i5 2500K

how about the after sales and RMA on biostar. My concern is about the probability of a defective piece and if any what could be the RMA time.. and did u face any space crunch while mounting 212 evo with the ripjaw X and the GC on this board?? how good is the board space??

ATX form factor h67 or z68 mobo b/w 5k to 9k

I want to buy a mobo which supports all the 2nd generation core i5 and core i7 processor. It should have solid build quality and should have enough overclocking potential for RAM, CPU, and GPU. It would be good if it supports ivy bridge processors. My budget is 5k to 9k. Linking a review of the mobo in reply would be appreciated.

Re: ATX form factor h67 or z68 mobo b/w 5k to 9k

only a P67 will come in that budget..
only two Z68's i can see...
Flipkart: Intel DZ68DB Motherboard: Motherboard
Flipkart: Biostar TZ68K+ Motherboard: Motherboard

although i would tell you to increase your budget and get this
Flipkart: ASUS P8Z68-M PRO Motherboard: Motherboard

but asus p8z68 m pro is a micro atx card. Is it suitable for overclocking ram, cpu and gpu(with an after market cooler for cpu). Are there any disadvantages of the micro atx boards ?

ATX and Micro ATX are just form factors.

ATX is big. Micro ATX is small and hence has less expansion slots.

this is a hypothetical question so in other words better to get gigabyte z68 mb or msi even if they have loop problem since asus after sales service sucks

See, if something happens to the motherboard while shipping if you bought online from a dealer. You should be contacting the dealer and courier will be the one to blame.

No company's support (Asus/Gigabyte/MSI) will help you out in this case. It's the dealer's/courier's fault and you'll have to sort it out with the dealer.

what if the damage was from supplier to dealer after all any damage shown to pakage while
receiving from dealer can always be sent back to dealer and refund claimed within 15 days
according to indian consumer laws
but if was damaged during international to india one can only spot it after opening the package
