the Intel LGA 1155 motherboard thread

I'm planing on a rig setup for a close friend and i've decided most of the parts already. The rig will be for some mid resolution gaming, photo editing and web surfing.

My main confusion is which particular motherboard i should pair up with either the i5-2320 or i5-2400. I'm decided on RAM, cabinet and PSU.

My choice of GPU is limited to either HD6770 or HD7750, both nearly equal in price.. Any advice would be highly appreciated :)

one ques please help..
is overclocking necessary to get the full juice of i5 2400 or i3 2100 .. you said that they cannot be overclocked but i saw somewhere that we have to unlock the cores after buying.. and that the cores are not all working and unlocked when you buy them..
please help..
you're talking non-sense. :)

Nor you can "unlock" i3-2100/i5-2400. Nor you can "overclock" them.

^^Souro_Ray is purchasing i5 2400/2320 too. Hope you saw the couple of motherboards I suggested there. There's no separate motherboard for mastercool8695 & Souro_Ray:wink:

^^As both are H67 based, performance wise there's no difference. So connectivity options will be the decisive factor. I'd say Intel DH67CL.

I'm leaning towards that board as well. No service issues in the city, i guess? Also, how is that board, quality and build wise? Feature wise it looks pretty packed! One of the few H67 boards with 4 dimm sockets :)

Just went through the specs of ASUS P8Z77-M at flipkart. It's good for the price I guess. 4 RAM slots, Internal USB 3.0 header and OC'ing support as well right?

BMG ftw!!
Isn't it the time when we stop suggesting unlocked Intel processors with Z68 boards (nobody here suggests P67) and start suggesting specially i5-2400 along with any good H67 board, specifically for mid-end configuration. The main reason behind is the fact that supply of AMD Phenom II processors are running out and only some specific models are there in the market, and at any condition they will be out of stock in 2-3 months (at max) :unsure:
