I currently own the: DH67BL Board with an i3 2120, I wanted to upgrade to the i5 3570k, but when I check specs on my board on Amazon, It only says Support for 2nd gen, never mentions 3rd gen. But Intel says the 3570k is compatible with this board, So does that mean it is, and is there anything special I will have to do to get it to run it ? Im confused I thought cause its h67 chipset it won't be compatible ? I thought it had to be Z77, Maybe I'm wrong though, and won't need to upgrade my mobo after all.

Check the manufacturer's website to see if there's a BIOS update to support Ivy Bridge cpus.

Well its manufactuered by intel, If you click the Intel in the first message its a link to there website, So thats why I went to intel to check it out, it says there compatible with a certain bios, "0146" how do I know if my board is compatible with that bios, and if I upgrade to that bios with the i3 2120 in, Will it mess it up ?

My Bios Information:
DLH6710H.86A.0146
AAG10189-211

Intels states:
DH67BL
3rd Gen Ready AAG10189-211 or later
3rd Gen-Capable AAG10189-206
Transition to 3rd-gen Bios: BLH6710H.86A.0132
3rd-Gen Ready Bios Version: BLH6710H.86A.0151 or later

So does this mean my board will support 3rd gen, and all I need to do is upgrade to version 151 since I already have a newer version then the transition version ?

0146? I glanced at the latest bios update for that board, and it said support for 3rd gen cpus was added in 0151. It should retain compatibility with 2nd gen cpus, though there was a warning about not being able to revert to bios revisions older than 0151. Also, if you're looking at a 3570k, you should be aware that an h67 board will limit your ability to overclock it compared to using a z77 board.

Ya, I mean I will eventually upgrade the mobo, but for now I don't have the money, but I can afford a 3570k, but, if I upgrade to 151, from 146, I can then support the 3rd gens, and I don't have to do anything special correct ?

I'm not sure why you'd stop at revision 151 when 160 is the latest, but I think that would work. Unfortunately, I can't be sure because it's not something I've tried myself - I'm still running an i5-2500k on an h61 board with the original bios (technically uefi instead of bios, but w/e).

Yes it is compatible H67 is for second gen CPU's(Sandy Bridge) and also for 3rd gen CPU's(ivy Bridge) that will fit 1155 LGA, i3 2120 is compatible with an LGA 1155 socket motherboard, but you have to update the BIOS first.
