Has anyone tried this Intel motherboard? Looking to use it with an I5-2500k. Has great specs, priced ~$115 (including shipping), LGA1155, H67 chipset, etc. Yet I can hardly find any info about it? Is this a hidden gem or am I missing something?
It's not really popular around here because it has the non-overclocker H67 chipset. Most review sites will also ignore most boards with that chipset.
Intel boards are fairly basic but good quality. If you want to use the 2500K's integrated graphics, it would be as good a choice as any. Just don't complain when you can't overclock like a P67 board can.
Thanks, LfS. BTW, I understand it's a non-overclocker H67 (I'm considering it for someone who cares more about the integrated graphics than OCing). It's just that there are quite a few H67 boards out there and they are mentioned and reviewed (with their pros and cons) pretty much like you would expect any other tech product on the market.
The reason why I asked the question is the total (and I really mean total) silence about this particular board. It isn't reviewed anywhere, it's only sold at very few places and it's not mentioned as an option for even, say, proposed low budget HTPC builds. After all, it IS an Intel product so I was expecting it to make just a bit more of a splash...
