Is anyone aware of any issues/downsides of running a Sandy Bridge i5 2500K on an H67 board?
Some info for context:
- I'm planning on building a dual monitor, quiet, development rig.
- I have no plans to do any overclocking.
- I have no plans to do any gaming on the rig ( if that changes I'll add a dedicated card)
The reason I'm looking at the K CPU is that it comes with the 3000 version of the integrated GPU, rather than the 2000 on the other i5s. This is important to me because I want to take advantage of the H67 chipsets ability to support dual monitors using the integrated GPU.
Some downsides that I am aware of:
- The 2500K is a great overclocking CPU but by pairing with an H67 chipset I lose the abilty to take advantage of that
