I'm having some trouble shopping for a hardware upgrade while trying to stay within budget.
According to the specifications on their web page, the P8Z68-V LX provides the following CPU supoprt:
Intel® Socket 1155 for 2nd Generation Core™ i7/Core™ i5/Core™ i3 Processors
Supports Intel® 32 nm CPU
Supports Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2
However according to the product CPU Support List, the Core i5-3570K and other 3rd generation Intel Core processors are listed (note that the 3570K is 22nm).
Does this mean the board will support these processors? Full support or will there be a performance cap? Is a BIOS upgrade required?
I'd like to get the P8Z68-V LX along with a Core i5-3570K and some 1600 MHz DDR3s. The motherboard is a good deal for what I'm looking for, as long as it can support this CPU.
