Intel DH61BE and DB65AL are two inexpensive LGA 1155 Sandy Bridge platform motherboards that recently became available in Pakistan. There are cheaper LGA 1155 motherboards available but these two motherboards stand out because they have support for the latest generation of peripheral device interfaces.
The question of which Sandy Bridge parts support overclocking keeps popping up on forums so I thought it best to write out a post explaining this subject.
Computer enthusiasts in Pakistan have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of B3 revision sandy bridge motherboards. These boards are unaffected by the cougar point chipset bug that stalled sales of older socket 1155 motherboards. We are now starting to see these bug free mainboards in Pakistani stores.
Intel’s recently released Sandy Bridge CPUs have gotten a good reception as far as CPU performance is concerned. But unfortunately for Intel, Sandy Bridge motherboards have a bug in them that was only discovered after they had been shipped. In this post I look at how the bug affects consumers.
