Ordered the Intel DP67BGB3

I think I snagged the only available Intel DP67BGB3 motherboard from DirectCanada (sister site of NCIX and BestDirect) as moments after I ordered it, the item’s status went to “not available”. NCIX, NewEgg and BestDirect are all out of stock too. However, TigerDirect has the DP67BGB3 in stock albeit at a much higher price.

I should be getting the board sometime this week. I have the i7-2600K processor along with 16GB of Corsair DDR3 Vengeance memory dying to be used. The system will be primarily for application development, running virtual machines and day trading stocks on the side (a lot of technical analysis and charting).

  1. I did a lot of research on the DP67BG motherboard, and I was an early purchaser.

    I would be very cautious of ANY memory that runs above 1.5v on that (or any) Sandy Bridge motherboard.

    Just my 2 cents worth…


    1. Hi, thanks for the heads up! I think my memory is running at 1.5v (Corsair Vengeance series). Have you seen instability problems with higher voltage memory?
