Hi, does anyone know how to contact the department of BIOS writer, where I could suggest to implement the undervolting feature for future update? I'm aware that Intel apparently does not like users to tinker with certain settings, but as a user I do not like to be patronized. I want to decide on my own whether to accept the risk or not. Many other poeple made positive experiences with undervolting.
► I wonder why this mainboard still uses 3-phase VRMs and liquid electrolytic over solid capacitors, although it uses capacitors with polymeric electrolyte for critical knots such as processor voltage regulator circuitry.
► I wonder why it uses an AMI BIOS with standard text interface instead of a modern UEFI BIOS.
► Is this motherboard only supposed to work together with a push-pin CPU cooler like the default one?
I ask because there seems to be a problem when using a CPU cooler with backplate.
Here is a picture of DH67CF's rear where this chip (circle) gets in the way:
This is a picture of a typical backplate:
That chip could prevent the DH67CF to be used with a backplate as can be seen here (different mainboard):
My questions is whether anyone can confirm that this kind of problem is still existing?
Thank you very much in advance
I had a similar problem. I'm using a cooler called Panorama from Alpenföhn.
And how you can see on this picture I had to shape the backplate on 3 of the 4 corners. I was a bit angry about this but when I see your problem I agree that I was lucky with mine ;-)
Perhaps you could try to take some washers to get a certain distance to the board.
Ok, I have just ordered this board for 112,55 Euro.
The price has plunged down to 99,90 Euro just a few hours after I placed the order.
Well, I hope I won't have problems using Dual Screen configuration as extended desktop.
And if there is going to be a backplate problem which can't be resolved by using washers, this board will go back.
Gigabyte's GA H67N does have neither, Dual Screen nor backplate problems.
Plus the BIOS allows ► u n d e r v o l t i n g
That's a big advantage in my eyes.
Hi, have received this board yesterday. The good news is that a (Titan) cooler with backplate does fit alright despite the chip on the backside being in the way. One corner of the backplate is a little put under pressure onto that chip by one of the four screws. It's not 100% perfect but I'd say almost.
Regarding the dual screen configuration I have to come back on that later as the system has not been set up yet.
