    Intel DH67CF - CPU cooler backplate problem

    Cov

      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
