    DQ77KB motherboard compatibility with core-i5 3570T processor


      I'm planning on using an Intel DQ77KB motherboard on a mobile robot I'm building. So I need to know the following things about the motherboard,


      Is the Intel DQ77KB motherboard ( http://ark.intel.com/products/59046/ ) compatible with the Intel core-i5 3570T ( http://ark.intel.com/products/65521/Intel-Core-i5-3570T-Processor-6M-Cache-up-to-3_30-GHz ) processor? the compatibility list of the DQ77KB motherboard does not include this processor, but it seems to be compatible with the motherboard according to it's specifications.

      I would also like to know the type of RAM socket in the motherboard, is it a SO-DIMM or DIMM socket?

      would, http://www.corsair.com/en/memory-by-product-family/laptop-memory-upgrades/vengeance-8gb-high-performance-sodimm-memory-upgrade-kit-cmsx8gx3m2a1600c9.html RAM be compatible with it.

      The hard disk drive I'm planning to use is a Corsair Force series GT 60GB sata 3 hard disk drive. I wish to know if this is also compatible.

      I would also appreciate it if you can give me a rough estimate of the power consumption of this setup of mine during idle and high performance states.

      thank you.

          Hello Lsuru89,


          I would like to inform you that the Intel Core I5 3570T processor should work fine with the DQ77KB motherboard. However it is very important to let you know that this specific CPU is a tray unit. 


          • Regarding the RAM, this motherboard uses SO-DIMM memory type.  The memory you are asking about should work on this system combination since the processor handles DDR3-1333 and 1600 Mhz.


          • About the power consumption, I was able to find the information for the motherboard, processor and SSD. The information about the RAM was not available.
          • The maximum power consumption would be around the 115W, in idle would be around 70W.


          • Remember, to take into consideration any additional peripheral.
