Is my CPU right for my socket?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

A friend of mine wants to build a budget pc and I found a 2500k for a really good price. I offered him my old motherboard which is an intel DB75EN 1155 motherboard and I wanted to know if it is going to work with my mobo. I also heard that Sandy Bridge CPUS have PCI 2.0 Support and he is going to buy a 1650 SUPER from Gigabyte and I saw on a site that it won't be compatable. I just wanted to know for the compatability of my part selection for him. 

 

P.S I've never seen a motherboard have compatability issues with graphics cards but I may be wrong

 

Thanks in advance!!

Probably. Right socket and I don't see any reason for them to not have support in the bios.

It will work

PCIE is backwards and forwards compatible, meaning old cards can fit in new boards, old boards can support new cards. Of course at the slower of the two speeds, but it will be fine with this combo

The motherboard explicitly supports graphics via its PCIe X16 slot

The graphics card will still work, it's backwards compatible with PCIe 2.0.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

It shouldn't. The 2500k was one of the first processors released on that socket so it shouldn't even need a BIOS update (although that might not be a bad idea)

I dont think it will have a problem because I ran a 3570 in my old pc with that motherboard

You gonna be fine with this. 2500k is unlocked cpu btw but on this board you not gonna be able to oc it, and usually K version is a bit more expensive cos of this feature, you may get some luck finding i7 2600 for similar price but is not unlocked and have 4 extra threads

Will try to find but is the gpu compatability ok? I saw that the motherboard supports only up to 10 series but then 20 series on a site called pc specs, it did not mention 16 series support
