That board is a socket 1156 with the QM57 chipset, it will not support the i5-2520m.They'd better since I bought just the board from this guy and a i5-2520m.
That is a sick deal the quads are very expensive. RAM as well. I wish these combos had been available. Instead of I have a stack of boards and i5s.How much does the Core i5 and memory cost today? Advantech Aimb 272 Main Board with i7 2710QE CPU and 16GB RAM Mini ITX | eBay
That one has 16gb and a core i7 already.
I have a 272 now and was actually wondering the same thing. Right now it's just sitting on padding and an antistatic bag.For those that have bought either the 270 or 272, what type of case did you use? I see it has a slot of the back of the motherboard and just wanted to know if that caused any kinds of issues.
I got a 272 and like @Patrick said, according to Intel, these processors have the memory controllers onboard and they support up to 16 GB...meaning it would have to be 8GB per slot as I'm pretty sure these mobile boards do not have more than 2 SO-DIMM slots.So the specs on the 272 say it supports 8gb max but that guy is selling one with 16gb. Anyone who got their board already can confirm it works with a 8gb so-dimm ?
I'm also interested in what cases you guys are using for them.
