Set the string height so the saddle is level and high enough to stop buzz.
The intonation length and the buzz are not related. The buzz is caused by string too low to the neck, period. You have to set height and then intonate for that height. Doing it the other way round never works. But there's one step first (two steps if you count getting the nut slots perfect) if the action is too high, you may need a fret leveling.
You need to begin from the start and set relief then height then intonation. It ain't rocket science but you need to do it right. Again if after running the proper routine your action is too high for your liking, you'll need professional fret work.
