View Full Version : Overclocking of any sort on Intel H67

05-07-11, 03:29 PM
I'm posting this because I have yet to figure out an answer to this. Is there any way at all to get more speed out of a Core i5 2500 on -any- of the H67 motherboards?

- FSB increase?
- multiplier increase if it's a K processor?
- Turbo mode to go from 3.3 to 3.7 ?

Are any of these available on any currently available H67 motherboard.

Thank you in advance for your answer.

If it is a K 2500K or the 2600K ,all you have to do is increase the multipler and some voltage increase,and if it is not a K then just uping the frontside buss is a lot harder then it was with a i7-920.

As Slawter said, H67 locks out overclocking all together. Z68 will be worth it if you need or want it's extra 2 main features over P67, otherwise it's the exact same silicon as P67 with no performance advantages except for the SSD caching and use of the iGPU alongside a discreet card.

If the 2 main Z68 features don't mean anything to you, then P67 will show to be a better cost alternative. Z68 boards will command a premium over P67 boards for sure.

One major point to consider, P67, H67, and Z68 all come off the same wafers. All share the same chipset revision schema and are all currently at B3, including the about to launch Z68. The only time multiple models of the same architecture share a revision number is when they're all coming off the same wafer and the difference amount to a few laser strokes and a firmware change to reflect those cuts.
