Choosing MB for OC'ing 2500K Tags: Motherboards Overclocking Last response: February 26, 2011 3:25 AM in Overclocking Share vkcelik February 14, 2011 5:37:17 PM Hello there Im about to buy a new computer for gaming and a little video editing. Im considering a system with a i5-2500K CPU which im obviously are going to overclock. The system comes with a Asrock H67M-GE as default. Should i upgrade that to a P67 PRO3 instead? I also have the option of choosing between a HD 6850 or GTX 460 GPU. Which one would you recommend?

Leaps-from-Shadows a c 107 V Motherboard a b K Overclocking February 16, 2011 8:51:39 AM The ASRock P67 Pro3 is an excellent choice. I've got my 2500K at 4.8GHz on that board. For graphics, I'd go with the GTX 460.

If you have the money, go with an ASUS P8P67 Pro or Gigabyte P67A-UD4. GTX 460 for GPU if you can't afford the GTX 560 Ti. z06psi February 16, 2011 3:06:35 PM +1 RickyT23 February 21, 2011 2:25:49 PM Consider the Intel BOXBG P67 motherboard, that one overclocks like hell! I have managed to get my 2500K up to 5Ghz with an MSI P67a-GD65. binoyski February 21, 2011 2:52:14 PM The potential overclock of the Sandy Bridge unlocked cpus will not depend on what mobo you chose. It will depend on how lucky you are on the specific cpu you got. Go to these site. http://www.hardocp.com/article/2011/01/03/intel_sandy_b... Wampbit February 21, 2011 3:05:17 PM None the less it is far easier to OC from the Asus bios, and the h67 mobos cannot overclock at all, so atleast a P67 mobo is required. As stated earlier I would suggest an Asus P8P67 PRO. binoyski February 22, 2011 2:18:55 PM Wampbit said:None the less it is far easier to OC from the Asus bios, and the h67 mobos cannot overclock at all, so atleast a P67 mobo is required.

Unlocked Sandy Bridge Cpus = P67 = It's a given if your an OC'er! binoyski February 22, 2011 2:23:14 PM And I think he's being sold, a p67 build that have the SATA II problem! He should ask for a discount! ace700 February 26, 2011 3:25:00 AM i would get the gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4 its good for overclocking Can't find your answer ? Ask !
