Most p67 boards will net you 4.4 to 4.6 to on good air cooling, maybe a bit higher on water. | Report abuse saint19 Motherboard Master Overclocking Master October 28, 2011 8:03:00 PM Hi. Those 5GHz are just lucky thing of only few CPU (batchs), but is almost impossible to know if you can get hose 5GHz on that mobo with that CPU, you only can know that at the overclocking moment. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Overclocking>How far will my mobo let me oc?> Related ressources: ForumHow far could I O/C the 3570K ForumE6750 won´t let me oc higher than 343 mhz ForumGigabyte mobo will not let me OC 2600k ForumHow far can E6300 oc on stock cooling?
