Hello guys i am planning to get a custom gaming build pc in the near future . i will be using the i7 2600 * No k * version as my cpu . here is the build am going to use >

CPU =i7 2600 * no k version * from my previous pc
GPU =I am planning to run SLI 2 way GTX 560 ti or GTX 570
Case = Coolmaster Decent Case
CPU cooling = Cool Master V8 or Corsair H80 for CPU cooling still i dont know what is better
Mobo = p67 lga 1155 motherboard still searching for decent one that have decent overclocking potential and have long term stability and can run sli if anyone have an advise here it would be really appreciate it cause my eyes are bleeding from looking for thousands types and debates and arguments from newegg.com
PSU =Crosair 850 TX

My Questions are =

If i get 2 way GTX Cards 560 ti or 570 , will my i7 2600 non k version bottleneck them ?

If anyone has a decent p67 motherboard that have decent overclocking potential and can stay alife for long time like 2 years and you have it or you experience with it please recommand me and i will be very grateful ?

dont tell me to sell i7 2600 and get the K version cause i have tried and it seems no hopes .

No, a 2600 will not bottleneck 2 x GTX 560 TIs or a GTX570. Not even close.

Non K version has locked multiplier. Therefore, you can't hope for high overclock. I believe you can only achieve Turbo speeds (3.8 GHz).

I don't think it will be much of a bottleneck though unless you run at low resolutions. What is your monitor resolution BTW?

Why are you looking for a MOBO for a decent overclocking when your CPU i7 2600 non K cannot be overclock? Well not unless you might want to change your CPU in the future when Ivy Bridge CPU will be release on Spring or Summer this year. I suggest you buy a Z68 chipset MOBO LGA 1155 socket so that you can upgrade your CPU in the future when Ivy Bridge CPU comes.
