Gigabytes H61m-D2H overclock Intel i5 2500k

Hello Everyone.


I have recently purchased a Intel i5 2500K processor.

I have been reading lots of post online about how you can overclock your processor, but I am not sure if I am able to overclock on my current motherboard.

My system specification are:

CiC Mars red 750W - Pc case
4GB ram 1333MHZ - RAM
1TB hard drive -
Gigabytes H61M-D2H-USB3 - Motherboard.
Intel i5 2500k - Processor - stock fan

Is there any chance, I can overclock my CPU on this system?

Thanks a lot.

  1. Nope, not with a H61 board. P67, Z68, Z75, or Z77 are your options for overclocking.
  2. Ok.

    Thank you so much for the quick reply. This forum is the BEST :)

    How about a little overclock?

    Unfortunately not. No CPU overclocks at all on a H61 board.

    And you're welcome. Sorry for the bad news, though. :(

    Guess I will have to change my motherboard.

    Anyway thanks a million.

    Have a great evening. :)
