I've recently upgraded my motherboard, RAM and CPU to;
CPU; i5 2500k
Mobo; Asus P8B75-V
RAM; Corsair 2x 8gb @ 1333mhz (Meant to be 1600mhz but apparently capped by the CPU)
And I simply cannot increase the multiplier for this. I've found the option in the bios to increase it, but it's capped at 33x (3.3ghz is default clock speed). Asus AI Suit paired with TurboV Evo doesn't have the option to increase the multiplier, only the BCLK frequency (Which I can only get to 106mhz stable (up from 100))
I've read a lot of guides on overclocking but once it gets to increasing the multiplier, I just can't continue.
-Updated my bios to the latest version, but that hasn't helped.
I've a custom cooler so I should be able to reach 4.2ghz and still keep temperatures at around 50 degrees celcius max.
Yeah, it's definitely misleading. It can be done (RAM overclocking with the X.M.P. profile), BUT only with an Ivy CPU.
I'm pretty sure CPU multiplier overclocking is out across the board, though. B75 was meant as a business platform that was never meant to be overclocked with. That's one of the reasons why it's cheaper.
Could you work out an RMA exchange for a motherboard you can overclock, it seems a shame to waste what the 2500K can do?
Most all are easily reaching 4500mhz with the 2500K overclocking the multiplier.
If you have a stand alone discrete graphics card this is about the same price as the motherboard you have.
Motherboard wise you have plenty of options if you went the RMA route if it is possible, however since you made this mistake already, Stop!
I suggest you list all your specs and intentions and allow us to guide you to the proper motherboard for your needs as my ASRock motherboard suggestion only sports a PCI-E 2 graphics slot and you may have a PCI-E 3 graphics card?
Or you may not have a discrete GPU at all and will need a motherboard that will allow you to run the CPUs GPU and the P67 will not.
I think I'll stick with this board for a while and shove it on ebay in a few months time. Pretty disappointed at the misinformation for that item... If I didn't need a computer so badly for the next few weeks It'd be getting mailed back to them tomorrow.
