I think overclocking headroom will come down to the board itself, not its chipset. If all your after is a basic every-day overclock, I wouldn't worry about an old board potentially holding you back. iceclock a b K Overclocking January 27, 2013 2:57:26 PM ive got the latest bios man-of-chalk, now just wondering what benefits id get from the z77 compared to the p67 plateform Related resources Z77 vs P67 - Forum GTX 660 VS HD 7850 - Forum 550 intel gaming pc - Forum Z77 vs P67 vs Z68 - Forum ASRock Extreme4 P67 vs Z77 - Forum Can't find your answer ?
