    Make sure to update the BIOS before putting in the Ivy chip, otherwise it wont work outright.

    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.
  2. ive got the latest bios man-of-chalk, now just wondering what benefits id get from the z77 compared to the p67 plateform :P
  3. The typical chipset stuff, I thought this was just related to overclocking potential.

    SATAIII, USB3 internal headers, PCI Gen 3 (its all 3's!), SSD caching options, integrated graphics support. Sure there's more but that's the notable stuff.
  4. im just asking for overclocking, but neverhurts to know the extras :P
