I'm pretty clueless when it comes to OCing CPUs. I know theres a base clock frequency, voltage and cpu multiplier when it comes to ocing. I've noticed that even though the motherboard is a H67, it has the option of changing cpu ratio.

linke here http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/ASUS-P8H67-M-PRO...

what i would like to know is is this the same as cpu multiplier? and if i get a K version cpu (like i5-2500k or the ivy bridge equivalent) will i be able to oc it to its maximum potential (provided i have a after market cooler)?

thx

Your CPU multiplier is locked at whatever the boost clock is for your CPU. Say you have an i5 3570K: It's 3.4 GHz with a boost clock of 3.8 GHz. Thus, you cannot raise the multiplier past 38.

Messing with the BCLK is not recommended, and chances are you won't be able to get it past 103.
