P67 or Z68 for overclock?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I just wanna know which one is better for overclock? I am reading that from "TweakTown" review - If you're a P67 user there's really very little reason to move to this new chipset outside of you wanting to make use of Intel Smart Response Technology or Lucid Virtu. So, is there a better overclock with Z68? Or it isn't worth? I wanna listen your thoughts. Greetings!

I'm not moving to Z68 at all.

My P67 does all the overclocking I can possibly want. I have no interest in using the IGP, so I'm 100% good

They will give the same overclocking performance. And it is "Z68", not "X68". Z68 will give you only a handful of new features, most of them no one will ever use. Main improvements are usage of Integrated Video and SSD caching.

Yeah, I think so too! This means I am going to buy an ASRock P67 Extreme4.

I've just finished updating the P6x sticky with Z68 motherboards.

If you go over there, you'll see that almost every Z68 board has the same VRM (overclocking) power as its P67 brother.

That is, except for one ASRock board, which has less.

From that, I can only conclude that Z68 will overclock exactly on par or slightly less than P67.

chipsets arent a major determining factor when looking at overclocking ability
