Asus P8P67 OC difference across range?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi,

Im new here and am going to build my first oc'd machine soon. I was looking at the Asus P8P67 range. I don't require SLI or loads of PCI-e ports, so was wondering if the lower end boards in this range (such as the P8P67-M) overclock just as well as the more mid/higher range ones (like the P8P67-M PRO or P8P67 PRO)?

I was hoping to overclock an i5 2500k to 4.5GHz with an Antec Kuhler H20 620.

Thanks!

Welcome to OCN!

Can't comment on the mATX series mobos, but a pro would do you well if you aren't looking too much at features but overclocks well. I'd look at the asrock boards as well.

Hi, and welcome to OCN ! Maybe you should check out my club - The Tiny Asus P8P67 Pro Owners Corner Club to see if that board may be something for you !

I can recommend it very much. A very nice board with all the features you'll ever need. Overclocks very nicely and are very stable. Also alot of other people have this board and will answer any questions you might have !

Good luck!

I understand it is a brilliant board for overclocking, but I feel its a bit too much when I don't require SLI, and only even need 1 HDD.
This is why I was hoping someone would say the cheaper P8P67s are just as good when it comes to OC'ing lol.

Put it this way, the p8p67 pro is a mid range board that punches above it's weight in overclocking. Yes the cheaper board can overclock but in most cases it helps to have the extra power phases of the pro and it usually oc's better

If you never need sli just get the cheapest one and pocket the saving, or spend it elsewhere on the build.

The pro does have the advantage of an Intel gigabit Ethernet port (as well as a realtek one)
