P8P67-M ... unlocked multiplier?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,

I just purchased the P8P67-M motherboard instead of the H67 as I have a Intel Core i5 2500K processor and I am hoping to moderately overclock it (3.9 - 4.0 GHz would be fine).

I have been reading reviews online and some of them seem to indicate that you can not adjust the CPU multiplier? Can anyone confirm this for me?

Thanks in advance

I'm pretty sure you have full overclocking ability with that board and a K-version processor.

yes, the P67 chipset is the one that supports the unlocked multipliers. And since you have a 2500k, you're all set to go (note that you need a discrete gpu as the P67 chipset doesn't support the IGP)

P8P67-M won't allow you to change the multi afaik. Why ASUS did this is beyond me.

if you have a K version cpu it will allow you to change turbo multiplier same as pro version does. what i found to be a problem was multiplier would drop , revert to stock multiplier under load conditions. now there is a program called throttle stop i am wondering if it would have stopped that nonesense for me . i returned it before ever trying throttle stop so will never know if it would have resolved that issue i had with this board.
