Definitely

Yeah, that overclock isn't doing much with only 3 MB of on-die cache.

I searched a little and find that, the ASUS Mobo isnt good for overclocking.
So, can you send me in the right direction for good/150$ range mobo, so I can get 4ghz mark with the i5-2500k ?

You need to get a P67 or Z68 mobo for good overclocking. H6x boards do not have unlocked CPU multipliers iirc.

For $150 its kinda tough..

Not sure of your location but here are some decent boards for that price range

Asus:

ASUS P8P67 (REV 3.0) $159



Gigabyte:
GA-Z68X-UD3-B3 $144

GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 $169

MSI:

P67A-GD55 (B3) $154

All of them should have no problem pushing a 2500k to its max

Correct, that was established earlier. Now he has decided to purchase an i5 2500k and he is trying to select a board that is good for overclocking that processor.

I get a slight bottleneck with my athlon II x2 @2.8 with my 470 at stock, so i would guess that yes you have a bottleneck

It is really not off topic. After some discussion it appears you came to the conclusion that (for some applications), your processor will be a bottleneck. Now you are looking to replace it and are asking for advice.

Someone in this thread appears to have felt that I was trolling earlier, so I'll try to be more careful about the way I present an opinion. The E7300 does, in fact, have only 3 MB of cache. This does effect the ability of the chip to handle games that benefit from multiple threads.

As others have already pointed out, the H67 boards are not good for overclocking, you would want to look for a P67. I've heard that for the Sandy Bridge platform it is critical to make sure the memory is specifically listed as supported by the manufacturer for the motherboard.
