Intel DP67BG - New Bios with New Overclock Assistant Feature! Easy OC

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
WOW! I just got done installing the new bios 2040 for the DP67BG and there's a really cool new feature under Performance called "Overclock Assistant". I just got my 2500K to 4.5GHz and all I had to do was to enable the Overclock Assistant and manually pick what CPU speed I wanted and what RAM speed I wanted and that was it! The choices for CPU speed range from 3.8 to 4.5GHz and the RAM options are: default, 1600, 1867 or 2133. I picked 4.5GHz for the CPU and picked 1600 for my RAM as that is what the default speed is for it anyway. Maybe later I will try and increase the RAM speed and see what results I get. Once I saved the settings and restarted the PC and it took no more than a minute after Windows started until I was sitting at the desktop with my CPU overclocked to 4.5GHz! I couldn't believe how easy and fast the whole process was. I have done some quick testing with Intel Burn Test and, according to CPUZ, my core voltage ranged from 1.392 to 1.400 when stressed and my temps were no higher than 68C. That is with the Intel Burn Test set to Maximum (plus I have a CoolIT Vantage watercooler - keeps my 2500K cool!). I am really happy with this new bios and I can't wait to try and see if I can get my CPU to 5GHz.

Hey how are you liking the board so far? I have ordered it and it's on the way.
This overclock assistant feature has me intrigued. Is the OC stable?

I got the board way back in early February - before the recall. I never had an Intel board before (previously used ASUS, MSI and Biostar). I have to admit the reason I got the board was for the cool lighting effects. The skull looks great in a windowed PC case...plus it has a plethora of LEDs on it...looks like a lit Xmas tree!

The newest BIOS is great and my 4.5GHz OC is rock solid. It took all of maybe 30 seconds, after I enabled the OC Assistant feature, to be at the desktop with the OC settings applied. Previously I tried using the Intel Extreme Tuning Utility to get my 2500K overclocked and it literally would take hours before it would come up with a reliable OC. It wasn't even a high OC..I think it got it to 4.3 or 4.4. I know my 2500K can go higher than 4.5 but I am perfectly happy with the performance I get...plus it was the easiest OC I have ever done - thanks to the new OC Assistant.

The DP67BG might be the best board at its price.

That sounds awesome. I'm definitely gonna need that feature since I've never overclocked manually before.
I looked up some vids of this motherboard powered up, and it seems that there are both red LEDs and blue ones on board. Can you tweak around with the BIOS and enable only the red ones? My case will be lit up in red, so I was hoping this mobo fits that theme

What version of bios are you using to overclock?
I updated my bios pasa 2040 but could not overclock in the bios (manually) and not the Intel Extreme Tuning Utility. Could you help me?
