bin h67 for p67/z68?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
i currently have the h67 board in sig, ever since i bought it an realised i cant overclock i have been looking to replace it, however without a gpu i couldn't.
I plan to buy a 1gb 6950 soon, and i have been coping so far on integrated by only playing the sims and runescape. However i do plan on improving my gaming library which is why the 6950 is coming in.
I have slowly upgraded my wants from a 5770 to 6850 to 6850 to then find a 6950 for only £170 on amazon and thought wow i want that instead! (i did the same when first planning going from amd dual core to quad to i5 750 to 760 to sandybridge) as you can see i change my mind alot and this is why i ended up rush buying the h67 without researching as i wanted to build my comp there an then and i couldnt afford a gpu so i bought the h67 without knowing it couldnt oc.
now i know i will probably never ever use the power of a 6950 which is why i have given up on the idea of xfire but will i need to overclock? should i overclock? would it be a watse to not overclock?
EDIT:forgot to even mention the fact that id be spending between £100-£150 on a p67/z68 board

if you have a K series chip then overclocking is something you are going to want to do. You could get the motherboard first, and get a z68 board so you get overclocking and onboard video at the same time.

Having a K series at stock speed will be a great shame, plus it is so easy to overclock these new chips, there is no reason to not overclock if you can.

if you paid for a 2500K cpu then it would be a crime not to OC ha ha
as thats the point of the K series chips.

If you dont need Virtue and SSD cache then got for a Asus P8P67 board or a MSI P67A-GD55.

yes i know, i did plan on overclocking to start with, but then i rushed into buying the h board without researching properly and ended up wasting £80-90 on it, i will probably end up going all out tbh but i just want to be able justify leaving the other motherboard in the corner to accumulate dust, i might upgrade my computer more and use spare parts to build my mum a computer.

Yes. Get a Z68 or P67 board instead. Will be a better board for OC'ing.
Depending weather you want SSD caching, etc, then you could make a decision based off of that.
ASUS P8P67 would be my choice, but then there is the MSI one above...

You could take the H board and buying some other hardware to make a low end server/media server/backup computer.
