I need to know if you guys think I will be able to get 4.2 - 4.5Ghz with this board listed below with a 2500k. Thank you for helping me out.

Also, what kind of features will I be able to use with the Z77 board if im using sandybridge???

As far as I know you can use all the new features but PCI-E 3.0. Not sure though (correct me if I'm wrong)

Yes you should be able to OC to 4.5 easily with an aftermarket cooler.

I don't think the problem is with the cooler, I think that larger problem is whether or not the 5 power phases able to supply a constant voltage to the CPU without failing. Personally i don't think it will be an issue as long as you stay very close to stock voltages. SO keep voltage to a max of maybe 1.25v and you should be safe with that board.

Well, I agree with you that the voltages have to be kept close to the stock but that should be doable.

Overclocking to 4.5GHz on the stock cooler won't work out.

I changed board to this: ( 6-phase power ) ASUS P8P67-M PRO (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

450

and this cooler: SilenX EFZ-92HA2 92mm 3rd generation fluid dynamic bearing Effizio CPU Cooler

225

and the power supply: Diablotek PHD Series PHD550 550W ATX12V V2.2 Power Supply

225

and this has a single 12V rail pushing 36A. 80% efficient

What do you guys think about this??? I think this should work for a 24/7 clock around 4.2 - 4.5Ghz...

thank you, its for a client though.


Also, I am getting him a 60GB SSD and a 500 gb 7200rpm sata 6gbps HDD too. Should I use the ssd solely for the OS install and main programs or should I use intels quick sync or whatever it is to use the ssd as caching???

What kind of tricks can i do with the sandybridge chip and p67 chipset???

Thanks for all the help guys...

actually i just realized that that board doesnt support any graphics so I have to change. What do you think of this. Which of the two should I pick. Which one has more features. Does the z68 chipset still have all the same features like fast response or any sata features or any other features????

Please let me know which you think I should go with.

ASUS P8H67-V (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel H67 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

225

or ASUS P8Z68-M Pro LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

225

The z68 board has more power phase but the h67 board supports higher ram speeds.

I am not sure what else is different between these boards. Can you please clarify this for me. What does the h67 have that the z68 doesn't??? whats the rev 3.0 mean too???

Thank you for all your help and time.

The main differences between h67, and z68 is t hat h67 is a locked chip set, and you will not be able to overclock an unlocked CPU. For Sandy Bridge, RAM speeds do not really matter as 1600mhz only provides a marginal performance increase over 1333mhz.

Gen 3 merely signifies that the board has undergone a revision to fix Intel's Couger Point SATA bug which caused deterioration of the SATA II 3gbps link over time.

Since you are using a i5-2500k in you build, and are planning to overclock, the Z68 chip set will be the better choice as not only does it have more phases to provide a more stable overclock, but you have the ability to change the multipliers freely. I'm not sure if that cooler will be able to effectively cool an i5-2500k at full load though. If the case can fit one, you might want to consider a Cooler Master Hyper 212+

P8Z68-M Pro

Z68 allows RAM overclocking. H67 only allows up to 1333 MHz in Sandy, 1600 MHz in Ivy. 4.2 to 4.5 GHz is very conservative overclocking, any P67 or Z68 motherboard is capable of it, so long as you don't get a tud chip. Even without K series i5 and i7 CPU can partially up its multiplier by 4x (400 MHz boost). CPU cooler you have linked is no good. Hyper 212+, Enermax Silence, or Sunbeam Twister is a far better choice.

And get rid of that Diablotek PHD Series really fast. Diablotek produces nothing but junk PSU, most people don't realize it because they didn't push their PSU hard enough. I assure you that PSU will fail somewhere around 200 W. For budget wise Rosewill Green 430 W or Corsair CX430 is the way to go.
