Its just a cheap h61. Asus not sure the model off the top of my head. I don't think that has anything to do with it though.

It doesn't, its just that the H61 chipset doesn't support overclocking so having a 2500k (k series) chip is worthless unless you plan to get a different board to allow overclocking in the future.

GPU utilization seems about the same. It just seemed to average out the fps a little better with much less dips to the really low numbers. Not perfect for sure. But playable.
