Thanks for the help.
Enable all the power saving features. I have them enabled even though I'm overclocking. 5GHz is stable enough

The Asus Bluetooth app is useless to me. When I start it its just a blue screen with Asus logo.

I hit menu and select paired devices. It shows my PC but when I select it it instantly says connection lost. Any thoughts?

so now that i have determined that the p8p67-m is useless. i guess ill be buying a full size board. any suggestions? ive read all the posts. it looks like the p8p67 pro is getting the best results for overclock. the additional features like pcie slots, jmicron, and blutooth mean nothing to me. so pro, evo, or sabertooth?

goal: reliable overclock, good resale in a year when im done with it. i really am looking to get a board that i can get my 2500k in the high 4.x range on air. i may do the water kit from frozen cpu...thats like $150 or so...just to play with.

I AM NOT a GAMER...I just want a very fast workstation. however i really appreciate all the tweaks the gamers provide for every last ounce of performance

Thanks

I thinks its more on the chip with these boards. On my evo I'm at 4.8 ghz with 1.4v. Pro should be great though. Another Guy has 4.9 on the base p67

I noticed that my Asus P8P67 Pro boots straight into BIOs after a colde boot. Then, I have to press save and exit and the system boots. However, when I opt for "restart" from within Windows 7, system boots without any problems. Any ideas?

Cheers

Thanks for the info. So I will just set it to performance and make sure stuff like Lightspeed and C1E is enabled?

OK, I gotta ask, is anyone else's motherboard temp sensor (SYSTIN) completely broken?

Mine is currently reporting 123.0 oC and it's just staying at that constant.

Usually is says 29.0 or 30.0 and never changes.

Since overclocking is now multiplier based, you are much less bound by a good motherboard than previously. Any P67 motherboard should give you a good overclock.
