Good job. This is pushing me towards the Gigabyte Ud3P or UD4, although I am still tempted to go cheap and get the Biostar TP76XE...

So should C1E and EIST be kept enabled or disabled?

What about Turbo?

Nice post by the way, could only read some of it, I will finish reading later on this evening.

Tremendous job man. Let me ask something: I have an i7 920 @ 4.1 using 1.2 volts. Is a 2500k (shooting for a high 4 or 5 oc) worth it? The only game I would think I would see an appreciable difference is in WoW (at least given what I play), and even then only in very crowded areas where CPU clocks make a difference.

Also, do the H67 boards overclock?

Nice Review!!! I honest to god think that if my XSPC rasa block would fit socket 1155, I would go out and smack a 2600K with it.

Good to see that the HT of the 2600K didn't kill overclocking that was my biggest worry since the only previews of overclocking were on the 2500K.

Well the Gigabyte might be a more solid board, and easier to OC, but heck I think OCing is 95% in the chip, and 5% the motherboard maker doing Intel's design correctly, like SVID.

Well you want to turn those off, but early ASUS UEFI BIOS had a bug, and well UEFI ain't even close to perfect, but I think with ASUS you have to use Turbo Mode, I would turn off C1E and EIST if your BIOS allows for it. Earlier ASUS was giving away their boards like hotcakes, so all teh reviewers would use them in their reviews, the problem was they had some problems and so the reviewers said you ahve to do it this way and that way. i didn't use EIST or C1E or Turbo for anything. Just for testing wether multi goes crazy.

I heard H67 is non OCable, BUT fromwhat I have heard mobo manufacturers are getting them to OC, wait for someone to say yes it OCes to buy it.
I think its an upgrade, most chips if not all i have seen can do 4.5ghz. After Cpu PLL Overvoltage was added to all boards 4.8ghz was even easier.

Yea I tried with HT off and nothing was different, not even less voltage needed. but i am guessing at very high clocks you can turn it off as well as cores to get high clocks.

My water block had variable fitings, and it worked, you can probabaly buy a 1156 or 1155 kit to adapt.
