That's one of the caveats with Mini-ITX. Limited overclocking. I'm surprised it was able to run the i7-875K at all. Your best bet is upping the multiplier and just aiming for a stock voltage overclock.

The Gigabyte GA-H55M board is a better overclocker than the Zotac, and even the Gigabyte couldn't push quads very far.

You do know that the C-E officially supports Lynnfield Core i7s, right?

So Zotac released another H55 M-ITX board? I don't keep up with their products anymore after several disappointments.

You were thinking of their first revision "A-E" board. The OP mentions the revised "C-E" version (which is the one I have and it is scores above my old DFI MI-T36)
