So the p8p67-M won't overclock?????

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I bought 2 of these boards, and now I've found that its extremely difficult to get any kind of overclock going. Am I out of luck, or is there something I can do. I've updated to 0408 bios.

You need a -k series processor to overclock meaningfully on any 1155 board. Otherwise all you do is raise the turbo multiplier a little bit (2 increments, if memory serves).

It's a 2500k -- but now I can't get into Windows. I get the dreaded blinking cursor at the top left.

mATX boards aren't particularly well known for overclocking. You should've got a full ATX if you planned on overclocking, most mATX boards have 4+1 phases...

I only bought this one because every p67 board(including Biostar) were all sold out. GodDAMMMITT!!!!!!

Oh well, I guess wait until biostar has the tp67xe back in stock. I got to 4.8 easily with my other sandy Bridge.

Thanks for that, but does this also apply to the non-pro version -- or were pro's having the same problem I am?

It looks like that thread is for the pro only. There's no 601 bios for the M vanilla version.

Just try manipulating the guide to your board and see how that works. Didnt know they made a non pro version of my board.
