No. The H67 cannot overclock at all.

No, do not wait for Bulldozer or Ivy Bridge. And don't consider 1366 now unless you're doing higher end stuff that requires the tri-channel RAM, multiple x16 lanes, etc.

Sandy Bridge is hands down the best platform and group of processors available. Even 2500K and 2600K quads beat AMD's best performing hex-cores in 80%+ of real-world scenarios.

As for Ivy Bridge -- it's a die shrink of 1155 meaning you can buy a motherboard now, and drop in a new Ivy Bridge processor when they're released.

You'll want a P67 board though if you plan on overclocking. H67 boards won't allow it.

Ok so if only the P67 can overclock, what is a good P67 board? This is the cheapest one on newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130574
