H61 overclock possible?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if it's overclock a SB cpu on the H61 motherboards.

I already have a P67 and i7 k series CPU and want to get a H61 + regular series for a friend.

I'm not looking to overclock very much, just minor OC.

Is it possible to OC on a H61 at all?

No, OCing is disabled on the H67 boards, just put a non-K series in it and you will save money (a little)

very strange. For example you look at asus p8h61-m in overview they are speaking about TurboV which is for CPU
and here they are speaking about OC concerning MSI h61
Again the gigabyte h61 MB deal with OC


so how can it be if OC is impossible with H61? when you read these MB desctiptions, I understand you can ...

If it is definitively impossible to OC with h61. Is it possible to set up all core of the i5 2500 (non K one) to 3.7 Ghz , (the turboboost frequency). I guess it's not really an OC , right?

You can only adjust the BCLK on the h67 series. You're looking at 5% OC maybe 10% if your really lucky. You're pushing your luck with this type of OC. Adjusting the BCLK can will make the system unstable a lot faster than changing the multiplier and it won't compare at all to what you get on a p67 board.

No you can't alter how the turbo boost works on the h67 boards that's what why intel is selling the p67 and k series CPUs for.

But when I read for example the MSI h61m-e35 manual here (which has a H61 chipset), there is a chapiter for overclocking and at the page 3-11 , it's written that in the BIOS , you can adjust CPU ratio if the CPU allows it ...
Quote:
Adjust CPU Ratio
This item controls the multiplier that is used to determine the internal clock speed of the
processor relative to the external or motherboard clock speed. It is available only when
the processor supports this function
So is MSI scamming?? it's quite hard to beleive it , right?

Basically I understand that with a i5-2500k you can adjust the CPU ratio as this CPU allows it and so you can overclock it.
After is there a way to adjust the i5-2500 (non k) ratio according to the turboboost ? that is a mystery

I'd like to find out as well~~ anyone update on this?

Well... I just looked up the cheapest H61 board on the egg, the asrock h61m-vs. The manual shows the OC Tweaker screen in the bios.

Alright guys. This is kind of a big deal. People have been paying a premium for a p67 board, then have to buy a discreet graphics card just because they thought that's what they needed for ocing.

The manual for that CHEAP ($64.99!?!) board clearly talks about changing cpu multiplier on k series chips.

This is good info.

I have a h67 board (asus p8h67-m evo) and the multiplier is locked, so that cant be adjusted. Only thing that i can change is the integrated GPU frequency and the bclk frequency. And of course you can change voltages.

Im using this board for my HTPC/server, the board lately has been auto over clocking to around 3.8~ 4ghz which is about as high as it will go, but anyways i set it back to 1.6ghz to save power.

If you plan to OC an Hxx board you might run into a few problems; power to cpu and vrm issues from what i read (4-8 pin, a heavy oc would not have enough power) , also having a locked multi doesn't help eather. So these boards can OC lightly but they wont get you to far to be honest, they are to far limited and rely alot of the AI oc's.

I just bought an MSI H61 mobo and for some reason on the box it talks about overclocking... O_o
