H61 + K series CPU

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Ok, here's a question.

For P67 boards, we overclock the k series chips using the turbo multiplier. Very different than what we were used to.

The general information that has been available said that the P67 boards were the only ones that could be used for overclocking the k chips.

I've been reading the manuals of a couple of new H61 boards, specifically the Asus P8H61-M LE and the Asrock H61M-VS.

Each manual specifically talks about changing the non-turbo CPU multiplier. My experience with the P67 boards told me that you had to overclock the 2nd gen chips with the turbo multi.

But wait! You can turn off the turbo on the H61 board! Does it then use the non-turbo multi?

So is this a (very) cheap alternative to P67 for oc'ing the K chips? No video card needed?

Anyone else reading this the same way as me?

maybe it refers to the normal "turbo boost" (32x -> 34x) ..

you can still turn that on/off, but not change the multiplier value

Why would you go with a x67 chipset if you're looking to cheap out? Just go with the P67 and get a GFX card.

You may very well be right...

On the K series chips, is it only the turbo multiplier that is unlocked? Or is there only one multiplier?

Hmmm... this requires more investigation...

EDIT: Sales literature talks about 'fully unlocked multipler' rather than turbo multiplier...

Talking about the H61 chipset, not whatever it is you're talking about...

AFAIK there is only one multiplier and it is the only way to overclock. It is locked on H chipsets. Turbo is just an option much like hyperthreading.

The option on these boards to mess with the CPU multiplier is under the CPU power managment.

Turbo can be turned off by disabling the speedstep.
post #8 of 16
you can use different multiplier values per core, and increasing base clock by a tiny amount is possible but pointless.... but yeah, P67 + Kseries is required for a real OC

I know I don't own that H61 motherboard. I, myself, own a p8p67, so I know where the cpu multi is on that mb.

BUT I have the manual right in front of me for the board I'm talking about (P8H61-M LE), and the CPU multiplier adjustment is under CPU Power Management.

Ofcourse, this is not the point I'm arguing... I'm saying it looks like you can up the multiplier in the efi/bios on that (and other) H61 board.

Not possible on H67, but H61 - it kinda looks like it..
