Not so much a design flaw as a deliberate attempt to line up their pockets. Companies will be companies...

But as for longevity.. K series CPU and P67 motherboard will be a combo that could potentially last you quite a while in terms of performance. Sure it costs a little extra, but even if it's power savings alone it should be a worthwile investment IMHO.

now THAT is a way of looking at it.... do you think there a way to mod it to work differently, ex:modded bios, software overclocking in windows, etc...

I doubt it, that's what Z series chipset is meant to offer.

Intel specs suggest that you can OC up to certain level using Turbo with non-K CPU with current P67 motherboards... but I have yet to see anyone post such a thing.
