Best OC Mico Atx for I5 2500k

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Looking for the best OC mobo for the SB 2500k. I just picked up the MSI H61M-E23 and the overclocking feature only allows me to increase to the turbo boost of 3.7. I know these SB's can go much higher than 3.7 on air. I'm running a thermal take armor A30 so it has to be a micro atx mobo. all help would be greatly appreciated.

you need a p67 board to full overclocking for sandy bridge

I have the ASUS P8P67-M PRO motherboard, and it's been working well for me

The P8P67-M Pro is the only mATX board you can have any effective OCing on. The H series chipset doesn't allow overclocking other than the GPU or turbo boost.
