    Unhappy GA-P61A-D3 & 2500K intel OC options in bios not responding

    Hello People.
    Please i need advice,help...

    Yesterday i bought GA-P61A-D3 and putted intel 2500K (pure K,not another from serie)
    and now i have a problem ..
    default cpu clock ratio on board for this cpu is 33 now my problem is that bios on board F8 is not letting me set any value for the clock above 34
    on delivery board bios was F5 bios ,it was acting the same as current F8 bios from gigabyte site.

    Second Turbo boost doesn't work either ..In bios turbo boost shows that CPU speed is 3.6ghz but when i boot OS(win7 x64) i learn that its actually 3.4
    and no matter what i do i cannot boost CPU beyond that value..

    Please help?

    With (+ -) on keyboard bios accepts changes from 33 to 34 but not any higher,i can try to type manually value above that
    but it just gets reseted beck to 33


    PC has chieftek 850W Ntro napajanje.







    Advice Please?

    Errrr, you could have just asked.
    P67, Z68 boards can, but today better go with Z77/Z75/H77 which just came out.

    Overclocking is a hush hush thing normaly not mentioned by manufactors, and not supported by them.

    I just talked with my supplier and they accepted return of board.
    Now i need to know can this board be valid for OC?
    MB LGA1155 iP67 MSI P67S-C43 (B3), PCIe / DDR3 / SATA3 / GLAN / 7.1
    its board in same price range as mine.
    i haven't seen you mentioning H67 in your post?

    No. not H67 or H61 or B65 chipset overclock, only those I wrote.
    Haben't seen H77 or Z75 overclocked, but according to AnandTech they do
