Hello !


I'm planning to build a gaming PC with an Intel Core i5 2500k and a Geforce GTX 570. I dont intend on SLIing but I'll definitely be overclocking. These are my primary concerns.

Due to budget constraints, I was thinking of buying a H61/H67 chipset based mobo.

My question is, will the above chipsets support overclocking ? Since they're not-very-high-end boards, will they affect the overall performance of the CPU and GPU in any way ?

Are there any other things I need to look into when choosing a mobo with the above components apart from compatibility? :??:



 
If you buy H61/H67 chipset based mobo you can overclock your 2500k.
One of this will be good mobos :

this is almost the same but with a more vrm that mean you can overclock more your cpu : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138344
This is a good mobo : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157271
These are P67 mobos , the diference from Z68 is , these don't have SSD caching :

Thanks a lot !
But the problem is I live way out in India where ASRock hasnt made a major appearance as of now. Is it right that the product warranty doesnt apply anywhere outside USA and Canada if I buy from newegg ?
 

I believe you still get the manufacturer warranty.
 

They don't ship outside of the USA!

U can shop on Amazon, can't u?
