Overclocking and Test System Specs

Overclocking Results:
Stock Max. OC
CPU Multiplier: x33 x46
Motherboard BLCK: 100 MHz

103 MHz

If you're new to Overclocking and not sure what to do, check out these two excellent Guides for some pointers:
Overclocking the CPU and Memory
Overclocking the Videocard

Owing to the greater number of things integrated onto the die of Intel's 'Sandybridge' Core i5 processors, these LGA1155 CPUs don't react well to overclocking via motherboard BCLK adjustments. Hard core overclockers HAVE done it, but it's far more effort than it's worth in our opinion.

The ASUS P8P67 Pro motherboard offers a full range of CPU overclocking controls for those with the time and determination to push some really high numbers. Voltage controls in particular, are the speciality of the P8P67 Pro motherboard.

In any case, PCSTATS started off with a default x33 multiplier and pushed the test Intel Core i5 2500K CPU to x46 multiplier without much effort. Usually the Core i5 2500K chip PCSTATS tests with can handle x47 out of the gate, without voltage tweaking, but as we've seen with a couple other Intel P67 based motherboards the P8P67 Pro wouldn't go beyond x46. A maximum overclock of 4.6GHz is very good.

The ASUS OC Tuner software takes a slightly different approach to overclocking, so we also gave it a try. OC Tuner overclocked both Bclk and the CPU multiplier to achieve a more conservative boost in speed. Where PCSTATS overclocked manually to 4.6GHz, the ASUS OC Tuner software chose 103MHz x (x39 multiplier) for a speed of 4.01GHz.

Inside the UEFI BIOS

The ASUS P8P67 Pro motherboard features a UEFI BIOS. The main overclocking controls for adjusting the CPU multiplier (and BCLK frequency) are found in the OC Settings page.

The BIOS has extensive memory control options, timings can be set down to the individual clocks cycle, per channel.

There are quite a few electrical settings that can be adjusted in the BIOS to help you achieve your best overclocking results.
