MOBO for i5 4670k?

Is the H81 chipset (GIGABYTE H81-D3) good for this processor & overclocking?

  1. Z mobos are the only motherboards for intel that support overclocking as far as I'm aware. I'd suggest an ASRock Z87 extreme3:

    Why Z87 and not H81?

    This is correct. You will not be able to go above the Turbo speed with the H81.

    I have the MSI Z87-G43 and it OC's to 4.6 GHz with ease. Great MB!
