The top part of the H67 chipset is covered by a black heat sink with a larger surface area for heat dissipation

BIOS screen
M.I.B III, ECS overclocking technology
This page provides adjustable voltage options. DDR3 1T/2T with the current CPU clock / DDR3 capacity / voltage status
CPU Voltage +20 to 320mV
IMC Voltage +10 to +630 mV
DIMM Voltage -800 to +630 mV
PCH Voltage 1.05/1.10V

ICC options page

Provides front side bus (FSB) options: actual tests show it is impossible to boost FSB
I hope that later BIOSes can display options here

DRAM timing information
Intel default GPU overclocking options
When overclocking, we recommend that graphics current be set to max
The clock is set for a default of 22 at the graphics core ratio limit
Each level represents a clock of 50MHz: in the figure, the setting is 27 or 27 x 50 => 1350MH

IGD Memory has three options, namely 32/64/128MB
For DVMT / FIXED Memory, there are three options: 128/256MB/Maximum

PC Health Status

In the past, most Mini ITX systems did not emphasize performance or overclocking, so the BIOS used a reduced instruction set
With the H67H2-I, the BIOS options are more abundant, but if an option can be added to switch between DDR3 1066/1333, it will be better

Test platform
CPU: Intel Core i3-2120
VGA: Integrated Graphics
POWER: Antec HCG 400W
Cooler: Intel installed heat sink
OS: Windows7 Ultimate 64bit

The CPU is the Core i3 2120 that was just recently introduced in March
The product name is the Intel Core i3-2120 with a system clock of 3.3GHz
The actual two cores have Hyper-Threading technology with a capacity of up to four threads that is referred to as 2C/4T
32nm process, power 65W, L3 Cache with total of 3MB, as second entry-level LGA 1155 with dual core CPU

Lower left corner is Revision D2 version back column
Top right is the original heat sink, and for their dual cores CPUs, Intel always uses a non-copper based design

For the Sandy Bridge architecture, there are two Core i3 models on the market, namely the i3-2100 and the i3-2120
The main difference between the two models is the clock, which for the 2100 is 3.1GHz, and for the 2120, it's 3.3GHz
For consumers, we feel the i3-2100 provides better price to performance value
