This is true, you can't really practically overclock the cpu and use a gpu card at the same time as there will be almost no heat sinks that wont block a pci-e lane that close. The only thing i can think of is watercool and well thats not air cooled.

First of all, because OC is damn fun and give you a performance boost where you need when your CPU is getting age.

H50 H70 would work just perfect with that :) Or, just mount like a 212+ on the other direction and it will work...Heatskink problem fixed yay:D

Don’t get me wrong…. I like the ocing of Windwithme , it’s show that he try and push this board, it give me confidence , and it’s why I order one. Now someone know if those Intel new GPU-CPU are good for HTPC, after all it’s what I intend to do with this board.

How about 6 minutes, 18 seconds and 469 milliseconds.
