Introduction

It’s no secret that Intel’s Sandy Bridge processors are overclocking giants, commonly reaching speeds of up to 5GHz on air. Of course, it’s only the unlocked “K” series processors that can truly be pushed to such loft speeds for the LGA1155 platform. However, not all consumers are enthusiasts, and not everyone aspires to overclock their CPU. Truth be told, there is considerable power under the hood in the H67 chipset for those who may not need discrete graphics and overclocking giants for killer gaming rigs, for example.

For those people and uses are the non- “K” suffix processors, the locked variety, that still promise strong performance and better pricing as well. Pairing up one of these chips with an H67 motherboard can be an attractive combination, and while this combination of locked CPU and integrated VGA support may not share the limelight like the flagship platform, they still hold a valuable place in the market.

Today we are looking at a roundup of five different H67 motherboards from ASUS, ASRock, ECS and Gigabyte. Remember there’s no overclocking here, but if you want something still powerful but less expensive, then this may be the course for you. Each of these motherboards are promising in their own right, but not all are created equal.

There’s a boatload of information to cover, so let’s dive in and see what ASUS, ASRock, ECS, and Gigabyte have to offer in this H67 motherboard roundup.
