ECS H67H2-M & H67H2-I Review

» Discuss this article (4)


On the H67 platform the CPU cannot be overclocked above the limits of the Turbo Boost 2 frequencies. However, the integrated graphics can be overclocked to provide a higher level of performance. To see if this was indeed true, I ran through a couple of games that can be played on the HD 3000 integrated graphics. Civilization V and Starcraft II are the games of choice. The graphics multiplier was moved from 22 to 30 and each game was retested to verify the increase in performance was relevant. While high-end settings offer better visuals, the HD 3000 graphics included in the Core i5 2500K can only push the envelope so far.


Testing Setup: Intel Core i5/i7 Socket 1155




Civilization 5 Settings:

  • DX 9
  • Low
  • Resolutions 1024x768,1280x1024,1680x1050




Starcraft II Settings:

  • Low
  • Resolutions 1024x768,1280x1023,1680x1050




While playing each of these games, the eye candy was turned down but the games were playable up to 1680 x 1050.
