    Mostly correct, yes. In actuality H77 can overclock, it's just bad at it -> It won't let you increase the default frequency past the max turbo frequency and IIRC I don't think you can adjust voltages either (that might just be something that exists on boards I've used though, might not be a chipset thing).

    What deathy says pretty much sums it up: If you want to overclock you should definitely get a Z77 board (as H77 OCing is very limited and mostly pointless).

    EDIT: And according to google (I just looked it up) you also can't run multiple video cards with H77.
