    It's cheaper and easier to leave those traces off premium boards in favour of more USB / firewire / etc outputs? And don't forget that using H67 means that QuickSync (or whatever its called) will still be active so you'll get that super speedy video encoding performance that you don't get with a P67...

    OC the memory to 1600. It won't support it at default settings but should be able to get up to 1600 without much of a clock
