Overclocking locked Intel Skylake CPUs is now possible

In overclocking circles, the notion has persisted that BCLK (base clock) overclocking might become a possibility in Skylake processors, but it would be up to motherboard manufacturers to circumvent Intel's restrictions. Last night Asrock contacted TechSpot to say it has an updated BIOS that enables this condition and we are told the website has further tested and confirmed this.

Asrock has worked some of its magic and has enabled base clock overclocking on all non-K Skylake-S processors. That is, any Asrock Z170 motherboard will be able to overclock the Pentium G4400, G4500, G4520, Core i3-6100, i3-6300, i3-6320, Core i5-6400, i5-6500, i5-6600 and Core i7-6700 above their default operating frequency.

Asrock told TechSpot that this updated BIOS for their Z170 motherboards will be available to owners very soon. But for now, you can hit up the source link below to see how they got on with the Core i3-6100 fully unleashed.
