    plz help to find GIGABYTE Z170-Gaming K3 firmware for non-K OC

    der8auer's bios F2c didn't work with different multiplier


    Unlike K-CPUs which can be overclocked using the multiplier, non-K CPUs have to be overclocked using the BCLK. Pre-Skylake CPUs such as Haswell or Devils Canyon could only be overclocked by about 3-5% using the BCLK because the BCLK was still tied to the DMI and the PCIe.



  2. Hey gurus


    I am really tired of trying every non k bios out there. I have Z170x Gaming 3 motherboard which apparently came with f6 bios. I am trying to overclock i7 6400t ES processor however the bclk oc options are locked. I have tried f5g f5j & f5m bios versions and none of these have been able to unlock the bclk features for the board. Please guide me what should i do?


    F5g (or any earlier) should work for retail CPU version......not sure about your 6400t ES CPU....

    Just checked ...even F5m should work.


    Can you check CPU ID for your processor.This BIOS's is for 06E3 CPU ID.
