You may need to enable it, I am not sure with that board (or any GIGA for that matter).


Your CPU holds no microcode, it's in the BIOS only as far as I know.


I'm sure someone else with a little more input will be of more use. :)

the microcode being in the BIOS only does match up with that iv seen in the CPU info screen of the BIOS, but how the heck do i enable the non K OCing? flip a dust mote sized switch on the mobo? change settings in some weird and crazy way like im putting in a cheat code for some games? (where you type the code in game, not in a box or field) il dig around in the BIOS setup and see if i can find the magical setting "skylake non K BCLK overclocking"



eidt: if at first it doesen't boot past the BIOS, try again, OCed by 25% so far and no problems, going to push it a bit more and see where it throws in the towel with 1.36v VCORE


edit 2: oddly enough gibagyte's SIV app seems to be able to read the temp correctly, albeit with a little more fluctuating then it does when not OCed

and it fails to boot past the BIOS as soon as i go over about 102.73Mhz on the base clock..

now i need to figure out how to find out if i have non "non K OCing" microcode on my CPU


There's basically a BCLK hole between 102.74 and 103.00. Skip to 105 or so and move up from there. If you have a Non-K OC BIOS, it should be happy to do so.
