ASUS Z170 non-k unlock

Recommended Posts

Some more info about the unlocking. What you need to know is that it's just a simple BIOS update and that it's experimental = not suited for 24/7 use. For example any power management will not work using this method. XTU is also screwed up when using this, with scores around 200 points.

 

BIOS for different boards will be released at a later stage when they are more fine-tuned.

This is not an official ASUS BIOS, only enables base clock overclocking on non-K CPUs.

Don’t use this for K-series CPUs.

It might damage your hardware, no guarantees provided.

Sounds like pretty cool oldschool overclocking out of the bios with no changes in windows - tweaking contests incoming...guarentee it!

Thanks man!!! :celebration::ws::ws:

Is it true when you OC blck your cpu will always run at maximum? Or when idle multiplier still drops to 8x? And how much more power does cpu draw compared to standard K OC?
