I5 6500 with official BIOS


Recommended Posts

Hey guys.

I'm a newbie in OC and I currently build up my first pc.

Shame on me, but I wonder if you could tell me what settings I have to choose for my non-k i5 6500 to optimize it's performance. I don't want to use the custom BIOS for overclocking. At least for now. First I rather go step by step as I learn how my components work together.

It would be great if you oc-gods could come down from your thrones to help me with your guidance.

I have a ASUS Z170 Pro Gaming, a Thermaltake Water 3.0 Performer Cooler (should be enough), 4x4Gb Corsair Vengeance LPX 2800MHz and, of course, my Tray i5 6500.

You will need a BIOS with the non-K OC support in order to push it. They aren't risky and ASUS have a flashback feature which has saved me once (only ever needed it once) if things go pear shaped. :)


There's a website that Roman (der8auer) has uploaded a lot of the non-K BIOS files to. Check it out here: Socket 1151 Skylake Non-K OC Archives - Overclocking.Guide
