Overclock the i7-6820HK, simple guide?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I'm a novice when it comes to overclocking CPU's, I've never had an unlocked one before.


I've happily overclocked my old laptop's GTX 980M and gotten some great results.


I know have an AORUS X5v6 with a i7-6820HK, I want to push it to see what is capable of. Temps shouldn't be an issue as I can take it into a sub zero environment for testing (I have a large walk-in freezer).


AORUS's bios is heavily locked down so any CPU overclocking must be done with XTU or throttlestop or similar.


It has 4Ghz overclock via the app installed, but this only sets a single core to 4Ghz and the rest are stepped down.


A simple overclocking guide for this CPU would be helpful?


Any takers?
