    Any Skylake CPU can be overclocked, not just "K" models


    From Tom's Hardware

    "...It was recently discovered that, with the right motherboard, any Skylake CPU could be overclocked by increasing the systemís base clock. At the time, it wasnít clear which motherboards would be capable of overclocking these CPUs, but board manufacturers have been working to add overclocking support for non-K processors on their products..."

    That is the old school way of overclocking. It does require one to be more careful, however. As it affects more than just the CPU.

    Not on Skylake. The CPU's BCLK isn't tied to other components.

    Yes it is. As I go up in Bclk ram speed increases as well, just like on older generations. You have to compensate for this.
