ASUS and ASRock will release new Bios that will enable overclocking the base clock frequency of non-K Skylake processors. Would be greate if EVGA would also add this possibility in a new bios release.

    I'm sure it will be on the EVGA 'to do' list but maybe not a high priority item.

    Overclocking the base clock frequency on the non K CPU's isn't currently available with any vendor? I guess I thought it was. I was hoping to see EVGA put USB-c and/or other perks on their Stinger motherboards, which I'm hoping they will sooner than later in a version 2. I's still rocking an X58 SLI 3 motherboard with a backup (my original non USB 3.0) X58 SLI motherboard collecting moth balls lol.

    For the ASRock Z170 OC Formula is a new BIOS version already available (1.92 BIOS) which supports BCLK overclocking for non-K processors

    Someone did it by modding an ASRock BIOS which got ASRock's attention. ASRock promptly announced an upcoming BIOS update to allow users to OC using the BCLK on their motherboards. More here: http://www.anandtech.com/show/9848/bclk-overclocking-intels-non-k-skylake-processors-coming-soon

    Some people have expressed concerns that Intel might lock this feature down with an update to their chipset drivers but nothing from Intel yet. I think Intel is afraid of alienating too many of their customers to try and lock this BCLK OC out of a BIOS.

    why else would they have decoupled the internal components minus the gpu from bclk if not for this reason? They can still sell K series as higher binned chips.

    IDK, it's just because Intel originally announced that if you wanted to OC a Skylake CPU you needed to buy a 'k' series chip this time around. I won't upgrade until the next chipset is released anyway. Some people just like to worry about things is all I can think of right now.

    I don't get what all the fuss is about overclocking an i3 processor

    I was never any good at overclocking with the BCLK anyway so I don't care. I couldn't do anything with my Q6600 despite everyone claiming they would OC like a champ. That's why I broke into a happy dance when the i7-2600k was released. Overclocking so easy your grandma can do it!

    If this feature is retained I might have to scale my desktop down to mITX.

    but q6600 was super easy, set to 400mhz bus, voltage to 1.45 and go lol
