i5-6400 help

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Having 3.2GHz as the stock speed for the i5-6400, would I be able to hit 3.5GHz with safe temps with the stock cooler?

BLCK? be careful.

what temps?


Ryzen 5 3600 stock | 2x16GB C13 3200MHz (AFR) | GTX 760 (Sold the VII)| ASUS Prime X570-P | 6TB WD Gold (128MB Cache, 2017)

Samsung 850 EVO 240 GB 

138 is a good number.

The 6400 is a locked CPU, meaning no OCs.

 

AFAIK locked Skylake chips can't be OCd anymore.

I heard I could. Weird, I'll just go with another CPU then.

Assuming you're capable of overclocking locked chip, that's silicon lottery, but most likely the answer's yes. Don't quote me on this though.

Guide for overclocking locked Skylake SKUs. I guess if it works with mine up to 4.5 Ghz you can get the 6400 to your desired 3.5.

 

Edit: Posting the link to the guide would be an idea eh. http://www.tweaktown.com/guides/7481/tweaktowns-ultimate-intel-skylake-overclocking-guide/index3.html

What about the i5-6500, would I be able to hit 4GHz with the stock cooler? (If I can even overclock It)

Yep

 

BCLK overclocking is... interesting, but certainly possible

To be precise, this is the speed the 6400 runs at: http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/processors/000005647.html

Let's put things straight: Can you overclock a Locked Skylake CPU?

 

Yes.

 

Plain and simple, you CAN do it via BCLK tweaking on most Z170 motherboards. This is still a thing, it didn't go away.

 

 

HOWEVER, just because you can, doesn't mean you should. There are a lot of downsides to doing so, to the point of almost not being worth the effort. Just pay a bit more for a 6600k or get a 6700 + non H110 mobo for around the same price.
