i5 6500 overcocking

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Seems like my i5 6500 is not up to the task anymore and I'd like to overclock it! I know its a non-k version but I do recall overclocking it with my old MSI z170 pro motherboard with a bios update, wasn't a good overclock but it was overclocked nevertheless. My current mobo is an Asus z-170p, however, for some reason, it has a line of LEDs on the PCB I don't see on other versions. I am not sure if this changes anything. Does anyone know where to find the bios update or how to do it?

 

Thanks.

u can't, wat u can do is just cranck it up to the max speed which is its turbo speed, like my 6400, running 3.1ghz

Is it specific to my motherboard? I overclocked it with the msi board so I don't see why I couldn't with this Asus board. How can I do the turbo speed?

Search in whatever search engine for 'non-K Sky OC Z170-P' for an old BIOS (that might not exist) that supports this. New BIOSes removes this function in request by Intel.

Non-K OC lowers the cache speed and screws up the temperature sensors' readings, so dont get worried when these look weird..

U cant overclock it .. no idea why ure trying. I got the same processor and its also not good enough for me. Instead im upgrading to ryzen when the b450 mobos get released.

For all the guys saying “yOu cAnT oC” there is such a thing as bclk ocing. I think that intel limits this after some mhz. Also, it would be better to keep it at stock for lonvegity sake and try to make it turbo most of the time.

It's not limited by Intel. It's limited by the architecture. It can't handle more than usually 1 or 2 MHz on the baseclock.

BIOS corrupted. Does your board have dual BIOS? If not, try to contact Asus to see if there is a way to force reflash via a USB stick.

Well I got it overclocked quite a bit with a bclk of 120

 

I will contact asus but so far no video signal on anything.... I guess for now i'll just buy a 50€ h110 board for now until I can get this sorted out. should I get b250?
