These exist? And they're OC'able?

 

WHAT

 

HIT ME UP

With an easy BIOS update on ASRock board (ASRock so far right now, other brands will most likely soon release BIOS updates), you can OC these bad boys.

YEAH MAN BUT YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TO PRODUCE AN ARM AND A FUCKING LEG TO GET DDR4 AND A MOTHERBOARD. 

 

But for real though, this is probably for only if you want a computer really desperately and you don't get paid till next month or something ya know.

How much do those cost?

Seems prices have deflated, I want to see a sick build with this and how it performs compared to the AMD offerings. *though some games simply won't run on a dual core these days*

All* Non-K CPUs are OC'able with a BIOS update on ASRock boards (ASRock is the only brand I know of right now, others will probably soon follow)

*I may be mistaken

What about these mobos, not really a fan of the colors on that AsRock...

I knew the BIOS update was coming but i didn't know it was already here.

 

I thought Intel had made another Pentium K for a second.

Either way it should perform well when OCd for single-threaded tasks.

The neat thing is that you could overclock something like an i5-6500, which is a Quad-Core.

 

 

I have no information on wether those will be receiving BIOS updates to allow for this OC. So IDK.

You need a BIOS update to overclock, are the Pentiums not unlocked?

While it's a decent price for a CPU - DDR4 is not some magical land with any major benefits to "get into" and I refuse to ever go back to dual core. Not worth it.

Technically, no they're not unlocked per-se by Intel, but it's easily possible to overclock them with a BIOS update.

Why do ASRock boards "suck major ass"? Is that just a statement you pulled out of your ass to conform to the others opinion or do you have actually experiences or reviews to back you up?

Of course this isn't for you, you already have a functioning computer. People who don't have any computer could very well be content with a dual core until their next birthday. DDR4 and LGA 1151 motherboards seem to be getting cheaper.

I hear terrible things about their customer service but that they've gotten better in the past few years from the horrible quality boards they had before then.

But that 6600k and 6700k sure haven't, Ayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

 

No but on the real if BCLK OCing is going to be a thing again with locked CPUs then a 6400 or 6500 would be a great budget option.

Fair enough, I've also heard that they had some dodgy quality in the past.

I'd like to say i'd go with an Asrock board myself, but for the same reason i'll never go ASUS, i will never buy an Asrock board no matter how good the quality of the board.
