    Default Intel Blocks Skylake 'Non-K' Overclocking With New Chip Update

    Intel will shut the door on a trick used to make the company's processors run faster than intended. Until now, speed fanatics could squeeze out better performance from cheap chips using a technique known in tech circles as "overclocking."

    They want their money for your overclocking. I knew that this was gonna happen.

    it's a good thing you all,,and everyone you know knows to NEVER allow an update or ANY communication over your network that you SPECIFICALLY decidedly and calculatedly PERMIT
    of COURSE you would NEVER permit an update if you have not reviewed it THOROUGHLY.....right?
    i mean you would NEVER allow the big companies ruin your life, or be used by uncle sam to do so
    i mean, you are all that ........ *aware*..... of the seriousness of these situations.....right?
    learning is good .....understanding is better .....pleas teach with wisdom............................................ ..............calemus

    Just buy the "K" chip to begin with and fogetaboutit!

    It's worth not having the hassle in the future.
    Yeah, you're getting away with faster performance that Intel never intended you to have with these locked chips, but I don't think that they're wrong to put an end to it.
    If you jumped on this bandwagon, just keep the BIOS that you already have, and keep a few backups of that bios too.
