As we mentioned a couple of days ago, several motherboard makers are working on a BIOS update to enable baseclock overclocking of non-K series Intel Skylake processors. The latest motherboard maker to launch this feature is Biostar, users of the BIOSTAR GAMING Z170X, GAMING Z170T, GAMING Z170W and HI-FI Z170Z5 can download the update from the company's website.
Overclocking has been reserved mostly for high-end unlocked CPUs including the latest Skylake K series processors and many overclockers and high-performance gamers want this processors because of their easy overclocking capabilities via their unlocked multiplier.

With BIOSTAR HyperOC, you can take entry-level processors like the 3.3GHz Pentium G4400 and increase its clock speed up to 36%*, bringing it to a lofty 4.48Ghz clock speed. The same can be done with a Core i3-6100T from a 3.2GHz frequency, via HyperOC, you can now enjoy up to 4.32Ghz. That’s a 35%* overclock.
