ASRock BIOS update disables overclocking on non-K series Skylake CPUs

A couple of days ago there was a report about Intel working on a BIOS update to prevent baseclock overclocking of non-K series Skylake processors.

It didn't take long for this to materialize as ASRock rolled out a series of BIOS updates for its Z170 series motherboards that remove the recently introduced SKY OC overclocking functionality. Besides removing Sky OC support, these updates also feature a CPU microcode (0x76) update but it's not known what this microcode update fixes.

Presumably, other motherboard makers will follow soon.
