TechPowerUp picked up news that Intel is indeed bringing back memory overclocking support on mid-range chipsets. This was rumored a couple of weeks ago and now it's somewhat more official. For quite some time, the chip giant limited this feature to its more expensive Z-series chipsets, but now it's also enabled on motherboards with the H570 and B560 chipset. Unfortunately, CPU overclocking still requires a Z-series chipset.
The H570 and B560 chipsets now only lack the support for CPU overclocking, however, with Intel's history of limiting any overclocking exclusively to Z chipsets, this represents good progress nonetheless. However, for any frequencies above 2666 MHz, you need to use a Core i5 processor and above. The Core i3 and Celeron models are not going to support any higher speeds than 2666 MHz.
