    On Intel, does anyone overclock the FSB anymore or only the Multiplier :confused:

    i think you'll find the FSB died out around 10 years ago and so no overclocking takes place on it.

    set the multiplier and enjoy the extra megahertz and heat that comes along with it.

    BCLK overclocks were last possible on Z170 boards with old BIOS.

    My current board gets upto 129Mhz

    ok so I'm showing my age there. Is there any benefit to overclocking the BCLK :confused:

    It's cheaper because you don't need a k CPU.

    I think you'll find the non k cpu's only allow 5Mhz overclock :(

    People overclock i7-6700 non-k to 4.5-4.7Ghz. It's doable but given the current price difference between the k and non-k it's probably not worth the effort.

    FSB overclocking stopped when socket 775 went EOL. Then the first gen 1156 and 1366 socket brought in BCLK overclocking which fundamentally functioned almost the same as traditional FSB overclocks. Intel killed this when they brought out K variant cpu's to do exactly that; overclocking at a premium with socket 1155 Sandy-Bridge to current architectures. Some non unlocked cpu's can run at max turbo clock multiplier which gave it a nice boost, across the board BCLK overclocks sucked for non K cpu's because it is tied with the memory controller and PCI-E lanes.
