MSI H87 and even B85 can OC K cpus no problem

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Looking here it seems that overclocking K CPUs on the MSI H87 and B85 boards is not an issue.

As with non-K SKU Haswells, they can overclock the CPU to the maximum 1-core Turbo Boost frequency.

Ya, they may fix it with BIOS updates. Here is a post from a few weeks ago on the topic: http://www.overclock.net/t/1404482/toms-bug-in-intel-h87-chipset-allows-ratio-based-overclocking
