Are you referring to ASUS or Intel?

Hi all and Hi, Raja@ASUS. This might be off-topic but can't find anything on the net about it and I don't think is a thread-worthy question.

I've been looking for a motherboard for my i7-6700K specifically for Underclocking , that's right underclocking. I know for a fact (source) that you guys enabled overclocking on your previous H97, H87, B85..etc chipsets, so Is this even possible on the newer H170 chipset for Skylake CPUs? I don't really care about the overclocking part, I just want to have access to the multiplier and voltage to underclock/undervolt my chip, is this feature available on the newer chipset?.

And please don't ask me why I want to underclock, thank you.

Asus removed the half baked 1003 bios, their forums were being lit up with instability, voltage issues...

this is why I never jump on release..

I know you said don't ask but I really have to ask.

Why do you want to underclock a 6700K?

Testing, mainly. How strong this CPU can be at low clocks and voltage, I'm pretty sure once I see what I want to see I'll leave it back at stock. Assuming the above is still true for H170 chipsets it can save me some bucks by not buying a feature I don't need.

Also the reason I tell people to don't ask, is because I already have asked something like this on other forums and coincidentally the threads turn into asking the same rather than giving me an answer to the question. I thought maybe Raja would know.

Why not save more and get the non K if there's no plans to OC (or change to the i5 and save even more).

This is exact prime example why I told people to not ask. But since we are starting to derail the point, why are you even suggesting? the question wasn't to you.
