[WCCF]Intel Might be Forcing Ban on Non-K OC Feature on Skylake Motherboards – Updated BIOS Rolling Out Soon

ASRock has released the latest BIOS for their Skylake motherboards which removes the SkyOC feature. This confirms that Intel has asked vendors to disable overclocking support on their motherboards. Do note that removal of SkyOC feature not only limits users from overclocking their non-K chips, but also disables from non-Z series motherboards.



Will there be a backlash for this decision?

That's bad, why are they doing this? They should leave it on Z series motherboards, so one can buy and i3 and Z series motherboards and oc.

I understand the disappointment, but to ask why? Non K CPU were bought locked and really one should expect that it stay that way. They never supported this feature officially.

I thought this was just a rumour... they are really doing it, wow.

As of late a lot of well known companies seem to be doing their best to upset customers and going against common sense.

This is the kind of super bad PR no company wants and one of the biggest mistakes they could have made. You don't let the cat out of the bag initially if you plan to try to put it back in again, it doesn't work like that.

If they didn't intend for this to be a possibility they should have just kept the platform specs as in previous CPU generations that prevented it.

Screw intel and their damn monopoly. They don't even let you change RAM frequency unless you buy their super dooper cool K CPU's with a Z-motherboard. rolleyes.gif

Am I the only one who doesn't see an issue here? You have bought a CPU that is not advertised as overclockable, how exactly do you get upset when you can't overclock it?

Do you know how this site started? How people got enthusiastic about getting more for their purchase? Back in the Athlon and Pentium 4 days in 2004. And then with the Core 2 architecture. None of them were advertised as overclockable, except for the top end models.

This isn't about rights, it's about expectations. It's bad PR.

As I said in the previous post, if they didn't want people to overclock them they should have kept the platform specs that prevented it from happening like in previous generations. This trying to put the cat back in the bag just makes them look bad.
