Why can't you overclock non k edition 1155? - Page 2

There are internal circuits and fuses that set a CPUID. Some Core2's could have their CPUID changed by bridging pads on the chip, but as far as I know there are no work arounds for the i-series. The mobo reads the circuit and recognizes the hardware ID.

this, its even being done on SB-E. those chips have 8 cores, but only 6 are stable for overclocking, the 8 core skus will become Xeons.
