In the Skylake (Z170) OC subforum you can find thread related to Skylake overclocking, varying from thermal paste tests to the ROG Maximus VIII OC guide. In one of the threads you can find Z170 BIOS, tools, facts, stats and list of mainboards. Today we updated the thread with the latest statistics and uploaded 47 new BIOSes!
The new BIOSes coming from a variety of mainboard manufacturers. We have uploaded quite a lot of new BIOSes: 10x ASRock, 16x ASUS, 1x Biostar, 3x EVGA, 14x GIGABYTE, and 3x MSI. It's good to see mainboard vendors continuously update the firmware of their products as more bugs get ironed out and more overclocking headroom is made available to the overclockers.
In terms of statistics, we now have 1300 Skylake overclocking submissions in the database originating from about 150 overclockers worldwide. In total 32 mainboards have been used, which is less than half of the 82 mainboards we have in our database. The most popular brand currently is ASUS, with the Maximus VIII Gene as most used product. 34% of the overclockers are done with all-in-one water cooling. Digg_de from Germany is the most active overclocker with 201 submissions.
We look forward to seeing the Skylake overclocking activity pick up over the course of the next couple of weeks. Let us know if you have any guides or BIOSes to share so we can add it to the thread!
