The Edge Up website from ASUS is basically a resource where PC enthusiasts can learn more about ASUS products and how the technology actually works under the hood. The latest article comes from Tech veteran Raja Gill who has actually put together a comprehensive and detailed guide to overclocking the latest Kaby Lake procesors. It’s a must read for anyone who wants to get started in overclocking using the latest platform:
“Conroe, Sandy Bridge, Ivy Bridge, Haswell, Skylake, and anything in between, we’ve overclocked them all. Each had their pros and cons, but the standout architecture in that list is Sandy Bridge. Good samples were capable of achieving stable overclocks of 5GHz on air cooling. It’s a landmark that has proven elusive, until now. Finally, we have a worthy successor: Kaby Lake. Intel’s latest processors make 5GHz overclocks possible with air cooling, and you even can go beyond that. No need for lengthy intros when excitement levels are at fever pitch. Let’s get down to business!”
Raja continues to cover pretty much all aspects of Kaby Lake overclocking, putting together clear expectations on air. It’s also worth noting that he does so using data collected from hundreds of Core i7 7700K processors used in the ASUS labs. Topics include frequency expectations, advice about CPU cooling and power consumption, expectations about memory frequencies. He also covers topics like uncore frequencies and AVX offsetting. There’s also an overclocking workflow guide that tells you exactly how to approach overclocking with Kaby Lake. In short, it’s pretty much the ultimate guide when using an ASUS motherboard with an unlocked Kaby Lake chip.
