ASUS Enables Overclocking on H97, H87, B85 and H81 Series Motherboards

ASUS today announced that its H97, H87, B85 and H81 Series motherboards are able to overclock the latest Intel Pentium Anniversary Edition processor (G3258), 4th-generation Intel Core K Series (‘Haswell’) and new 4th-generation Intel Core K Series (‘Haswell Refresh’) processors. The combination of the Pentium Anniversary Edition processor and non-Z chipsets represents the best choice for mainstream overclocking, delving both great value and superb performance.

The overclocking features of the Intel Pentium Anniversary Edition processor, 4th-generation and new 4th-generation Intel Core K Series processors have traditionally been limited to Intel Z chipsets. With ASUS H97, H87, B85 and H81 Series motherboards, performance enthusiasts are now able to exploit the overclocking power of those processors via the award-winning ASUS UEFI BIOS.

When a compatible Pentium Anniversary Edition processor, 4th-generation or new 4th-generation Intel Core K Series processor is inserted into an ASUS H97, H87, B85 or H81 Series motherboard, the CPU’s overclocking potential will be detected automatically and the related tuning items to adjust the CPU ratio will appear in the UEFI BIOS.

Notes:
– Users should refer to the relevant ASUS motherboard support page for correct BIOS version.
– The 4th-generation Intel Core K Series (‘Haswell’ and ‘Haswell Refresh’) processors include Core i7 4770K, Core i5 4670K, Core i7-4790K and i5-4690K. ASUS does not guarantee that later-announced Intel CPUs with overclocking features (‘Haswell Refresh K’ Series) will be overclockable on ASUS H97, H87, B85 and H81 Series motherboards.
– ASUS H97 Series motherboards are able to overclock only the ‘CPU ratio’ of the new Pentium processor, 4th-generation and new 4th-generation Intel Core K Series (‘Haswell and Haswell Refresh’) processors.
– ASUS does not guarantee that Intel new Pentium processor and Core K Series (‘Haswell’ and ‘Haswell Refresh’) processors will be overclockable on – – ASUS H97, H87, B85 and H81 Series motherboards in the event that Intel issues software and firmware updates that result in function changes
