Intel Core i7-6700K Skylake Processor Review

Overclocking on Skylake can be easily achieved much like how it was done on Haswell. Just disable Intel SpeedStep and up your multiplier and CPU Core voltage accordingly. After about an hour of testing we settled on an overclock of 4.7 GHz with the CPU vCore at 1.4V.


Because of the deadline to complete this review and subsequent Z170 motherboard reviews we did not get a chance to really dive into Skylake overclocking. Expect a Skylake overclocking guide in the coming weeks!

Here are some benchmarks showing the performance difference if you plan to overclock your system.
