Well-known overclocker shows how to overclock non-K Intel Alder Lake CPUs

Overclocking expert and YouTuber der8auer posted an interesting video last weekend showing how to overclock the BCLK on some of the latest non-K Intel Alder Lake processors, which can lead to performance boosts by up to 33. % after only five minutes of tweaking the BIOS. Recall that Intel 'K' series processors are usually the only products that allow adjustments to the base clock (BCLK) and, in recent generations, non-K chips have been limited to memory overclocking only. However, this is not the case with these CPUs / motherboards tested in the video.

For example, options are offered to overclock the E and P cores separately, with adjustable parameters covering various voltages, cache frequency, graphics, memory, and BCLK overclocking. In addition, a new 'Synthetic BCLK' facilitates adjustments on motherboards that do not have an external clock generator. Just as these features are present in the new motherboard BIOS user interfaces, you should be able to access them in the updated Intel XTU v7.5 software or higher.

Back to the video, der8auer talks to viewers about the adjustments needed to overclock processors like the Intel Core i5-12400 / F and i5-12600 on the ASUS ROG Maximus Z690 Apex motherboard. Adjustments through several entries on the Extreme Tweaker pages of the BIOS were necessary to ensure that the system boots and is stable. Der8auer also did know what parameters to adjust to test the clock and voltage limits of the processor you have purchased. Of course, the most important thing is that a setting in the Extreme Tweaker> Tweaker's Paradise options allows you to select a drop-down menu to switch Unlock BCLK OC to 'Enabled'.

In early tests of various non-K processors, it appears that lower-mid-range components like the Core i5-12400 / F will have the best OC potential. Therefore, der8auer has decided to run several synthetic productivity tests and gaming benchmarks with this processor. He apologized for the more significant variations of the test platforms than usual. However, these findings are quite worthy of attention, with increases observed in standard systems over OC systems quite noticeable. Also, in some popular games, the relatively humble Core i5-12400 could beat processors of the caliber of the stock clocked Core i7-12700K or the Core i9-12900K.

With the extra voltage required and the resulting clocks at over five GHz, heat wasn't even an issue in general, but that will depend on your cooling solution. However, these were outstanding results for "five minutes of work" of tweaking the processors.

To wrap up his video, dr8auer talked about the possibility of enabling 'Unlock BCLK OC' on other ASUS motherboards, as well as from various manufacturers. He has only had two hits, with the aforementioned ASUS ROG Maximus Z690 Apex and the ASUS ROG Maximus Z690 Hero. However, he was unable to do the same with the ASUS ROG Strix Z690-I Gaming Wi-Fi and the ASUS TUF Gaming B660M-Plus D4. De8auer wondered if an external clock generator on the motherboard might be a particular requirement that separates the availability of the Asus Unlock BCLK OC function.
