Overclocking Intel Kaby Lake Core i3-7350K

How far can you push the Intel Kaby Lake Core i3-7350K? Can it hit the magic 5GHz mark? How does it overclock on air? On water? All these questions and more are answered in HotHardware's latest review.

Intel did something interesting when it launched its Kaby Lake-based series of 7th generation Core i processors recently. Tucked away in the product line-up, alongside quad-core speedsters like the Core i7-7700K, was a new, relatively low-priced Core i3 processor, which also happened to be unlocked for more flexible overclocking. Most previous-gen Core i3 processors were multiplier locked, which limited overclocking to only BCLK adjustments.
