The Kaby Lake Overclocking Guide

Need some help getting the most out of your new CPU? Head on over to the Kaby Lake overclocking guide and see what it took to hit a stable 5GHz overclock.

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 was 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.
