awesome now make some server boards with this Hyper OC ability and watch intel crap a brick. give me those 8 core xeons that have low clocks but are under $450 with OC capability.

IAMACOW, JASONELMORE was talking about the socket 2011 Xeons, socket 1151 does not support more than 4 core CPUs ;)

As for socket 1151 Xeons, ASRock's Fatal1ty E3V5 Performance Gaming/OC works brilliantly. I managed to clock my 6600k (may as well be locked on a non Z board) to 4.5ghz without breaking a sweat using the BCLK OC.
 


Right, we seem to have a little confusion.

@Jasonelmore: There wouldn't be much point on the 8-core Xeon processors for socket 2011-3, as all of those motherboards use the X99 chipset and can OC already.

@iamcow: You are correct, you cannot use Xeon processors with any Z170, Q170, Q150, H170, H110 or B150 chipsets, which is rather limiting. But, as Xaitar pointed out, there is the iAsrock Fatal1ty E3V5 Performance Gaming/OC motherboard. It was technically part of the previous OC family mentioned in the article that was cancelled, but Asrock ended up shipping this one board anyway. It uses the C232 chipset, which is also sort of limiting, but it does let you BCLK OC the LGA1151 socket Xeon CPUs. I probably should have included a reference to it in this article, but here is a link to an older piece I wrote about that board.

@Xaitar: Awesome you got one of those boards. I'd honestly love to have one to play with, but I don't review motherboards and I don't have any need to build a new system right now, so I haven't got to yet. Although, I am somewhat surprised you didn't go for an LGA 1151 Xeon. Slightly higher cost, but you would end up with essentially a less expensive Core i7, and probably hit the same clock speeds. Still, glad you are keeping up. I think most people don't realize what that board can do.
 


There seems to be a little miss understanding here. E3V5 is part of the name of a motherboard. I do understand the confusion, as E3 V5 identifies the Skylake Xeon CPUs as well, but when it is for the processors there is a space between E3 and V5. When it is the motherboard, there is not. I know, really easy to get that mixed up. Please see this link:
http://www.tomshardware.com/news/asrock-non-z170-bclk-overclocking-motherboards,31362.html

Asrock's Fatal1ty E3V5 Performance Gaming/OC, and it uses the C232 chipset and can overclock LGA 1151 Xeon CPUs.

There is even more information on the LGA1151 platform in this article, which covers essentially every detail of these chispets from beginning to end.

You seem to be confused yourself, the Xeon E3 is a serie as is the E5 and E7
V1, V2, V3 is the Generation. They are now at Generation 5
I'm a system administrator and work mainly with HP Proliant DL380 and DL580 Gen 8 and Gen 9 using Xeons E5 and E7 with V2, V3 and V4 CPUs.
What you are talking about is a bunch of cheap asrock motherboard, taking the name E3V5 from Intel and that before today I've never heard off and will never again...

Take a look on the intel website for yourself, so you can be less misinformed and enter the business world of intel...

And for your information you cannot use an Intel Xeon E3 12XX-V5 (I make it easier for IINUYASHA74 to understand) on any other chipset beside an Intel C232 or C236, since the V5 generation of the Intel E3 Xeons Intel blocked them to work only on the server / workstation C232 and C236 chipsets. Take a look if you don't believe me, none of the Z170, H170, B150 or other chipsets have any E3 12XX-V5 Xeon in their CPU support lists

IINUYASHA74 never said one could use E3 12XX-V5 series of Xeons on consumer class mobos, the Asrock board does feature a C232 chipset and can OC via BCLk. Shouldn't be hard to understand. But my query here about the Hyper series is - can these boards bypass the shortcomings of non-K OC like disabled igp and power-management?

Splendid
So people trying to clear things up ended up excessively condescending, huh?

I just want to see Bramahon's quesiton answered--whether BCLK overclocks have had their shortcomings fixed. Personally, I still run a Sandy Bridge i7-2600K so there's no actually prospect of a BCLK OC for me. But it might be a great option for my next upgrade...although I hope that to be to an AMD Zen processor.

I wish they called "Zen" the K13 architecture. I loved the K10.
