Intel Shutting Down Skylake Overclocking Loophole

According to this article, Intel will be shipping a new microcode update for Skylake processors that will put an end to overclocking non-K CPUs.

"Intel regularly issues updates for our processors which our partners voluntarily incorporate into their BIOS," an Intel spokesman said. "The latest update provided to partners includes, among other things, code that aligns with the position that we do not recommend overclocking processors that have not been designed to do so. Additionally, Intel does not warranty the operation of the processor beyond its specifications."
