Overclock Intel Haswell with ASUS H87 and B85 Motherboards

Overclocking Intel Haswell with ASUS H87 and B85 Motherboards Now Available

With Intel Haswell being released with the flagship i7-4770k CPU and the Z87 chipset being the only chipset that has been available to actually overclock with is no more. ASUS is now releasing BIOS updates to overclock the ASUS H87 and B85 chipset motherboards. The update will be a free one that you can download on the ASUS website, all you need to do is go to your specific motherboard’s webpage.

Currently to start will be ten ASUS H87 and B85 motherboards. These motherboard will be the H87-Pro, H87-PLUS, H87M-Pro, H87M-PLUS, H87M-E, H87I-PLUS, B86-Pro, B85-PLUS, B85M-E, and the B86M-G. If more ASUS H87 and B85 motherboards are released I would think it would be safe to assume that they will have this update from the factory or an easy BIOS update.

Once you install the new UEFI BIOS for the ASUS H87 and B85 motherboards then you will gain access to enable the ability to change the multiplier for overclocking easily for Intel Haswell “K” processors such as the i7-4770k and i5-4670k. While this is the biggest update to the UEFI BIOS, you will also have a couple more features that will be enabled such as “Favorites” for changing setting quickly and “Last Modified” to make it easier to track what you were last changing so to help with setting or overclocking.
