Break Through Previously Locked Performance Limits

The new Intel Core Processor has an unlocked multiplier, which allows you to easily increase the core and memory frequencies beyond the original specifications. If you hit a power wall, you also have the ability to increase the current and wattage limits of the processor to have access to more power. When combined with a robust motherboard, good cooling, and high-performance DDR3 memory based on Intel Extreme Memory Profiles (Intel XMP), you have the most flexibility for overclocking available.

Unlocked Processor Warning:  Altering frequency or voltage may cause damage and is not warranted by Intel.  See enclosed booklet.

Compatibility Warning:

This processor requires a motherboard that utilizes the LGA1156 socket and has specific requirements that must be supported by your motherboard.  Failure to use an appropriate motherboard may result in running your processor out of specification, which will void your processor warranty.  Consult your motherboard manufacturer for compatibility.
