    Is there a way to adjust your CPU's clock speed even if it has a locked multiplier - other than manually tweaking the base clock?

It must also be noted too that Base Frequency Boost and APE don't benefit Gaming workloads as much as they will for Workstation tasks: While you will see improved 0I% and 00.I0% (One Tenth of One Percent) Lows in a good amount of titles both old and new alike with the feature, BFB and APE truly show their muscle when you are producing Art, Video, and Model Renders, which is really what this feature is optimized for; those who are using their system for this type of scenario will get the most out of it and this is why I have been all for this concept on B and H Series Intel boards that run Coffee Lake, Comet Lake, Rocket Lake, and even the currently rumoured Alder Lake (Generation XI; not to be confused with the Generation XII Alder Lake on LGA 1700), it will allow for users to get the most out of their system when it's seven to ten years in and still has a lot of life in it and because it scales as you go up every tier (the Locked/No Suffix variant 8700, 9900, and 10900 all see noticeable performance gains for their generation on APE/BFB when compared to their lower tier siblings, which is also due to Hyperthreading), this gives you more of a reason to do an In Socket Upgrade, so that you don't have to jump to a new motherboard and platform outright, thus it must be expected that the Locked variants of the Coffee Lake and LGA 1200 Flagships will be sought after a lot in the Second Hand market, they could potentially make for decent Budget Workstation CPUs if Ryzen ever has an availability or pricing issue in the Used market and I will keep a firm eye to see what comes of these chips going forward.

Regarding CPU clock speed: it not like we getting base clock at very high speed as default and its decreased by omitting cycles, for example base 16Ghz and skip every 4 cycles which get us 4 Ghz speed. That would explain why we can icrease it later. In those "locked" models we just get base clock without any dividing and that's why its locked? I Bought CPU like 10 years ago and I didn't even know that we have something like locked or unlocked cpu for PC so i know sh*t, but correct me if im wrong :)

I nearly bricked BIOS by overclocking by about 5mhz through microcode. My suggestion: Don't mess around with microcode. Because if you brick BIOS, you most likely void warranty, and will have paperweight motherboard. Buy another CPU, or upgrade motherboard to new gen.

Wait. Unlocked chips are more powerful than locked cpus because the standard cpu tdp is 65W. Unlocked cpus (Intel) have 95W or more Tdp. Say the i5 9600 vs 9600k, you can see that the k variant has more clock speeds than non k variants. Please do note this.

Im curious about if you can get a bit more overall speed when you increase the bus speed even on unlocked cpus (aside from the normal oc with multiplier) cuz you get a bit faster ram pciE bus speed (like for m2 ssds and maybe faster gpu access) or doesnt make that sense?

You woot mate? Not able to overclock non-K scews? or did i misinterpreted the last 60% of the video or is it only on recent CPU's this apply? Meanwhile.... Me running my i3770 (NON-K) @ 4.3 GHz all core overclock on intel stock cooler for 2 years might not be the best idea, Baseclock of 102-103 MHz and 42 multiplier... turned down to 4.1 GHz all core with 100 MHz base clock with a decent aircooler the past 6 years xD

The reason Intel still sell locked 🔐 CPUs is because it's not so much for people that build their own PC's it's more for company contracts like HP, Dell, etc.. They will buy locked CPUs for their systems so then people can't overclock them too much and then eventually damage the PC and then try and get a warrently claim out of them.

i guess you can. I've been using the same laptop for years now,it wasn't originally meant for gaming,but i kind of got into it. My cpu has a max clock of 1.8Ghz but i can use it to play games like arkham origins or just cause 2 that have minimum requirements of 2.4GHz. I'm really not sure whats going on in there,but I'd like to think its overclocking

You could overclock sandy/ivybridge cpus by upping their Turbo Speed multiplier. Z77 chipsets could do this. So the base speed multiplier would be locked, but when needed, the turbo boost would kick in. I have an i5 3550 @ 3.3Ghz that will Turbo to 4.1Ghz; well over it's rated speed.

Well, I did that with an old i5 6500 (non-k) by simply putting it's turbo boost ridiculously high, and then set it's limits to how long it would boost really high. This worked fine, and I actually doubled my benchmark score on cinebench. Unfortunately, one day I installed 'intel exteme tuning utility' and it suddenly got unstable.

The clock governor is literally an ARM SoC embedded on the dye, the restriction is 100% software (it's literally how turboboost works). The problem is the same as with the ME, it's very difficult to get external access to those embedded components. Give it time and someone will find a way to overflow into the pingpong buffer registers the clock governor shares with the rest of the CPU, which is basically how the ME was defeated.
