Intel: Overclocking of 12th Gen non-K CPU at your own risk
Intel: Overclocking of 12th Gen non-K CPU may cause damage at your own risk.
To say that the most popular processor in the near future is Intel’s 12th-generation Core.
Since on the 12th-generation CPU, the FSB is no longer locked with the PCIe frequency, that is, it will not be overclocked synchronously, which reduces the trouble and difficulty.
At present, it has been confirmed that models such as Celeron G6900, Core i3-12100 and Core i3-12400 all support overclocking, and some overclockers have successfully overclocked the Core i3-12300 to 5.4GHz and the i5-12400 to 5.2GHz, and the performance has been improved by at least 30%.
Apparently, Intel also took note of these reports and responded: “Intel’s 12th Gen Core non-K processors are not designed for overclocking, and there is no guarantee that the processors it sells will function well beyond their standard frequencies. operation.
Artificially changing clock frequencies or voltages may damage or shorten the life of the processor and other system components, and may reduce system stability and performance.”
Intel also emphasizes that if a user overclocks the Intel 12th-generation Core non-K version processor, resulting in various problems or damage, no warranty service will be provided.
