On the testbed side of things there's nothing out of the ordinary, so we won't really get into that. Instead, you can see all the main information above. We'll now just get into the overclocking side of things to see how we went with the board.
The first thing we want to cover is the little OC button at the back of the I/O panel. On our 2600k, when we were in Windows that instantly pushed our CPU from a default clock of 3.4GHz to 4.2GHz. It's a really easy process and an 800MHz boost with a bush of a button is always appreciated.
There doesn't seem to be anything scientific to the whole method with it just instantly happening via a change to the multiplier, but again it's not something we're going to complain about and if you're a gamer, it's nice to know that at a push of a button you can get a bit more breathing room on your whole rig.
As for getting into the BIOS and getting a bit down and dirty, after a bit of mucking around and playing with voltages we finally ended up with our 2600k running at a 51x multiplier.
As you can see from the above image, that resulted in a final clock speed of 5114MHz or 5.11GHz as represented in our graphs.
