Default ASUS Z170 non-k unlock

Some more info about the unlocking. What you need to know is that it's just a simple BIOS update and that it's experimental = not suited for 24/7 use. For example any power management will not work using this method. XTU is also screwed up when using this, with scores around 200 points.

BIOS for different boards will be released at a later stage when they are more fine-tuned.

Air cooled 4.7GHz Core i3 6300 on Maximus VIII Gene http://valid.x86.fr/t2lui6



Air cooled 4.8GHz Core i5 6400 on Z170-A http://valid.x86.fr/4n5wnj



LN2 6GHz Core i3 6300 on Maximus VIII Gene http://valid.x86.fr/hv4uf1



edit:

Air cooled straight boot 400MHz base clock on Maximus VIII Extreme http://valid.x86.fr/wsjpwm




BIOS

* Maximus VIII Ranger 0002
* Maximus VIII Hero 0002
* Maximus VIII Hero Alpha 0002
* Maximus VIII Gene 0002
* Maximus VIII Formula 0002
* Maximus VIII Extreme 0002
* Maximus VIII Impact 0002

* Z170 Pro Gaming 1301
* Z170I Pro Gaming 9006
* Z170-DELUXE 0050

* Z170-A 0050
* Z170-E 0050
* Z170-K 0602
* Z170-P 8001
* Z170-P D3 8002

* Z170M-Plus 8001
* Z170M-E D3 8003

This is not an official ASUS BIOS, only enables base clock overclocking on non-K CPUs.
Don’t use this for K-series CPUs.
It might damage your hardware, no guarantees provided.


Issues found so far

* No IGPU
* No dynamic change of CPU frequency
* No C-states
* No Turbo Mode
* CPU temperature reading is incorrect
* AVX instructions have very low performance

After flashing set the following settings to make it boot into OS with correct CPU speed

Advanced\CPU Configuration
- Boot Performance Mode -> Turbo Performance

Advanced\CPU Configuration\CPU Power Management Configuration
- Intel(R) SpeedStep(tm) -> Disabled
- CPU C states -> Disabled

edit: Added BIOSes

edit2: Added Ranger & Pro Gaming

edit3: Added Hero Alpha & Formula. 0002 bioses support Windows XP.

edit4: Moar boards

edit4: Added D3 and Z170I Pro Gaming
