Intel warns against Alder Lake overclocking trick that could ‘damage’ your CPU

    Intel has cautioned Alder Lake CPU owners that those with non-K (locked) processors shouldn’t try to overclock them, even though this might be possible with certain motherboards, as it could result in damage to the chip.

    If you’ve been following this story over the course of this week, expert overclocker Der8auer has been experimenting with majorly ramping up the clocks on non-K models like the Core i5-12400 (we’ve also seen a Core i3 world record), which should not be open to overclocking officially – Intel’s ‘K’ CPUs are the products which are unlocked and meant for overclocking.
