Locked Skylake can be overclocked soon
Looks like you might be able to overclock your locked Intel Skylake CPUs soon:
Laptop: MSI GS30 Shadow-045 Dimensions: 12.6" x 8.9" x 0.8" 2.65lbs CPU: Intel Core i7-4870HQ Quad-Core + Hyper-Threading OC 2.5-3.9GHz RAM: 16GB DDR3 1600MHz Video Card: Intel Iris Pro 5200 Storage: 2x128GB SDD RAID0 Audio: ASUS Xonar U3 USB Sound Card + Audio-Technica ATH-M50 headphones Screen: 13.3" - 1920 x 1080 IPS + 27" Dell P2715Q IPS 3840 x 2160 Keyboard: Filco Majestouch MX Cherry Blue Mouse: Logitech MX518

RE: Locked Skylake can be overclocked soon
if you have an asrock z170oc or msi z170 then overclock guide has put the new bios up on their download board. they took an i5-6400 up to 4.7M stable and run the the benches as well as an i3. really impressive in single and multithreaded benches with the exception of the pentium on multithreaded as would be expected.

the caveat being that the timing source for the bclk is also the timing source for the dram so those higher frequency kits will come in handy. also for some reason or the other the temp monitoring sensor does not work with this bios and reads 100 no matter what app you use so it would be wise to keep voltages below 1.4. they achieved those results with 1.375v on a x61 kraken cooler but saying that the i3 can be ran on weaker air coolers.

good luck
