    They would not of posted it overwise. Intel have done AMD A favour over a years in not allowing Overclocking on the lower end chips. Not been good for consumers though.

    Yep, full overclocking capabilities have returned, thanks to a few clever guys.

    I can't wait to unleash my 6320 under LN2 in the new year. :D

    PC sales are bad and Intel/partners need a boost, so this was 'accidentally' allowed. This happened previously with H87/H81 and Intel slammed the door immediately with high level calls by important people threatening all sorts of business/relationship repercussions.

    Will this require a Z chipset motherboard or will it be open to H or B chipsets as well. The way I'm reading it Z will be required for changing multiplier still but this is done by changing clock settings?

    We'll see as the BIOS' and more details roll out.

    Multiplier options are sometimes available on lower end chipsets, going down and up, but once you unlock the ability to change the BCLK with a beta BIOS, the ability to change the multi disappears. That's how it is, at least for now.

    Would I be right in thinking that as long as I have the right chipset, an i5 6400 would be just as good a bet as the i5 6600k?

    Kinda.

    Its limited to bclk speed of the board rather than the unlimited multi.

    Well, we've seen >150 BCLK hit on various boards so far. The only thing that will be different is that you'd have to play with the RAM dividers a little more to get your RAM speeds to work properly. :)
