I want to know if several motherboard chipsets are unlocked most important features I want: CPU multiplier adjustment, vCore control, and all the other standard features that overclockers like. Please tell me if these chipsets are locked, unlocked, or partially locked depending on the motherboard:
1: AMD 970
2: Intel B75
3: Intel Z75
I have always suspected that Z75 is overclockable, but I'm not completely sure.
Its the CPU that has to be unlocked not the motherboard. However the chipset and bios will effect the stability and extent you can overclock. But you also need to look at the features the board offers as those vary between models even of the chipset is the same.
