Biostar H87/81 and B85 Motherboards Enables BIOS Overclocking

The Haswell collection of central processing units from Intel (fourth-generation Core-Series) needs a motherboard powered by a Lynx Point chipset.

The ones enabled by the Z87 chipset have no problem overclocking, while the H87, B85 and H81 lack the capacity, unless motherboard makers do something about it. Biostar decided to be one of the makers that did something about it. Long story short, it has launched a BIOS that enables overclocking on mainboards built with the H87, B85 and H81 core-logic sets.

All it takes is to adjust the CPU ratio from BIOS settings and voila! A higher core clock. It doesn't hurt that the UEFI BIOS is very comprehensive, as seen in the picture included in the press release. Even people new to overclocking should have an easy time figuring it all out.
