I think it's only supported on ASrock motherboards, but I'm not sure

AFAIK it is, but I'm just not sure about it because micro updates stopping it...

Huh, interesting. Just install the BIOS version that allows you to BCLK OC

I thought asrock were releasing boards specifically for it? Did they ever actually sell them?

But is it safe with all the Micro updates? Also, is it even worth it, I'm only saving £40.

I can just use this and not worry about it, can't it?
