B 150 chipset?

I want to buy an i 7 6700k and msi b150 pcmate. These chipsets are limited in overclock but i dont know what are the limits. Please, dont tell me to buy a z170 board. Just tell me whats the max freq. My motherboard has an overclock zone in the BIOS. Note: this motherboard is a b150 and h170 motherboard at the same time. Or the chipset is costum or it has got 2 chipsets. So?

  1. Here is a link to the differences among LGA1151 chipsets.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_1151

    All have some capability to overclock integrated graphics and BCLK.
    Only Z170 allows cpu multiplier overclocking.
    Normally, BCLK overclocking amounts to about a 2% potential.
    Some motherboard makers, notably ASROCK announced multiplier overclocking via BCLK, but Intel did not like that and the enabling bios levels were withdrawn.

    What does this mean to you?
    A I6-6700K will run at 4.0/4.4 on a B150 motherboard withoug any overclocking.
    That is what you should expect.

    If you were to buy a Z170 based motherboard, here is what you could expect:
    As of 5/2016
    What percent can get an overclock at a somewhat sane 1.40v Vcore.

    I7-6700K
    4.9 2%
    4.8 17%
    4.7 59%
    4.6 93%
    4.5 100%

    Your motherboard is B150, but there are very few differences from H170; there is only ONE chipset on the motherboard.

    Really, the I7-6700K at stock is as good as you can get without overclocking.
    If your primary use is for gaming, then the I7 hyperthreads will hardly be used, and a cheaper I5-6600K and a Z170 motherboard will be a better value.

    As of 5/2016
    What percent can get an overclock at a somewhat sane 1.40v Vcore.

    I5-6600K
    5.0 2%
    4.9 11%
    4.8 36%
    4.7 64%
    4.6 88%

    No raid. LOL amd fx cpus are more open to OC and raid but if i choose 1 i will not be able to upgrade a lot. About overclock, is there some limit frequency. Example: Cant overclock to 4.5 ghz. the limit is 4.4. I will not overclock a lot but only if the pc is getteing slow. In 3 or 5 years i can do that. I dont have the build. I just want to buy it so i want to know all the details. Whats my overclock limit (max oc. frequence)?

    Well, they still can, even B150 and H170:
