So how does it work? Non-K Skylake processors are multiplier locked and motherboard manufacturers won't be able to circumvent this. Rather they have found a way to make base clock overclocking possible with nothing more than a BIOS update.

For example, the Core i3-6100 has a base clock of 100MHz with a 37 clock multiplier, effective for its 3700MHz operating frequency.
The clock multiplier will remain locked in non-K processors, but now you will be able to increase the base clock as far as your processor will allow. In our tests with the Core i3-6100 thus far, 127MHz was the highest stable base clock we could achieve. Multiplied by 37, that's a 1GHz overclock

I am bit sceptical about this bclk oc.

It might be different today but my prior experience is stability testing takes days for errors to show. The results we get public might be overly optimistic compared to what many endusers will experience after weeks of usage.

Let this have some time then we can better evaluate and compare to the multiplyer approach.
