Robert, you have a -K part, which officially "doesn't forbid"
overclocking as far as I know, and this is the only reason I have not
immediately closed this bug as invalid.
It looks like now you get to find out if that means Intel *supports*
overclocking or not on -K processors, instead of just passively not
blocking it outright: start with ASUS support, it is possible that a
properly updated BIOS/UEFI would still allow overclocking on the new
For the record, updating the MSRs for overclocking *after* the microcode
is loaded on the processor, as opposed to updating the microcode *after*
the overclocking was done by the UEFI/BIOS *can* make all the
difference. That means your BIOS/UEFI needs to have the latest
microcode update (and you won't need the intel-microcode package).
If ASUS can't help you, good luck contacting Intel about this...
