  1. no, you'll need to purchase the "K" version.
  2. okay... But can I overclock 4670 ??
  3. Best answer
    That's because it is unlocked... Really, dude, are you going to bring out Pentium 2 as an example of Intel overclock next or something?

    I5-4670 non-K can't be overclocked, end of story.
  4. No dude, you can't, that's the whole point. You MAY be able to play with BCLK to some extent, but that is pretty worthless as far as overclocking goes.
  5. Hmm okay... But I have an AMD FX 6100 and I can overclock it without unlocking it... So whats with that?

    The answer to your question is no. However, like any other CPU, you can overclock by increasing front side bus speeds, ram speed etc - the old-school way that we have normally OC'd all along.
