    The non-K CPU's are multiplier locked, so the only way to OC on them is with the BCLK. On SB and IB CPU's, you can't really go too far with that because all system buses are tied to BCLK and when you go too far with it, it can cause damage to other components.

    I suggest that if you want to OC, just get the 3770K.
