You can only overclock it by adjusting the base clock (BCLK) of your system. That doesn't scale much because it will overclock your other components too.

okey.. so it´s possible then? not much, but possible... I will be glad if I can push it up to 3,5 GHz

I'm sorry to say, but you should be happy just to get it to 3.4 GHz.

I wouldn't mess with the BLK anyways.
if you want to overclock then sell it and get a K series chip.
making your unit possibly unstable for less than a 5% performance increase is not wise..

you´re right ... Im not going to do that.... better leave it like that and later buy something better :)  tnx

disable 'speed spectrum' option in the BIOS.
there your BLK will stay @ 100 instead of fluctuating.
you can do that now with your i3.

and when you get the K series chip come on back and we'll clock her up... :)
