Can't change multiplier above 36

Cpu: i5 3570k
I am having a problem with my motherboard.
The motherboard has a standard clock multiplier of 34, I am only able to change it to a maximum of 36 despite my 'k' series cpu.
The problem appears to have occurred in other motherboards and the solutions are generally to update the bios to most recent release.
I have used '@bios' to update to the f6 bios but to no avail.
Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated.

  1. The H77 series of motherboards doesn't offer overclocking.

    That would be the Z75, Z77, P67, and Z68 chipsets.

    Here's a good image from Puget Systems.
  2. Thank-you for your response.
    Well that is a shame, I shall have to look into finding a cheap replacement board or live with it for the foreseeable future.
  3. You really don't have to overclock, the 3570K is plenty fast.
