Why can't I oc the i3 ? Motherboard restriction ? What kind of motherboard (chipset) should I buy if want to oc ?
What about the Pentium G630 (oc, price, performances) ?
You can only overclock K-series such as i5 2500K/3570K due to them having unlocked multiplier. Unlike 1st generation i3/i5/i7, 2nd and 3rd generation can't be overclocked via BCLK.
Edit: Forgot to mention, if you plan on upgrading to i5/i7 ####K in the future, H61 won't let you overclock. I'd recommend getting cheapest Z75 board you can find to have the ability to upgrade in the future.
