Only Z77 can increase voltage and multiplier. You can OC the non-K slightly by increasing the BCLK, but its rarely stable and usually damaging and NOT RECOMMENDED at all. Besides the gains you would get by doing this is minimal. My suggestion : Leave it at stock. Azn Cracker a b à CPUs February 5, 2013 7:41:58 PM Ditto. You can't (much) overclock that cpu.
