Need help with intel desktop board overclock (DH87RL)

Hello guys I recently purchased an Intel DH87RL motherboard and an Intel core i7-4770K processor. I have read that these processors have lots of potential or over clocking and that is what I am trying to do. My problem is that when I enter the Intel visual BIOS and try to change the core multiplier it will not let me it also does not let me change the turbo core ration. The only thing it lets me change is the v-core voltage and watts but nothing else. Does anyone know if there is a setting that I need to move to allow me to change the those setting? Thanks! Your help is greatly appreciated!

    That MB has an H87 chipset which does not OC: http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/motherboards/desktop-motherboards/desktop-board-dh87rl.html
    You need a Z87 chipset to OC, in addition to a K processor.

    You're quite welcome! I hope that you can exchange that for a more OC friendly board.
