    The B85/ H97 chipset is not made for OCing the CPU (doesn't work with the CPU multiplier), can get a bit of an OC by raising the BCLK.
    Still i would advice you against it - anything you do to them will hamper and expose your PC to risk.

    If you are getting confused by the manuals or the OC genie present, DONT.
