I5-6600k on h170 chipset

Hi I just received my mobo it has an h170 chipset. Can I oc my i5-6600k at all on this mobo. I know it needs a z170 but can I oc at all on my mobo. If I can't should I replace the mobo or just not oc? Thank you.

  1. You cannot overclock on that motherboard, but don't worry, you won't need to. If anything, I would send the cpu back before I sent the motherboard back.

    Can't know that without knowing what motherboard you have...
  3. I have a gigabyte h170 gaming 3
  4. "H170" is enough information for us to know you cannot overclock on it.

    Have you already bought a cpu cooler? If not, send the 6600k back and get an i5 6500.
  5. I've already bought a cooler
