Is it possible to overclock an I5 4570 3.20 GHz? (Non-K)

Or possibly increase the GHz, ive heard theres some "turbo" something but just simply googling and looking doesnt work.

I might aswell ask a community that might know alot more about this.

Other specs; (In case it was needed.)
MSI R9 380 Gaming 4 GB (Yes.. Games.. its all for games.)
Motherboard: MS-7823 (Ive seen this is important to.. for some reason.)

Im really careful when it comes to this, when i mean this, i mean configuring my pc.

Which im fairly certain im afraid ill screw up somehow, as ive seen friends burn up laptops and some GTX, thats some explaination why im afraid to "over-heat" this pc.

Back to the question, is it possible to increase CPU-strength/GHz?

    Your processor is not overclockable, you need a K processor to overclock. Your processor runs at base 3.2Ghz and when needed it used turbo boost to 3.6Ghhz. You can unpark your cores for a very minor performance gain.

    With a non K processor only very very limited MBs allow to overclock any processor (and is something that intel want to avoid at all cost), i dont known the concrete case for your main board but im almost 99% sure that you can't.

    Anyway for example for Z170 you have pages like this one (http://overclocking.guide/intel-skylake-non-k-overclocking-bios-list/) that give you the concrete models (and firmwares) you need to check if the MS-7823 you have and the concrete bios it have allow you to OC.
  3. On 4th gen haswell, no not really. You can try increasing your base clocks some but you likely won't get much gain there. Instead of the default 100mhz, maybe 103-104mhz which when paired with the 32 multiplier would give an extra 100mhz or so clock speed. Instead of 3.2ghz it would run at 3.3ghz in that example. Turbo boost enables it to automatically increase speed depending on temps and how many cores are under full load. Base clock overclocking is pretty restricted though before it bsod's and the gains are hardly worth it. It also increases ram speed and other things aside from just the cpu doing it that way which is why it becomes so unstable so quickly.

    Typical overclocking would involve a z series motherboard and a k series cpu, ie a 4670k or 4690k. Cpu's with the k after them have unlocked multipliers and z series boards include additional options to play with those settings. That way the baseclock (which is tied to other parts of the pc) can remain safely at 100mhz for stability and just the cpu multiplier can be raised to gain 300, 400, 500mhz etc.

    Thanks for the answer, ive seen freinds unlock their cpu's for testing purposes, but i bet ill just kill mine if i tried.

    Thank you anyways :)

  5. You can lock the max boost to all 4 cores instead of 2 cores.. but thats about it.
