can i overclock a Xeon E5-2697 v2 on my socket 2011 mb ? it s from 2012.

it s a good deal, but i can t use it at 2.7 GHz, i need at least 3-3.4 GHz
 
I'm pretty sure those Xeons have a locked multiplier. You would have to do a base clock overclock.

*Edit: Also, that Xeon has a Turbo Boost of 3.5GHz, which is only for a single-core at a time; but the all-core turbo should be at or above 3.0GHz.
