I believe this is a locked processor: meaning you can't over-clock it with multipliers. You might be able to over-clock it, on a capable motherboard, by changing the BUS clock.

But you have to be very careful as that also over-clocks memory and maybe even PCIe bus at the same time. Over-clocking PCIe can be devastating as it could very quickly lead to hard drive data corruption that leaves the drive inaccessible, as they are frequently intolerant of overclocking on the PCIe bus.
