Hello Overclocking Kings and Queens (Gender Equality) :p

I have a i5 2500k stock and a intel DH61WW motherboard.

I tried to go into the bios to overclock because i am trying to get around 4.2 to 4.5ghz but i dont see any options to clock it higher than stock. just intel's boost clock which i dont know what that does.

I had a quick look online and i seen some people saying they have done it and some saying that it can't be done. i found a thread where a guy said that you can't overclock cpu's on "H" boards only the onboard graphics. He then stated that to overclock the 1155 socket i need either "P" Board or "Z" board.

I want some information or confirmation before i start tearing apart my PC and spending between £40-60 on a Z77 board.

Any help or guidance would be Greatly Appreciated!
