Oh this is the Anniv Pentium.

You can OC that it has an unlocked Multiplier.


Obviously.

You shouldn't go for a specific speed, but rather, increase the clockspeed slightly, test for stability, and if it works, go a bit further. If it doesn't, increase the voltage slightly and retest. If you hit higher temperatures than you like(I don't recommend going over 75c at most, tcase is rated for 72 and cores are typically ~5c higher) or you're using more voltage than you like(I don't recommend going over 1.27~ or so, chip is rated for 1.3 but most motherboards will try to overvolt the CPU to keep voltage stable, which can cause it to go above the set voltage in short bursts. Probably best to try to stay under 1.25 if you can.) then lower the clockspeed to the last stable voltage and clockspeed combination you had, and burntest heavily.(for several solid hours)

It's never about "I want this speed, so I'll overclock to that and just make it work!". Take it slow, see what you can get, and use what's comfortable.

Can't change my voltage anywhere what the hell

Any idea where it is

I have my i7 3770k overclocked to 4.5ghz on the stock cooler and it has never throttled because of heat. I may have an exceptionally binned product, but I think you will be fine. Only way to know is to test and see.

Looks like your board doesn't have any, actually.

The CPU throttles under extremely temperatures, but that throttle point is designed for sudden temperature spikes, not long-term temperature stability.

so I can't overclock

I am going to be furious if it's true can anyone confirm

what do you need to overclock for? OC'ing provides minor fps boost

And get a better heat sync.

But as someone else said, you'll gain minimal performance gains in games.
