    Bump fsb, cousin got i3-2100 to 3.9GHz. But that was on MB which had prebuilt options for fsb/bclk OC.

    Side note, on usual board you will have troubles with memory, PCI slots, SATA and in general may fry some components :)

    Your CPU without "K" is bad because OC may be not easy to be higher speed than stock speed due to the multipiler locked.

    Yeah I know that k series are the best to over clock,
    I just want to max out an i3 to its max possible clock rates...

    Everything is tied to the 100 baseclock. The only way you can oc that cpu is raising the baseclock. I wouldn't do it.

    Short answer: It will mess up things.

    Many things are tied to base clock so changing it will also affect those other things too (not just the CPU or memory clock speed) and those can't usually take it.
