Overclocking the Processor (CPU)

Hello,

I own an HP OMEN 870-224 desktop with an Intel Core i5-7400 on an Odense2-K motherboard I am wondering if 

     1. the CPU is unlocked and overclockable?

     2. what cooling/power supply upgrades I may need in case it is possible?

     3. if it is all possible, what software would you recommend for me to use - the omen command does not allow me to do anything? 

I know the motherboard has a "K" in it meaning it can be overclocked but does the same go for my CPU?

Overclocking the Processor (CPU)

@Mongoose24 , welcome to the forum.

 

Q:

I own an HP OMEN 870-224 desktop with an Intel Core i5-7400 on an Odense2-K motherboard I am wondering if

1. the CPU is unlocked and overclockable?  No, as you menntioned, the processor must have a "K" to be unlocked and overclockable.  None of the processors that are compatible with your motherboard can be overclocked.

 

2. what cooling/power supply upgrades I may need in case it is possible?  Not applicable.

 

3. if it is all possible, what software would you recommend for me to use - the omen command does not allow me to do anything?  Not applicable.

 

I know the motherboard has a "K" in it meaning it can be overclocked but does the same go for my CPU?  The "K" in the motherboard description has nothing to do with the ability for the processor to be overclocked.
