    I5 2500k CPU - no manual overclock option in Extreme tune up -plz help! :)


      Hi guys,


      I'm fairly new at this but here goes. I purchased the I5 2500k (3.3gHz 4 cpus) with the intent to overclock one day. This day has come.


      I downloaded the Intel Extreme Overclocking utility. While there is an option for Advanced Tuning (all greyed out) and the other Benchmark Test  there is no option, whatsoever, for Manual tuning. It just doesn't show up anywhere. Does anyone know what gives? It's not that ancient of a board.. I hope it's still supported. All of my drivers are up to date, if that makes a difference. This would almost makes me think that this CPU is NOT overclockable, except everywhere I read says that it is, which is why I purchased it.


      I'm using Windows 10 w/ an AMD Radeon 6800. Just trying to get a little speed boost.


      Please, hoping someone can help!
