Hello,

Is your i5 processor a 2500 or 2500K?  The K means it is an unlocked processor and can be overclocked in the BIOS.  That's probably as simple as it gets.  If your processor is not a K model then I'm not sure how to proceed.

Another thing too, your processor has turbo boost technology so it will overclock itself up to 3.7 GHz when it deems necessary to do so and safely too so it can reduce its speed if it gets too hot, but this will probably be overridden by overclocking in BIOS.

Here is also a video about overclocking on that particular motherboard:

In the newest processor series Intel introduced the "K" series processors, these are the only processors capable of overclocking. If you don't have the "K" edition don't even bother overclocking since the method explained in the video in the comment above (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wnH0luwrcfE) won't work at all. Using other methods you might be able to get another 100Mhz out of it.
