    If it doesnt have a K on the end of it like 2500K or 2600K then no you can't really overclock it.

    As above, unfortunately that chip is not a k series CPU so doesn't have the unlocked multiplier you need to over clock properly.

    You can only slightly over-clock it the old fashioned way (that being said, what is your motherboard)?

    Don't bother, even if you could notch up the BCLK enough to even notice a difference you'd have a dead cpu very quickly. Best left at rated speeds mate.

    It's an i5-2400, unless you're buying an Acer all-in-one PC, in which they've decided to brand it the i3
    Corsair 600T | Asus Sabertooth Z77 ATX | Intel i5-3570k | Corsair H100i | Corsair Vengeance LP Black 16GB | EVGA GTX670 2GB | PNY GTS250 512MB | Mushkin Chronos 240GB

    updates in what sense? the chip is locked to those frequencies for hardware reasons not by the bios/software
