Can I push even more i5 3470 ( from 3.2 GHz to 3.8 GHz )

Hy guys,
finally managed update BIOS to UEFI after few days of hassle with Gigabyte Z68AP-D3.

I have i5 3470 and I managed to tweak settings in BIOS and overclock it to 3.8 GHz on all four cores.

This is locked CPU so I want to push it even more because I saw few screenshots even at 4.1 GHz without BLCK raising.

These are current BIOS settings :

Is there possibility to push it to 4 GHz on all four cores ?

Here is screenshot of current status.

BIOS settings are pretty much same as here in video :

It might be a possibility just watch your temperatures and voltages that they don't get to high, 3.8GHz is pretty good enough for a locked processor, but you can try and bump it up to 4GHz as long as you aren't pushing the voltages.

But how when I have max x38 multiplier in BIOS and that is 3.8 GHz in Windows.

I should have x40 but I dont why I cant choose x40 mad.gif

BLCK raising to 104. isnt recommendable ?

Can i force x40 somehow on GB Z68 mbo ?
