Overclocking Newbie Needs HELP!

Hello Overclocking Kings and Queens (Gender Equality)

I have a i5 2500k stock and a intel DH61WW motherboard.
I tried to go into the bios to overclock because i am trying to get around 4.2 to 4.5ghz but i dont see any options to clock it higher than stock. just intel's boost clock which i dont know what that does.
I had a quick look online and i seen some people saying they have done it and some saying that it can't be done. i found a thread where a guy said that you can't overclock cpu's on "H" boards only the onboard graphics. He then stated that to overclock the 1155 socket i need either "P" Board or "Z" board.
I want some information or confirmation before i start tearing apart my PC and spending between £40-60 on a Z77 board.

Any help or guidance would be Greatly Appreciated!

Hello and welcome to OCN.
I'd suggest going to the Intel section and asking in there. This area is for intros only.
