I3-8300 overclock help

Hi, im relatively new to the pc world and dont know very much so please forgive me if anything here sounds incorrect. One of my buddies was talking to me about overclocked my cpu. I thought that would be cool as it would boost the performance i get in game theoretically. As i was trying to do so by watching a guide i noticed that i was missing certain settings in the bios that the person i was watching had. As well as not being able to set the ratio of my cpu past the default of its 3.7Ghz. I dont know if i did something wrong or if im just stupid. Please help. My pc specs are in the file below

you need a "K" series cpu inorder to OC on the intel platform. You can however get a very slight increase in core clocks by raising the bclk if your bios has that option available to increase, but you may hit a wall over 105, and make sure your ram stays in spec.

**Intel System** Asus Z390E Strix / 8700k @ 4.85Ghz / 32GB BDie @ 3200 CL14 / PowerColor 5700XT / eVGA 850w PSU / Sammy 960 EVO m.2 / MX500 250gb games SSD / 49" Samsung UltraWide 144Hz

**Games Only** Asus Maximus Formula XII / i9 10900k @ 5.2GHz / 32gb 4x8GB Patriot Viper DDR4 4400 @ 4000MTs / 2080Ti / Everything watercooled using Dual Loops and many 420mm rads
