I'm trying to figure out how to OC my i5 2500K in the BIOS for my P8Z68-V Pro. I've checked the CPU configuration and it looks like I can't do so because the BIOS says that the CPU ratio range is 16-33.

It should go higher than 33x,try loading optimized defaults, for 4.2ghz it would be 42x100,that mb and CPU go higher than 5ghz,using latest BIOS?

I'm using latest BIOS (0651). I'd put up a printscreen of what I see but the F12 PrintScreen function doesn't detect my flash drive even though it's plugged in (doesn't appear on the list of flash drives to select from).

Have you typed in 45x? Or used the + key to increase CPU multi? Does the oc software oc higher than 33x for you?

Here's a site you can check out,some BIOS settings/screenshots at the bottom of the page
