    You could do a little bit of overclocking but I wouldn't try pushing the 4690k too far with that board. While some of the VRM's have been moved to the CPU with lga1150 processors, there are still some on the motherboard. Cheaper motherboards don't have as good of a CPU power delivery system as midrange and premium boards do.

    You'll also be limited by whatever CPU cooler you have installed in your system so if you have a stock cooler then don't even try. Overclocking makes the CPU use more voltage which causes it to run hotter. The Intel stock cooler is barely able to manage cooling the CPU at stock speeds. A cheap power supply will also hinder overclocking.
