Yes you can but be warned it's a difficult process getting it stable any higher then 4.2 ghz Also if you do so I hope you have suitable cooling sealed water loop or aftermarket air cooler Haswell Overclocking Thread [With Statistics]

Is it a K series Tews? You may struggle if not, but I think you can still oc a little on non K series.

I was just reading the other thread on your pc Tews, I think usually dell will take any overclocking options out of the bios. I think really you will need to stay at stock, but the good news is that it is a very powerful CPU at stock and will be more that powerful enough for anything you ask of it.

Yep, my i5-4670k at stock is a great processor and makes mincemeat out of anything I do. I wish I hadn't rush ordered and gone for the 4770 instead, but hey-ho. I'll upgrade someday. You'll love your new system with that CPU Tews, it's a monster.

Mine is up to 4.623 (1.34v) but I had to work pretty hard to get there, allot of things to adjust. This is my hardest OC to date and I would not use it for 24/7, only for benching. I keep it at 4.4 and I have great temps on not so bad voltages (1.26v), I'm on a Corsair H100i water loop in push/pull config. It also depends on the batch number of the CPU itself, some Overclock better then others, I have a so so chip so I can't get much more out of it.

I have had no problems overclocking mine just be sure not to run benches on adaptive settings otherwise the voltage will sky rocket
