Default Overclocking I5-6400 on ASUS Z170-E

Is it possible to overclock an Intel I5-6400 CPU on an ASUS Z170-E motherboard with latest UEFI BIOS 3007 (11/29/16)?

I've done a ton of web reading and watching videos, and it seems Intel has blocked overclocking non-K CPU's, even with a modified BIOS.

Am able to overclock the memory (and GTX 1050 TI GPU), but nothing I've tried gets the CPU to actually run above 3.3mhz.

Thanks.

You will find a suitable BIOS here, I hope it works for you when you downgrade with BIOS flash

I was not willing to go to a back level BIOS, so didn't try it.
