What performance gain can I expect from overclocking an i5 6600k?

    So currently I have an i5 6600k with a GTX 1060 6GB graphics card. Unfortunately back when I purchased my CPU I made a mistake and purchased a motherboard that doesn’t let me overclock my CPU.

    What I’m wondering now is how much of a performance gain can I expect by overclocking this CPU to let’s say 4 ghz (it’s air cooled). A new motherboard would also enable me to buy higher frequency RAM.
    Or should I just buy new motherboard and a better CPU than this i5?

    please note that overclocking can cause problems -
    if there is a budget new board or wait and then upgrade properly (a few weeks ago I switched from i7 2600/1060 to ryzen 7 3700 2070super and it was expensive but worth every cent!)

    That 4C/4T processor wont help you much anymore, even overclocked. And if you already considering swaping motherboards then 6/12 processor should be absolute minimum if you will buy somthing new this day. Recommended buying new platform should be prob 8/16 processor.
    So for budget oriented should look 3600 and bit more with 3700 paired with some decent b450 board. Noone in their right mind should buy anything from intel unless they go for absolute peak of gaming with 2080 super or 2070 super at this point in time.
    That 1060 will hold you longer than that processor.
