    Pretty much the answer is NO. Depending on what machine you have it is very unlikely they will have built overclocking features into the BIOS. 6th Gen i5s were usually not put into the higher end gaming rigs...

    I5-6400 will not have overclock capabilities. You need those CPUs having the "X" as the last digit for overclocking.

    Oops!

    I mean you need  CPUs with "H" as last digit for overclocking.
