Default Not possible to overclock i5 2320?

I have the i5 2320 Quad Core 3GHz installed on my desktop PC. I realize that it is not part of the K series intel processors, but does that mean it is not possible to overclock? I wanted to get it up to 3.2 or maybe even 3.4 GHz and maybe buy a new heatsink for it. Thank you!

You can overclock most any CPU. It's just as long as you have the know-how. Have you ever OC'd before?

I did some overclocking on my friends computer after I installed another fan for the GPU. I haven't done much OCing on a CPU before, though. I realize I wouldn't get much of an overclock out of stock cooling, but maybe 200mhz?
