Is my Trident 3 i5 8 series incapable of overclocking/turbo boost?

My ghz are currently running at 2.8. I wanted to squeeze a little more power out of my system, but my BIOS looks like it's missing the overclocking options that I see other MSI Bios guides have. Is anybody familiar with this situation? Apprently, the i5-8400 is locked, and cannot be overclocked. However, intel turbo boost should be an option. I realize this PC is a couple of years old now, but it has been sort struggling to do different things related to gaming (older games) and streaming from the get-go. Overclocking was going to be my last effort at making improvements. Anyway, any help you can provide would be awesome.
