No, you can't use core ratio oc with Haswell i5 or i7 K cpus on on any board not using a Z87 or Z97 chipset board. You might only be able to increase BCLK to about 103Mhz but that wouldn't justify buying an unlocked cpu.

It is NOT officially supported for oc. Many users that have been mislead by reports on the internet complained about lacking oc abilities. I don't know how these particular cases are set up but neither Intel allows oc on non-Z boards (except for Pentium Anniversary Edition) nor MSI confirms breaking Intel rules. In the past MSi always went by Intel rules.
