As the title says - Is it possible to overclock my i5 4690k on this motherboard?

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.

There seems to be a lot of conficting information on weather its possible to OC this motherboard.

Can anyone share or know which bios version is unlocked?

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.
