So i've recently upgraded the GPU in my gaming desktop from a GTX 970 to a GTX 1070ti.
Utilising the GTX 1070ti to it's full potential, I figured I should try to overclock my CPU (i7-2700k).
The problem is that the overclocking options seem to be missing in my motherboard's UEFI.
Under the setting CPU features in the overclocking menu, the 4 core's radio limits are missing.
I also can't seem to increase the CPU frequency multiplier above its stock value (3900Mhz).
What are my options? Can I try to flash an older UEFI version? Im currently running the newest software available (4.3)
Also worth mentioning: on my Windows 10 installation, the driver named Intel Management Engine seems to be missing.
When trying to install the newest version it gives an error message.

Board: MSI P67A-GD65 (non B3 version)

move to the cpu ratio press + or - to change it. it does not enlight but it should change anyway.
sorry im out of home and cannot check my bios version
if you are missing some options try a full bios clear (unplug the power from the psu and press the reset button for a few second).
good luck

Overclocking issues are to be expected when using a Sandy Bridge cpu on an Intel 6 series board with an ME8 bios. You can also not try an older bios as an ME8 bios is required to be able to use the GTX 1070 Ti.

Yup to OC with the later BIOS you would need Ivy Bridge CPU.

Sorry, I kind of forgot about this topic existing..
That makes a lot of sense Flobelix.  
So I guess my different components don't go well together to make overclocking possible. 
In that case I can forget about overclocking. 
Final option would be to replace the CPU with a newer generation.
Or just to replace the mobo and the CPU all together.
Anyway, I appreciate the help!

It makes no sense to replace the i7-2700K with an Ivy Bridge cpu. It is money wasted. There will be no real performance benefit anyway. To add the P67 board not even supports PCI-E 3.0 what the Ivy Bridge cpu could add on a Z68 (G3) or Z77 board. Use the system like it is until you can afford a complete upgrade
