Overclocking i5 6600k?

Hi guys! I'm new here and also new at OC anything (never done it before)

So here's my question: would it make sense to OC my CPU - i5-6600k - if i have a cheap Gigabyte MoBo and not some fancy Z series?

Thinking about OC my CPU for it not to be a bottleneck for my new GPU - Asus gtx 1650 Super 4 GB (gonna buy it next month)

P.S. here's my setup - https://pcpartpicker.com/list/Xg4np8

Overclocking isn't really supported on a non Z series motherboards from Intel, unfortunately.

You can overclock via baseclock but you are going to literally fry that board and set it ablaze if you do. VRM's are not made equal.

Simple answer is no overclocking on that board.
