I do believe it will overclock a 2500K, if that is your question. Looking at the VRMs and the power components it looks like it will be pretty limited on the overclock side. It probably even has a voltage limit in the BIOS, but I don't have direct experience with the board. Generally MSI assigns a number to their boards and the lower the further down the chain it is. I believe the flagship is GD80>GD65>GD55>G45 and logically putting the G41 at the very bottom of the list. Not knocking the board though, it is going for $72 after rebate on Newegg so take that into account. If you are looking for a mild overclock I think it would probably work just fine.
