need some help w/ mobo

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
hihi every1, i have a "retail" setup and i can't OC my cpu because of that. So im wondering if it would be possible to snap another bios on it or w/e so i can oc it a little.

CPU: Intel Core i7 870
Motherboard: Aspire M3910
memory: 4g ddr3
graphics: msi geforce n460 hawk

so if you have any ideas if i could unlock it it would be much appreciate, im currently playing sc2 and my processor is slightly to slow to support higher graphics, so im not looking for anything crazy anyway ^_^ thx!

oh and if u need more info on w/e let me know

Even with a BIOS flash you wont be able to OC with that OEM board as far as I can tell. Have you overclocked your GPU to increase FPS already? I believe that is the highest CPU you can get with that set up my best honest opinion would be to save up and get a decent board that can overclock since that CPU should do pretty well with good cooling.

Welcome to OCN by the way!
