Unfortunatly, the BIOS is OEM locked, nothing can be done about it I'm afraid

The Asus M2N78-LA is a prebuilt PC OEM motherboard. Lack of overclocking options has to do with prevention of user tweaking and error (as per OEM decision) and unsuitable VRMs for overclocking on the motherboard.

I've never thought about this until I read this forum but is it possible to flash the BIOS of an OEM machine? Or is it locked? I've never really owned an OEM laptop/desktop so I've never
been in an OEM BIOS.

I was able to overclock my old Dell computer with Ntune.<<< Download that and see if you can change your FSB.

Set FSB 2nd, you would have to find your PLL chip on your Motherboard though thumb.gif
