i7 3820 stock core voltage? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
alienware use locked down bios, like the OP said they have warranties and don't want the users frying them and coming to them for replacement. I'm wondering if you could get a standard bios chip from the motherboard manufacturer, replace it and then go about your business (thereby voiding warranty) but I'm sure the bios chip could be replaced.

Edit: By 'they' I assume you mean Alienware?
Indeed, I mean the guys from Alienware (or Dell, whatever we should call them). smile.gif

Well, I'm not sure if the mainboard is just some generic (Intel) board rebranded by AW. But anyway, I've come across a forum where guys are hacking bios files and making hidden settings visible again. I'll post a request if someone can unlock the bios for my board.
