ECS MCP61PM-HM Rev 1.0A BIOS Flash

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to get a usable rig together for my friend to use at an upcoming LAN party we're attending. I have most of the parts from an old HP OEM rig, a pair of 80GB SATA HDDs salvaged from school, and another friend is donating his old 6670 (Not the best card but it did the job last LAN so it should do the same again). The CPU in the computer is an Athlon 64 3800+, which I think if I put my Phenom II 955's stock cooler on and ghetto rig a fan adapter to use the 120mm BM off my Hyper 212 EVO instead of the normal 80mm I should be able to OC enough to cut it (we're mostly going to be playing Xonotic, CoD4, Minecraft, and if we get it working maybe Garry's Mod).
Unfortunately the BIOS is locked and I can't get into any of the overclocking functions. There's a few revisions of this board (4 that I know of) and I've seen some BIOSes that work with the Nettle2 and Iris8 (Rev 1.0B) and one or two that work with the Nettle3 (Rev 2.1) but I am yet to find any that work for the original Nettle (Rev 1.0A). Does anyone know where I can find a suitable BIOS to flash onto this board, or how I can OC well on it without access to the BIOS functions?

HP boards are locked and don't allow overclocking of any kind. But if you're playing @ 1080p, the bottleneck would be the 6670 & not the 3800+. So dont worry about oc'ing:thumb:
btw, I have the 6670 (880MHz) in my other rig and it shocks me how well the fps are when turning off AA, I even played crysis & metro with it at 1920x1080....... the little engine that could.

We won't be at 1080p, most likely 1280x1024 (We have a spare monitor at that resolution). And I know the HP BIOS doesn't allow it, hence asking if anyone knew of a compatible BIOS mod that I could flash so as to unlock overclocking features. Or if anyone knows what PLL/clock generator it has I could give SetFSB a shot.
