I wasn't able to adjust my CPU ratio with this board until BIOS version 1101. If you haven't got it already, it might be worth getting the latest BIOS version for the board, as that may help.

you cant modify the ratio because you dont have an unlocked processor, no matter what motherboard you get you are not going to be able to modify the ratio, the only way you can is to upgrade to either an engineer sample, or a core 2 duo

Hmmm, that's odd. I got my retail E6600 online and after BIOS 1101 I was able to adjust the ratio, which previous BIOS versions didn't allow me to do... My CPU isn't an ES.

AhX: Try the latest BIOS version, if it doesn't help, it may well be that your CPU just doesn't have the capability to be adjusted in that way.

Just Update it from Windows, using the Asus Update software. It's much easier than messing with floppies .

Once I installed the 1101 BIOS I was able to change from 9x (stock multi) to 8x, 7x or 6x. There was no option to change up unfortunately, so if that's your goal, the BIOS update might not help much, if indeed it does work for you.

Good Luck!

Aside from Windows, you know you can use a flash drive as well.

That's how I flashed mine for the very first time. It's also mentioned in the manual.
