new user needs help unlocking his acer branded foxconn MB + OCing X2 3800+ toledo

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I posted this in amd motherboard thread a few days ago but wasn't getting the response I was looking for. I am new to these forums and looking to be a first time overclocker. I have a socket 939 with an AMD athlon X2 3800+ @ 2.0Ghz and 2GB PC-3200 DDR. I have an I have an Acer E360 PC with a foxconn 6150K8MA-8EKRS motherboard on it. Acer disables the bios options to adjust voltage and multiplier and only allows CPU frequency adjustments. After spending hours looking for people who have unlocked this motherboard with the official foxconn bios I have found a few people able to do it, but it involves force flashing the bios. I was planning on force flashing with USB, is this feasible? Is there any user friendly utilities you recommend for force flashing? I was wondering if anyone has flashed this motherboard before and has any advice how to do it? I will also post a few links where I have read people doing this. Also, once it is flashed, is there a good noob tutorial on how to safely overclock an X2 3800+? Thank you very much!

Here are some of the links I was reading.
