Flashing bios is risky but if you want to try it heres where to go:

To get the Latest BIOS File:
http://support.asus.com/download/dow...model=M2N8-VMX

For the How-To go here, and go to page 47. (2.3):
http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/...3_m2n8-vmx.pdf

I suggest you wait a little bit longer and see if anyone can stir up some solutions for you before you try to flash BIOS.

Good luck.

Does it really matter. Chances are you will be able to overclock better on an 11x multi anyway. I have no facts to support this but I thought .5x multis tended to be less stable than rounded numbers.
The risks of messing the BIOS up with an update are small, but if the update does fail, you cold brick the mobo and have to RMA it. Make sure you know the full procedure before attempting a BIOS flash.

Flashing BIOS isn't really risky, in fact its something that you're supposed to do... its kinda like updating drivers... you COULD mess something up, but its pretty foolproof nowadays. Download the latest version, and put it on a flash drive, then reboot and press alt & F2. It should do the rest. Also, alot of the new mobos have programs that come on the CD that will do this for you. Sometimes all you have to do is download the file and it will automatically run.

EDIT:
Most Mobos have some sort of BIOS recovery feature/program.

And from what i hear, most of the older 939 systems perfered the whole number multi's, while the brisbanes seem to perfer the intigers (11.5, 10.5, ect)

Mercenary, not sure if this helps but apparently there was different BIOS versions that supported a few different 4400+ on your motherboard. Check it out: http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/c...model=M2N8-VMX

Good luck
