nForce 680i SLI BIOS question

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hey,

I'm trying to overclock my Intel q6600 processor. But since i have a Dell computer my BIOS are locked. I'm assuming that there are other versions of BIOS out for my motherboard that will allow me to overclock...

Is this even possible?

thanks

(I wasnt sure if i should put this in the intel or nvidia forums, so if its in the wrong place please move it)

If you have a dell, and your bios is locked, you can't o/c it. I believe there are other options, but they aren't good!

Let me guess, you got the XPS 720? I had a XPS 710, i wanted to OC, but couldn't. So i had to buy a new board, but if flashing BIOS from like EVGA works for you... then i'm going to hate life
