Well you can change the BIOS's settings, but you can't 'change' the BIOS. Just go into the BIOS and find you clock settings. ASUS is great for OCing.

You can flash your BIOS to the latest available, if that's what you mean.

You can use an asus utility for it (forgot the name but you can prolly find it on their site) to flash it from windows.

It won't give you "more room to oc" though, it might give you some options that weren't available to you on the old BIOS, but in I doubt it it'll be anything crucial to oc

what i mean is that i can 'take out' the BIOS chip..
it is probably made for replacing damaged BIOS chip but can it be replace with other type of BIOS..?

Well, you could. You could take it out and flash it to nothing. Or attach vampire clips.

But I am betting you won't be able to build another BIOS that will work


BIOS is built with tools from makers (Phoneix, etc.) for each application (motherboard.)

Unless you have been sitting around compiling BIOS builds, I wouldn't recommend it.
