BIOS chips are made on there own, and come packaged with the motherboard in the box. BIOS manufacturers have websites, and that is where you go to get the latest updates. You can usually go to emachines website and get the latest update there as well. Actually, if you click here you can download the latest updates for your BIOS. That is the emachine website.

No, every version of BIOS for that motherboard will be locked.

You can use clockgen to overclock if his motherboard is supported by it.

Intel Q9400 | Gigabyte EP45-UD3P | G.Skill 2x2GB DDR2 1000 | XFX HD5870
