Ok then how would I unlock the BIOS? Install a new BIOS specifically for the overclocking?

Again, you can't. The BIOS is writen buy compac, just for your motherboard, and its nearly impossible to find another to work.

Is it possible to make my own BIOS script to be able to overclock it?

Pulled from another forum after a quick Google search:
Quote:
BIOS is stored on a chip on the motherboard. You would have to know machine code plus have the manufacturing specs for every chip and circuit on the board, so in a nutshell, no, you can not create your own BIOS.
You might be able to do a small overclock using software, but everything I've read says its extremely difficult to get a stable system using software instead of BIOS.

Actually, many people have stable OCs using software like AMD Overdrive or whatever (not that I recommend that type of OC).

Anyways, try Clockgen.
