Default intel 925ex clocking cap

hi everyone i have a problem im hoping you can solve.
i have a3.4ghz (s775) p4 and an intel 925ex mb. a vapochill pe cools the cpu (-2 at work)and watercooling for the rest. the cpu is clocked to 3.85ghz and as above it is running quite happily at -2.
the problem i have is that there is a cap of 10% overclocking in the bios ( the vapochill should keep the cpu cool in my estimate up to 4.5 -4.75 ghz) is there a bios update that will allow me to bypass the 10% limit or does anyone know how to get around this as i dont want to flash the bios if it isnt going to improve things.

Intel boards do not give you full control for overclocking, that is why you are so limited.

Your best bet is to find and unsupported BIOS that will work on that board, and not one officially released from Intel.
