bios version can be found in cpu-z.
Doesn't look easier or harder to OC.

sorry, I was a little vague, in the bios all I can do is raise the fsb, the multiplyer and voltage are both locked...

EDIT: in cpu-z it says under bios - Brand: Phoenix Technologies, LTD
Version: 6.00 PG
Date: 06/19/2003

how can I match that to a file called SP3917.BIN and awd822a.exe ??

You know that if you really wanted to OC that bad just raise the HTT, but I guess that you could flash the BIOS. Just look for updates.

What does HTT mean?

I don't want to overclock that bad, I just want be able to change voltage and multiplyer...

and here is an update quoted form earlier, (bios)

"in cpu-z it says under bios - Brand: Phoenix Technologies, LTD
Version: 6.00 PG

(new? bios I downloaded)


I'm just not entirely sure whether I want to use it or not... and/or how to use it..., i just recently updated the firmware of my dvd drive and it had a flash utility, but this is for the motherboard...
