supposedly the 965P

The only way I've found to OC these boards is by "tricking" the BIOS into OC'ing by setting the FSB rate, hitting F10 and the second you press "enter" you have to hit the PSU turn off switch to kill the power. Upon restarting BAM, you're now OC'ing.
The catch is that you have to completely shut down the system if you want to restart, if you click "restart" from Windows, it will reset your FSB clock on restart.
My bios is up to date, just updated it with @BIOS before I attempted overclocking.
Seriously sucks about having the wrong version.. Maybe newegg will replace it with the new version? Doubt it though since it's not under warrenty anymore. Any other way to get it replaced with the new version for free?
