As far as I know, it has the latest non-beta BIOS from ASUS.
I ran the ASUS BIOS updater and it couldn't find "proper" BIOS on any of their 3 FTP sites.

I have AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000+ Brisbane (I think) Socket A.
I read on NewEgg, people could overclock this easily... but today I found out that this CPU on NewEgg has been deactivated... what the heck? I just bought it last week.

Anyway, on the manual, it says on the AMD Overclocking Configuration:
"
Prcessor Frequency Multiplier
Allows you to select the processor frequency. Options:
[auto] (what I am using right now)
[x5.0 1000MHz]
[x6.0 1000MHz]
...
[x10.0 1000MHz]


Processor Voltage
Allows you to select the processor voltage. Options:
[auto] (what I am using right now)
[1.400V]
[1.375V]
[1.350V]
[1.325V]
[1.300V]
[1.275V]
[1.250V]
[1.225V]
[1.200V]
"

That's it. So how do I overclock it on this BIOS?

Thanks.

I have the M2V-MX mobo, which was originally built with a 3800+ 2.4 GHz single-core, BIOS 0411.

I just bought a 6000+ X2 'Windsor' for it -- but it locks up after about 2 minutes of booting the OS (Ubuntu 9.04).

This may be due to the BIOS; I'm going to try to flash it to the latest (1202). I know you need at least 0411, but there were two versions of this CPU (Windsor Rev F3) made, the 125W version (needs BIOS 0411) and the 89W version (needs 0904). I don't know which one I have -- there doesn't seem to be any easy way to tell.

If you get the 'Brisbane' 6000+ (Rev G2), you'll need BIOS 1101.

Updating the BIOS to 1202 did the trick -- no more lockups using the 6000+ X2.

I would keep trying to find a way to update your BIOS. I used EZ Flash within my original BIOS (0411), and it actually read the new BIOS file off a thumbdrive... (They also have updater tools that run from a booted DOS floppy.)
