Hi,

Probably the easiest way is to first download the latest BIOS from the asus site.

http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguag...

Product: Motherboard
Series: LGA1366
Model: P6T Deluxe or P6T Deluxe v2

Choose your OS and then select the latest BIOS from the BIOS section, you can install this using the ASUS update program which you should have on you driver CD or if not you can get from the 'Other' section of the downloads page.

As for overclocking there's a whole section on it in the Forums, read up as much as you can and make sure you know as much as possible before you try it.

I'm a bit leery or bios updates. I was told they can be dangerous by possibly creating more problems than they solve.

In the Owners Manual for Gigabyte UD4
Quote:
It is recommended that you not alter the default settings ( unless you need to ) to prevent system instability or other unexpected results. Inadequately altering the settings may result in system's failure to boot. If this occurs, try to clear the CMOS values and reset the board to default values....


But I'm still a greenhorn learning as I go. Never tried any kindof board updates myself.
