Asus bios with no overclocking? help.

Hello, i recently purchased a PC from ebuyer, with a processor which is apparently running well within it's limits.

it has an Asus motherboard (P5G41T-M LX2/GB) and Bios (0408) I have checked the bios and it appears that there is no way to OC in there (all relevant parts greyed out)

So as (it seems) it cannot be OC'd via bios what would be the best way to OC this?

here is a DL link to the Bios if needed.

  1. no bios suitable for overclok you remain at that
  2. so you do not recommend program based overclocking?

    what about the asus overclocking utility...
  3. if in the original driver cd you do not find these software overclock programs , it's mean will not support overclocking . motherboard with a record locked, if you want, Get motherboard that OCable.

    Using the BIOS is much better.

    Unless that is you only choice - if it will work.
  5. Is there not a way to enable the greyed out oc features? I haven't seen an asus board you can't oc.
  6. The clock which drives the CPU is on the motherboard. If you can overclock you can often change the settings for that clock from within your BIOS directly or through software from within Windows. The result is the same.

    If the BIOS software (or even the motherboard hardware) does not support overclocking there is absolutely nothing that can be done.

    Long story short, if you can't overclock from your BIOS you can't overclock.
  7. I am using an unlocked version of BIOS version 0504 (dated 2014). This reveals a hidden overclocking menu option. It's fairly limited but I am running a Core 2 Duo 3.13GHz (E8500) quite happily. This processor is not officially supported in the P5G41T-M LX2/GB motherboard. I will try to find the source where I downloaded this version and post it here. If not then I can supply it via Email.
