I thought all motherboards allowed at least a voltage change. You can try updating the BIOS. I doubt it will enable new features but it won't hurt

If you don't have that option in the BIOS I'd say you probably can't change it. Maybe there's some software that can do it...dunno tho

Did you try searching for overclocks using that motherboard? Maybe you'll find something
