hi i have an asus cm5571 and i like overclocking my procesor well oem bios wont allow it and the only "almost" exact after market mobo i can find is the p5ql-vm/epu but its got ddr2 and i talked to asus and they said there is a 90percent chance that it will brick the bios chip. but i found one that might work i just want some advice first.

might work

Well, the one you've mentioned is close to your original board but you have a million other and better options..... that will support all that is already inside your rig plus giving you options for more....
Here is a list of them, you can check out all of them which support your processor and your RAM.

no i should have been a little bit more specific
i want to flash my bios to an after-market overclockable setting
but the asus p5ql-vm is the only one i know of so far thats just like mine but with ddr2 instead of ddr3
and i dont want to brick my mobo so i was looking for advice on another asus mobo with the same controllers and stuff to use the bios file to flash from

Oh ok...... and i thought you wanted to change the board..... no you cannot flash that particular bios onto your old mobo, it will for certain brick it..... plus you might end up with a few absolutely dead components.....

ya thats what i was worried about would the p5ql-vm work the only thing thats different is the memory
but the part i dont know is whats the real diff between the ddr3 controller and the ddr2 controller?

Bandwidth , Number of power lines, Information Lanes etc etc everything is different in the two controllers..... by having similar voltages it doesn't make them the same.
So if you have a DDR2 controller instead of a DDR3 controller then firstly the bios is not going to find the circuitry for the DDR2 on the Mobo since it doesn't exist... secondly the DDR3 on the board is not going to be recognized or controllable from anywhere since the mobo can't figure out what it is or where it is....
