OC'ing MSI P965 Platinum

Hi I just bought a new cooler for my cpu with intentions of overclocking... I come to find that since I have BIOS 1.0 it seems as though the add voltage settings are locked... all i can do for the cpu is change the FSB which I can only do so much with w/o adding voltage... my question is am i missing something or do i need to flash my bios if i want to OC and secondly is it safe to flash my bios through MSI's live update system, as I'm unsure of how to flash the BIOS the normal way
Thanks

  1. Some people say not to flash bios with live update but I have done it a few times on different MSI boards without problems.
  2. ok i may give it a go... does anyone know if the reason i cant change the voltage settings is that I have the v 1.0 bios or am i just missing something completely? as the only reason im going to attempt a flash is so i can OC if i dont need to i dont want to try it haha... thx for the reply rolli
