I'm using OC bios unless you're talking about the beta bios that starts with an f#(a-e). Other than that, I don't see my motherboard listed. But I remember seeing someone using the same motherboard I have and was able to OC to 4.5GHz also had the list of beta bios/OC bios for my motherboard. But i need to know the specific beta bios/OC bios that I need to use cause I have tried using f5c f5d and f5e(currently using).
