Motherboard: Acer Aspire G7750
Bios: American Megatrends Inc. P01-A3 04/22/2010

Trying to unlock "as cpu-tweaker calls it" "MC_CFG_space Locked." so my i7 950 can utilize the full capabilities of my ram. "1333mhz 7-7-7-20"

Is there any way around the bios, or am i stuck at 1066mhz 8-8-8-24?

You can flash the BIOS with an update, but make sure you have a way to restore the original BIOS: you don't want to brick your mobo.

i checked acers website, they have what looks like a p01-a4 bios but im not sure if im supposed to use p01-a4 as im currently on p01-a3. Also i don't even know how to backup my original bios (copy to a disc?). also the p01-a4 doesn't say anything useful so im not even sure it will do anything. suggestions?
