    Default P8Z68-V Pro - how to OC an i5 2500K in BIOS?

    I'm trying to figure out how to OC my i5 2500K in the BIOS for my P8Z68-V Pro. I've checked the CPU configuration and it looks like I can't do so because the BIOS says that the CPU ratio range is 16-33.

    I'm using latest BIOS (0651). I'd put up a printscreen of what I see but the F12 PrintScreen function doesn't detect my flash drive even though it's plugged in (doesn't appear on the list of flash drives to select from).

    Have you typed in 45x? Or used the + key to increase CPU multi? Does the oc software oc higher than 33x for you?
