Aurora R4 Bios A06 issue when overclocking

I was running my Aurora R4 i7 3930K @ 4.3 Ghz OC with an external cooler but when I upgraded to the A06 Bios from the drivers section of Dell website my i7 3930K returned to 3.2 Ghz. When I try to overclock manually it seems locked. It only gives me the 1st and 2nd Level OC but the max is 4.1 Ghz for the first Core, and barely 3.8 for the other five Cores. How can I set them to 4.3 Ghz? That's a disgrace what happened.

Hello Richard81s,

The BIOS A06 blocks the overclocking feature, it's an issue that we are aware of and a new BIOS is being released, the link is already available but it will take a couple more days for the download to be ready, it should be working by next week.

daddyz,

I again successfully used both IE and FF to download the file. I am in the USA and I downloaded from the USA Dell File Library. I see that you are in Malaysia. I don't know why that would matter though when it comes to downloading a file. I will take the file I downloaded from the USA Dell File Library and upload it to my share. Can you download it from there?
