R4 Bios A6 no longer lets you set the clock for overclocking

Jump to solution

I installed Alienware R4 A06 Bios today and found that I can no longer change and set the Clock to 43 43 43 43 43 43 as with A05 Bios.

They are locked it down at 41 38 38 38 38 38.

What a true bummer. I guess my testing with EVGA x79 & Z77 MB are the way to go.

1st time Dell "Alienware" has really let me down with a Bios update for over 10 years.

Back to building my on Gaming PC

bcavnaugh,

We apologize for the loss of manual overclock settings with the installation of Bios A06 on the Aurora-R4. We are working on Bios A07 which will correct this oversight. We do not have an ETA on the release. You cannot "downgrade" the Bios to A05 once you loaded A06. For now, please use the automatic Overclock Load Level 1 & 2.
