    This is Your Bios (sp40908.exe from HP) with HP SLIC 2.1 added.

    Looking at the Bios in AMIBCP there are NO Hidden Bios Setup Entries,
    everything this is in that Bios is Visable/Adjustable from the Setup Menu already.
    Any options you want would have to be added by you.
    There are many guides to adding options but most OEM MB's don't support the extra features many people want.
    OEM's Crippple these Bios so that they are stable and easier to support.
    The MB's the use are made specifically for them by the MB Manufacturer and don't usually support OC-ing, etc.

    Good luck with adding the features you want.
    I didn't research your specific MB but you never know.
    Do the reasearch and then you can determine if it is even worth the effort.

    Not a good idea to overclock, just buy a new cpu for the board. The board can support a 1333mhz fsb X5470 3.33Ghz Quad Core Intel Xeon with 12MB Cache. Just buy that cpu for $75 and call it a day it's a monster. Will require some attention to detail to remove the lga775 plastic pieces that need to be cut out and a LGA775 to LGA771 adapter then line up the Arrow on the CPU xeon with the Arrow on the LGA775 socket for orientation.

    On HP Boards the advanced bios can be obtained by repeat attempts of CTRL-ALT-F10 if it correctly detects the CTRL-ALT it'll boot to advanced F10 with fan options and what not.

    Don't overclock or you will fry the board, as is the MSOFETs get up to 49C which is hot enough on a X5470 3.33Ghz 12MB cache quad core beast cpu. The Northbridge and Southbridge require attention as-is. Repaste the northbridge/ southbridge for the best possible stability and temps.....

    Update bios to the latest and try the CTRL-ALT-F10 this applies to all HP Boards.

    Hey Chris, I'm planning to do the x5470 upgrade on my IPIBL-LB, can you please share the BIOS you used for your upgrade?

    Also, what heatsink fan combo did you use? Do you think the stock q6700 (TDP 105w) cooler is enough?

    Thank you.

    Hey how's it going?

    Yeah the X5470 is the best for the IPIBL-LB and it runs so nice. To be perfectly honest it will surpass an i7 920's stock L1 cache throughput. I have only tested an X5450, so I can only imagine what the X5470 is like. It's going to be exactly 11.1% faster than the X5450 (3.333 divides into 3.000, 1.111 times). For instance the X5450 has an L1 cache copy rate of 333GB/s, i7 920 by stock 2.66ghz hits 333GB/s. So the X5470 should do close to 400GB/s or beyond.

    BIOS wise I'm not sure but it's the latest according to the system it came from in the bios. Use a motion CTRL to F10 first ctrl then f10 because holding ctrl + f10 does not work, you must lift ctrl and f10 and hit ctrl + f10 a few times upon startup to load into "Advanced BIOS Mode".

    The CPU runs very cool on a stock cooler no higher than say 55C on a low end stock $8 cooler. Use arctic silver ceramique 2 and make a thick bead 1/2" long and wipe it evenly across the entire chip surface for excellent thermals. It's also only thermally conductive and not electrically conductive so no risk of shorting.

    Thanks

    *On another note*

    I'm running a Dual X5650 system at the moment with 24 threads. Runs so fast it's insane only $400. http://www.stikc.com/.

    No need the cpu will be detected on basically all bios, just install the latest from HP and you won't have an issue.

    There is no unlocking to this BIOS, just use stock because the micro code is already ready for the xeon.
