Can I download something that allows me to raise the upper limit for CPU speed in my motherboard? Not talking overclocking, just something that allows me to put a 3.4GHz chip in a mobo originally spec'd to only go up to 3.2GHz (might have been 3.0).

I've got an Albatron Intel 865 PE/PE PRO. I can't get their website to come up, but a Google cache shows several versions of both Bios updates and driver updates. Unfortunately, the tech-ese is heavy enough that I can't tell if these updates will do what I need.
And is the fact that I can't understand the tech-ese a hint that I probably shouldn't be screwing with my motherboard at all, and should simply settle for playing Oblivion at 640x480? Or is changing the Bios/drivers no big deal?
