Can I get my 8K5A2 to recognize PC3200?

One minor thing I overlooked in the specs is that the 8K5A2 apparently only supports up to PC2700 memory. Is there a bios upgrade that can get it to support PC3200? If not, which EPoX boards do you fellow EoXers recommend? Overall, I'm VERY happy with my EPoX board, but I'd like to squeeze all the memory bandwidth possible out of it.

One thing...Is it possible that since my PC3200 memory isn't getting used to its maximum bandwidth that it could then be able to hit higher FSB at aggressive memory timings? Right now I'm at 180FSB with 2-2-5-2 timings, and all the other memory settings in bios cranked to the fastest. We'll see what happens when I run Prime95 overnight. ;-)
