I would like to give it a try at 13 but the menu shows me 12.5 as the higest value. I have the 1003 bios and I have an issue with the 1004 so I wont upgrade. Anything I missed somehow?

Thanks!

I think your CPU may be like mine (2600+) in that 12.5< is unlocked but to access 13+ you need to unlock it on the CPU itself.. I can access 13+ through BIOS but the CPU is not unlocked so at 13x180 for instance my CPU reads as like 950MHz.. There's a thread or two about this under the AMD CPU's forum..
