no bios overclocking features

I have an Abit I-g31 motherboard and it has absolutely no overclocking features I was wondering if there is a way of editing or changing the bios so that it did have overclocking software. Is there?

What is your BIOS?

There should still be a way to OC, even if it is not obvious. Is there a way to chance CPU voltage, FSB, and base clock?

If not, you might want to consider NOT OCing with that motherboard. If it is such low quality as to have no OCing options, OCing on it might not go over too well.

No link.

I don't think that motherboard should be overclocking.
