No OC options for a 2700k on an Asus P8Z77-V?

I've tried several BIOS versions and I simply don't have the "Turbo Ratio" field at all.
I had this CPU OC'd to 4.8GHz on another board so the multipliers are there. I just can't find out how to access them on this board.

Clear CMOS? If you've swapped CPUs, that can be important for proper detection.

Also, what the status of the BIOS versions and the Intel ME Fix?

Cleared CMOS. Still nothing.
I've tried 1805, 1908, 2003, and the latest 2104. The release 0801 and 1015 wouldn't install due to "out of date."

ME fix hasn't been installed AFAIK.

That's the "-V" model, or "Value". You sure that one has user-accessible OC functions? I seem to vaguely recall something about those Asus "-V" boards being BIOS-limited.

And, are you trying to set the turbo multis? what about trying to set the base multis?

Crap, I have a bent socket pin.

Now I don't know if I want to try to fix it or not. It would've been an upgrade over the i7 3770's I'm using as encoding machines with an OC, but it's not like that ~20% will kill me. It seems to run just fine with the bent pin, so I could sell it as-is. If I break the mobo I'm out $100.

E: Oh, joy, attempting to reinstall it killed all the PCI-E lanes.

E2: Fussing with the pin got video back. Still no OC options.

I only remember that the BIOS was a simplified version of the -V Pro boards. But bent pins will offer some strange results in the BIOS screens. Turbo or Turbo Ratio should be there -- possibly in two places across the various menus.

Fell into another P8V77-V, this time without bent pins. Does 5.1GHz @ 1.37V.

I have the exact same board and its far from a value offering. Its not the best OC board out there for 1155, but i did manage to push my 3570k to 5,15Ghz for benchmarking purposes.

Congrats on the OC, sounds like it was just the bent pins on the old board.
