Detailed description:

Hi , I just upgraded my ram to a 16 GB DDR4 3200Hz and noticed that my bios(version 308) default configuration doesn't allow any overclocking to higher speeds than the default 2400Hz . I understand the risks i'm taking and take full responsability but I want to know if such overclocking to get full usage of my ram speed is possible on my Asus Vivobook .

Such a configuration option did not exist in the Bios (used F2 to enter it) and only gave me information about the memory storage .Guides online recommend to upgrade Bios version to get access to XMP or DOCP and allow the overclocked state but when using the "WinFlash" tool I found on Asus's page

under Bios utilities 2016/09/02 says that my Bios is up to date and in fact for my model the latest[according to WinFlash] is version 304 made on 6/6/2019 whereas i'm using 308 made on 1/8/2020 so it can't upgrade my bios seeing that I have the newer version .

I have only tried to update Bios in Windows and go nothing . what's the next step while I explore the Ez Flash solution ?

Or if we can skip all of this how may i use my own Bios version 308 to overclock ?
