Asus Z690 Hero ME downgrade

Hi I wanted to ask for some advice. I want to enable non k overclocking on my z690 hero but can’t downgrade the ME version. Is it possible to force a downgrade without using a chip programmer?

Is it possible to keep non k overclocking with newer modded versions of the bios?

is there a clip on connector for the new type of bios chips? or alternatively is there something I can solder on top of the bios chip to make flashing easier, I don’t want to have to remove the chip each time to program it
