I did it and it worked. Phew that is the critical part (or is it?). I can confirm that the voltage mod listed on the motherboard reviews page is accurate and works well. I soldered a 4.7K pentonomiter on the two points and can now adjust the voltage from 1.75 - ?.??. I curently have it running at 2.0 volts. I did however run into problems. My CPU will NOT boot as the 1450mhz setting that it was booting at. I plan to take the HSF off tomorrow and reseat it even though the temps are only a little over what they were before. Does anyone think that I should up the voltage over 2.00 volts to boot higher than 1360 that I am at now? When I am done experimenting with reseating and setting higher voltages I am going to get water cooling and see how that helps. I also think my cheapo video card is playing a role in this as well. I will post my results on my experiments tomorrow. Lets hope I can get it back up and beyond 1450mhz.
