Don't know if i will fine the time to post a score for the comp but looking for volt mods for this board theirs nothing that i could find that would go over 1.68 ahh there is one that says it would go to 1.85 but not happening- to get 1.85+ volts
remove cap..

then add 5 volts( still untested by me but should be golden)

oh and for chipset 2k vr or two 1k vr no need to start a 1.7v with a 1k vr

goal is to post back before the weekend on the volt mods- only going to have one day to bench for the comp:(

the controller is set to k-8 voltage mode- max volts is 1.55 so 1.6+ before OVP kicks in

there's 12v going to to VID5 so by removing that cap.. and adding 5 volts to VID5 the controller should be running in VRM9 mode now which allows up to 1.85 volts

Ran into a snag the capacitor I remove was for vdroop but that ant the snag, they tie in the 12v that sets the voltage mode to what powers the controller so looks like I need to cut the trace to the VID5 pin and then add 5v to it- if I could see the trace form the capacitor that I remove to the resistor next to it I could just cut that but doesn't matter how many pic's I take just can't see it - will up date on which path I take
