I didn't read the article about the mod, but if it involves soldering, the worst case is that you fry your mobo.

is there any other way to pump more volts into the vdimm w/ out a soldering mod??? maybe a hacked bios?

[sorry im new to this advanced stuff]

there's a less professional way. you take a pencil and draw around one of the resistors, tricking it into thinking it needs to supply more voltage... the site i listed. there's directions there for that as well.

youll also have to do a vdimm mod if you want to be running a high FSB in sync w/ the RAM if your RAM isnt fast enough : (

i need a soldering for dummies book ;)
