How do people know what kind of pentomiter to get for their mobo? I would like how people figure this out so when new mobos come out i can do the calculations and make my own volt mod instead of waiting for someone to publish the instructions on how to.

potentmeters are adjustable if you get a 100k pot it will be adjustable from 0-100k just start with the highest resistense. if you want more resistense add resistor inline with pot.
I have two board v modded one with a 100k pot and the other with 2 33k resistors inline giving me 66k. it's ok to have too much resistance but if you don't have enough that will overvolt chip. make sure your ground is good and tight.
