i was looking at the cpu database and a bunch of people had higher voltages than 1.85 on tbirds, is there a way i can do this on my gigabyte ga 7dx, its an 800 and i can get it to work at 8X133 but it crashes and isn't stable at all, i only need a little more voltage
The way they do this is through a voltage mod. As far as I have seen, this mod has been done on the KT7 series, the A7V series, the MSI K7T Pro series, and the Epox 8KTA3. Go to google.com and do a search for "socket A voltage mod" and it should (hopefully) bring up any applicable results that are out there. Note: it takes some advanced soldering and stuff, I wouldn't try it unless you already have soldering experience.
