VCORE Voltage

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a GIGABYTE 8IPE1000 version 4 motherboard. I have the latest BIOS revision, F5. It's AWARD Bios 6.00PG. It only allows me to change VCORE by +5%, +7.5%, and +10%. Those are the only three options it allows me. It doesn't offer me the option to DECREASE voltage, and it doesn't offer me the option to increase voltage by .25 either.

Can anybody tell me how I can get additional options to change my VCORE? So I can decrease it below stock, and increase it in .25 increments? Thanks.

Same question for my divider. It only allows me three options: "1.33, 1.66, and 2.0" 2.0 gives me a 1:1 FSB:RAM ratio. Is there a way to get more options than this? So I can try a wider range of dividers instead of just those three?

Well it appears as if the options are limited in that board. (Vcore) theres no way to do this via the bios if its not in there, the only way to have an adjustable vcore outside the bios is via a Volt mod with a variable resistor. The problem is you will have to find a guide of your board being moddified, which chances are nobody has done it. If your lucky someone has, and in this case you will need the correct VR, a multi meter and know how to read the multi meter, then youll have to solder the VR on the board(which viods the warrenty if theres still one on it). Needless to say if your not willing to do this then you have 2 other choices, either ise what you have, or buy a new board that allows the adjustments you want IE ASUS P4C800/ P4P800 Se/Dlx and so on.

Is it possible that by reverting to older revisions of the BIOS via flash updates, could provide me with these additional options?

Um no, if its nopt in the newer version then its not in the older ones. Now Ive heard that there is an unlock key on giga boards but Im not sure which/what boards it actualy works on. I think you press F1 or something upon boot or while in the bios.
