CPU Current :
140% = 100%.
150% = 110%
160% = 120%
170% = 130%
180% = 140%
130% = 90%
120% = 80%(VRM can now be manually adjusted)
110% = 70%
100% = 60%.
Hence why when that setting is changed from "AUTO", things don't work right. It's a noob-catcher.
Keep in mind, this is ASUS. They sell VGA cards with built-in mod points, then lock the BIOS so you can't use them effectively without flashing the BIOS (MATRIX 7970), or they sell cards that offer no voltage adjustment with mod points(DIRECT CUII 7970).
So, the hardware and options are there, if you know the tricks. If you don't, you're not likely to break anything. And if you do break something, it's clearly your own fault (in ASUS' eyes. Anyone that's gone through RMA understands).

THe only weird thing I did was leave the same voltage and flip the block up to 125 vs 100 as well as lower RAM speeds down to comply. I'm running RAM @ default to avoid issues (1333) when testing.
what is this 140 to 170 you speaketh of?
He's right. Even if it shuts down, you simply hold the button down until it stops the boot loop, or you hold down CMOS Clear on back panel. It can reboot 5 times in that 5 seconds, board doesn't shut down on boot loops for LN2 use, so to stop the loop you hold the power button ON THE BOARD ITSELF.
Power button on OC panel and front panel doesn't work the same, unfortunately.
At times I think bits of LN2 Mode stay on always.

Clear CMOS, boot into BIOS. value given in BIOS monitoring panel is just a bit higher than stock value, since board sets "EXTREME" loadline calibration by default. You can try adjusting loadline values to compensate.
And yeah, AUTO settings adjust VCCSA automatically. It's "AUTO", man!Edited by cadaveca - 2/19/14 at 2:26pm
