I dont know if these 2 things are meant for that.I just looked at the PCB and thats the only potential thing I could find.
You've really got me wondering if the Xtreme cards are somehow voltage restricted.. but then again it does show you over 1.256v in software... hmmm..
Those areas you highlighted are curious looking.
Anyone know what they are for?

Me wants that!
The 3rd PCIe power wouldn't be needed if we could MOD the BIOS but @ stock this might actually come in handy unless they've gimped the overall power (would be nice to know the values used in the BIOS).
Excuse me doing homework now
