Calling out all Volt Modding Experts

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I own a P5N32E-SLI motherboard, like countles OCN members. This kicki butt MoBo is however know to have a relatively low FSB ceiling for Quads (possibly as low as 320!), and with my Q6600 G0 chip coming some time late August ($290) I am looking for a way to remove this limit for my OC efforts... The fact is that with a 72C tCase and using only 95W, the temperature limit should be high enough to allow us to go a bit higher if we can set it, maybe up to 3.4 on air!?! Otherwise we will be stuck with a hopefull 3.2 or perhaps even lower because of the 320 x 9.

EVGA's 680i boards are on the same boat since it seems this is a 680i related issue, and recently EVGA themselves said the following:
"It was found that the GTL Reference Voltage, derived from CPU VTT/FSB Voltage, on the 680i SLI Motherboard, needed a little boost for better FSB overclocks on Kentsfield Processors. About a 0.03v-0.05v boost should yield better FSB overclocks on a Kentsfield Processor. Current boards do not have this implementation, but newer boards should be tuned with a little more GTL Ref Voltage with Kentsfields."

So I ask... would there be a place on the P5N32-E SLI board to pencil/solder/what-not that would allow us to feed the extra voltage needed..?

...please forgive my noobness when it comes to modding if I made any mistakes in my statements.

I re-posted there, I will then CV results back over here... thanks MadMax... rep+,I bet I can get quite a bit of info about this over there, and then share it with the P5N32-E SLI guys back over here
