first i want you to know king , that i really appreciated the time you spend advising me. others mostly ignore other opinions . and Achilles i know they are telling the truth lol
that link is pretty convincing BUT there is few comments i would like to make :

that sounded like a direct order to me from the manufacturer company .
2_ in that article you linked i see vcore on auto for 400 fsb is 1.36 i would
like to confirm that i tested 3.8 on auto and the vcore never went
that high at all , it was 1.28v
were dose it say 3.6????
and actually the ram voltage on cpuz hasnt changed at all .
1.8v at auto not 1.9
3_ quoted from the linked article :
_there is no conclusive evidence that PLL can cause long-term harm to a CPU,
Also, it is quite possible that the BIOS will lower this setting when a 45nm chip is detected.
_there have been countless debates about the effects of VTT on the long-term health of 45nm chips .
once again, it is quite possible that the BIOS would lower the VTT to a more reasonable auto setting when it detects a 45nm chip.
i want you to know that i am not arguing with you . what you are
dealing with here is a total newbie user . that got mixed up between
experts . am like a patient in the surgery room that can hear the doctors
having total different opinion about his case
. and what it hurts the most is when one of them says : well guy its your buddy and you can decide what we wanna do with it
haw can i be in a place were i can make up my mind here ? i just feel scared
either way i guess .
i know you are confident and you can keep your hardware safe .
please acknowledge that i am not handy at all . i only entered
bios a couple of times in my life. what is scaring me is not entering
the values you recommended but making mistakes unlocking the voltages
menus and apply wrong stuff .
maybe in my case i should stand my ground on auto .Edited by prescient - 1/8/11 at 1:54pm
