I didn't know about GTL that tool is amazing. Could a saved me like 10 BIOS restarts the other day trying to find low undervolt biggrin.gif
Yea GTl is awesome smile.gif

And another question, has anyone discovered the best "hardware monitor" for keeping track of voltages and temps while under load stress testing on these boards?
Yea they are just suggestions, i think intel suggests 0.8v delta, but I find that higher VIN can help sometimes, but also lower can help as well. Lower delta=lower temps, higher could be more stability if you can handle the temp increase.

haha thanks for subscribing smile.gif

Can you replace pic for EasyTune and System Information Viewer (at the bottom)....it's to small to see.
They are thumbnails, but OCN imports all the pics and replaces them on its own server. Ill fix it up.

I think it has the same maximum as before? 3v? and same max under normal BIOS of 2.8v? Or do you mean by auto? Because its still 1.8v by auto.
