Does anyone know how to modify CPU core voltage on this board without modifying the CPU? I have an AMD 1700xp (unlocked), running at 1728MHz (12x 144FSB), I would like to try running it higher but I am restricted to 1.52V with this board. I am running BIOS ver. 1005.003. Any help would be appreciated.

I've had that board for awile now and have it stable at 149/37 but can't change the voltages of anthing (CPU, MEM, AGP). So my 1800+(locked) is at 1713MHz. Can't even lock the PCI bus :( . Also where did you get the latest bios (1005.3). I'm using 1004, is 1005.3 a final ver?

If you're using XP be sure to install SiSes ide mini port driver ver.2.02. This driver gave me around a 30% increase in my hdd scores and is definetly noticeable.

I've searched on google for answers to the volt mod but nobody seems to be trying to OCing this board.

What else is in your system? Would be very enlightening to trade some benchmark scores (PCMark 2k2, 3DMark 2k1se, SiSoft Sandra 2003 Pro, Wintune).

Here's what I got

I got the 1005.003 bios of the asus site. Just go to the A7S333 BIOS downloads and chose "BETA". I am still looking for some sort of voltage mod without having to tracing the CPU. I will post back if I find anything.
