Perhaps the BIOS has decided

provide the function of voltage adjustment. Neither
ram frequency modding. The
CPu is the only allowable adjustment, and
with it not even voltage. I'm very
limited with this motherboard with
what I can phisically modd. It sucks! I know
that I still probably
didn't respond correctly, but I hope you can tell atleast
who is the
intended recipient. Is the information above telling or do you still
need my default results?
