Want more Spark from your Sparkle?

Is your 5v rail a tad low? I found this article that outlines how to tweak you +5v (and +12V and +3.3V ...they are all controlled by the same pot here) line to get a good solid +5v when overclocked.



now comes the all too familiar standard disclaimer:

PERFORMING THIS MOD MAY RESULT IN ELECTROCUTION. IT MAY RESULT IN PERMANENT DAMAGE TO YOUR PC, INCLUDING THE MOTHERBOARD, PSU, CPU, MEMORY, VIDEO CARD, ETC. THIS MOD MAY TRIGGER PREMATURE BALDNESS, OR TEMPORARY BLINDNESS. IF IT IS SUCCESSFUL, (AND IT LOOKS LIKE IT IS!) IT MAY CAUSE USER TO CONTINUE TO MODIFY EVERY PIECE OR ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT HE/SHE CAN FIND. IF NOT SUCCESSFUL, TAKE 3 ASPIRIN AND GO TO BED.


I don't know if you feel better, but I do!

But seriously, this is dodgy stuff here but if done correctly can yield wonderful results. Not for the foolish or slippery fingered, ok? Nuff said.

FYI

The "other" pot is probably a "fine" adjustment pot. For dialing in the voltage right were ya need it.

It's actually for the -v rail if I'm not mistaken.
