    I dont know if it was mentioned or not but I didnt see it, is that a SATA port right above the PCI-Ex1 slot? is that like for like esata devices or somethin?

    Edit: nevermind saw the other article on this motherboard, so ya it was what I thought a sata port for something like eSata, interesting spot for it.

    Anandtech has an article on it: http://www.anandtech.com/cpuchipsets/intel/showdoc.aspx?i=3184&p=5

    It puts up a good argument for not removing vdroop and vdrop totally. Also, when I said the voltage can sit at 3 levels it was a bit misleading, the voltage only hits the voffset level when you change from load to idle states. So apologies for that, I'd just finished an early shift at work after three hours sleep the night before so I had the dumb :/


    On an unrelated note, the following article might be of interest to owners of 7-series nforce boards. It explains in simple terms how CPU VTT (or FSB termination voltage) and GTL reference voltages work, and shows that you should never raise VTT higher than vcore as VTT uses vcore as a pull-up voltage to reduce overshoot, in principal much the same as vdrop and vdroop: http://www.edgeofstability.com/articles/dfi_p35/gtl/gtl1.html
