But let’s get back to the Voltage Control section and its features. CPU VID Special Add allows raising the processor voltage up to 121.25%.

No one really knows what the CPU Drive Strength and DRAM Drive Strength parameters actually do: there is no mention of them in the user’s manual. As for the memory voltage, it can be adjusted between 1.7V and 3.04V with variable increment.

DFI very often uses variable voltage increment. And even more often you can come across identical repeated values. The picture above doesn’t demonstrate them, as I didn’t specifically set the intervals for that, but later in this review you will see a few repeated values. The same is true for the DRAM Voltage Control setting.

The chipset North Bridge voltage can be adjusted from 1.3V to 1.74V with variable increment:

The chipset South Bridge voltage – between 1.52V and 1.82V with variable increment:

By the way, here are some repeated values for you: 1.52V and 1.52V:

HyperTransport bus voltage can be changed between 1.22V and 1.57V:

CPU VTT Voltage – between 1.21V and 1.6V with variable increment:

The next group of setting is called GTL REF Voltage Control. The user’s manual says only one thing about them: leave this in its default setting. Short and clear :)
