Vmods

MSI MS-7100 K8N Diamond/Platinum Vcore mod

The area is located a little bit above the socket, solder a 20K variable resistor between the spot on C655 resistor and ground (spot on C601 is just ground) like shown on the following pictures.
Max voltage for winchesters is 1,7v and for newcastles/clawhammers is 1,8v, more voltage trigger the ovp protection and the board will shut down.
