    Are you planning to do the mods yourself w1zzard? I'm very interested in what the max fsb of that board would be with the MCH vdrop and vMCH mods done :)

    I dont understand what he is point out. Unless he is gonna put resistors/transistors/capacitors on them open solder pads, I dont know what he is doing at all.

    Great! Clear pics and clear descriptions, as always. ;) Big thumbs up from me. Just started modding my AW9D Non-Max. Perhaps I'll see if I can find the GTLRef Mods for this board. Would sure be great for QuadCores. Already increased the max. possible termination current for vdimm/vtt by adding another pin-compatible bus termination regulator (APL5331) on top of (= parallel to) the one that is already in place (W83310D). This should significantly increase overclocked stability with 4 sticks of RAM at high voltages. Also replaced a bunch of caps to increase overall stability. Will finish the mods this week if everything works out fine.

    Thx again for the good description. Most likely I would've been able to find the mods on my own, but this way it saves a lot of time. :)

    I never have any vdroop, in fact mine overvolts some. Nice for those who wants to mod right out, but from personal experiences with my board, the only mod thats really worth doing is vFSB.
