Neat trick to lower temps on a 920

    Seems like a viable alternative to getting a D0 or running stock.

    I'm not surprised that MFR's boards provide more volts than required...that makes sure everyone's chip will run right at Auto settings. So try tweaking down the volts if temps are a concern.

    Well, it's kinda obvious that lower volts = lower temps, but i'm impressed he got 3ghz with less than 1 volt.

    Your right though, it'd make a lot of sence if system builders lowered the volts on thier systems.
    Imagine a big company like Dell dropped the cpu voltage by 10% on every computer they made... World-wide hundreds of kilo-watts would be spared.
