    Most likely it will cut/decrease voltage to the VRM's and mosfets when heat/load become too much.

    It means - to keep your mobo away from the trash bin if it the CPU decides to draw WAY too much power.
    Or something like that.
    Cheers!

    F11? is that a diagnostic code? I mean is there a Diagnostic LED display on the board itself?

    thx for the headsup, wish people would be a lil more specific on such stuff. N I forgot This is a board series that doesnt have the address space for UEFI.

    Exactly why I am using a mobo from this series - UEFI is a no-no for me ;]

    its simple actually, just a GUI mask for BIOS, a lil more options of tweaking a board are available thx to higher level of address space in the chip too
