Under Voltage makes M/B stable

    My 8IP775G was not very stable expecially when running D3D games. CPU
    is Intel 530J running at 3.0G. Firstly I tried to increase the CPU
    voltage from 1.365V step by step but the results were the same. Then
    I decreased the voltage to 1.35V and suprisingly the system becomes
    very stable.
    I suspect that the default voltage setting of Gigabyte's M/B are not
    very accurate or they just increase cheat the voltage a bit hoping to
    have a more stable M/B.

    The above is for information and if you find your M/B not stable don't
    just inrease the voltage but try to decrease it.

    The higher the CPU voltage the faster the CPU will run, BUT it will
    also run hotter. I do not know about Intel's new line But my Northwood
    will throttle down when it gets too hot.

    I have my CPU undervolted by .1 v from the default of 1.52v. This
    dropped my temps 8 - 10 degrees C. I also have my ram running a bit hot
    (2.74 up from 2.64 default)

    GA-8KNXP rev 2, 3.0 gb P IV Northwood core, 1 gb OCZ PC3200EL

    been awhile, how all You folks doin'!
