The ASUS A8R MVP is a great performing board with very high
HTT overclocking capability. However, it is somewhat limited by its voltage
options offered in its BIOS. For those who are looking for higher voltages on
this board, we have the answer for you…

Within means of the BIOS, the board gives up to 1.52v for the
CPU with the over-voltage option. Even for air-cooling, this CPU voltage
may be a little too low when you really want to maximize the overclocking potential.
So firstly, let us guide you through the voltage mod for the CPU core voltage.

This article presumes you have some basic knowledge on
voltage modifications. If you do not please read through this
guide.

Locate the voltage regulator ADP3186 just above the socket:

At the SMD capacitor shown above, solder on a 20K ohms Variable
Resistor. Set resistance to maximum resistance of 20K Ohms. Connect the other
leg of the VR to any grounded spot. You can monitor your vcore reading from
the BIOS Hardware monitor. Tune down resistance to increase voltage. Do it slowly
and carefully!
