We reviewed the recently launched ASUS A8R32 MVP
based on the new RD580 chipset just recently. It is a great platform to overclock
on, but for extreme overclocking conditions, some simple hardware modifications
may help you break that personal-best record of yours…

First of all, please ntoe that all these hard modifications
to your hardware will void the warranty for them immediately so do them at your
won risk and with this knowledge!

Now for those relatively new to hard modifications, you are
welcome to check out VR-Zone’s mod guide.

Let’s take a look at the CPU Voltage modification. As seen
in our review, the maximum voltage
it allows is 1.55v. To increase it further you will need to hard mod the board.

Simply solder a 100K ohms variable resistor to the spot marked
above. Set at maximum resistance of 100K ohms. Lower resistance to increase
voltage. This can be viewed from your hardware monitor in your BIOS.

For the Memory voltage modification, look at the top right
hand corner of the board. Flip it behind and you will see this:

Now, from the pin of the capacitor, you can solder on a wire
with a molex or pin connector of choice. Do the same for the ATX +3.3v pin as
shown above. Now you have 2 wires soldered to the 2 points, one each right?
And you have connectors on so you can hook up the connectors to connect these
2 points. This will feed your memory with your +3.3v rail of your power supply.
You will need to adjust your +3.3v rail of your power supply to feed the memory
with higher than 3.3v. If you adjust your +3.3v rail to 3.6v, then your memory
voltage will also be 3.6v. This is where you can measure the Memory voltage
with a multimeter:

Measure at the MOSFET leg shown above.

I hope this has solved some of the voltage limits you face on
this board. Share your overclocking results with this board in our
forums!
