gigavcore3 GIGABYTE GA G1975X Voltage Mod Guide

The GIGABYTE GA-G1975X displays good overclocking potential but is greatly limited
by CPU core voltage issues. The CPU voltage drops a lot under load, and this
greatly impacts the overclocking on this board. Fear not though, we have tried
to perfect this board with a simple core voltage modification.

As you can read in our
review
of this i975 chipset board, we pointed out the good and bad of this
board. Now we try to rectify the bad, to make this board closer to perfection.
All you need is some simple soldering skills. If you are new to voltage modifications,
why not read VR-Zone’s Voltage Mod
Guide
?

Locate the ISL6556 voltage regulator chip located right next
to the CPU socket, as seen above. Next, solder a 500K ohms variable resistor
to the side of the resistor shown above. Set at maximum resistance of 500K ohms,
and connect other end of VR to any grounded spot. Lower resistance to increase
voltage. As there is no hardware monitoring for CPU core voltage, I used CPUZ
v 1.32
to monitor vcore as I slowly fine tune it real time in windows. Tune
it very carefully and slowly.
