    maybe not on the DS3R, i've never closely looked, but yu can tell that's a DSxP variant, because it has the 16x slot right above the bottom of the board (you and your DS4P LSD!!! grrr) Actually i just looked and the DS3R does not have them.

    BTW, how does that new board OC LSD??

    Ahh, maybe only DS4 versions and up then, Sorry I thought it was on all of them. I have EP45-DS4P

    Ya, no switches on the DS3's It looks like, only DS4 and above

    It is nice man! Got me some great New ram out for delivery as well so I will soon take it further.

    Was testing out 2000/500 FSB the other night, and I was in at 4.3 stable yesterday. Im looking to get 4.5 stable. Then I will be writing up a review for it

    The probable reason that it takes longer than just a few seconds is that you are Not just shorting across a Electrolytic Capacitor (as that can cause damage) but Via a "bleed" resistor.

    If I've been about to work on a switchmode PSU in the past, i would sit its PCB on a high resistance mat (often used for ESD work) that would slowly discharge the electrolytic capacitors without damaging them.

    Often you don't need to actually completely discharge the circuit, but you do need to reduce the residual voltage below an operational level. This in effect is also noticeable when a coin cell (say CR2032) is not completely exhausted, but neither allows the cicuitry to retain the user data.
