    Default Will this pencil mod work for my board?

    Found a pencil mod for the EP35-DS3L, but wondering if it will work for my EP45-DS3L? Not sure how similar the boards are, and I don't feel like taking my case apart right now. Here's the link:


    If that one won't work, does anyone know of one for mine?

    No, a Pencil mod for any other board will not work for your board. Some same chipset pencil mods will work on several variants of boards though. Like if you had a P35-DS3R that mod above would work on it.

    P45 Can only be Hard Modded, Pencil will not work due to the resistance of the parts in question. Here would be the method you would need to use for a GA-P45 based board, posted by hicookie (Non UD3 Models only) >>>>

    The Fine Print:
    This mod is not suggested by Me or anyone here at TweakTown. I am simply providing you with the knowledge you asked a question about. Should you choose to modify your motherboard using this information Any damage you do to your board is by your own decisions, and your warranty would be voided of course.
