    Default Question about BIOS settings

    Hello i purchased the motherboard GA-X38-DS4 to replace my Asus P5K

    The only trouble im having is with voltages when i set voltages in the P5K it gave you the voltages you were setting like for example Northbridge - 1.2v 1.4v 1.55v etc

    However the GA-X38-DS4 only states

    +0.5
    +0.10
    etc

    The main issue being i dont actually know what the orginal voltage so if i add voltage to the northbridge i dont know the total value since the bios doesnt state this, so is there somewhere that states the stock voltages for the bios options?

    Thanks,

    You would need to look at the datasheet for X38, but I believe the default NB is 1.05V

    I can dig up the datasheet for you tomorrow if you can't find it.

    Here ya go buddy, it's higher than I thought! I was thinking about the P35 chipset, forgot the X38/X48 uses more

    In general, you may need +0.2-0.3 MCH for 4GB or above, and for FSB Voltage +0.1 for 450 or so and then maybe +0.2-0.3 for 500+
