    Plz give me support

    i have motherboard ECS A780GM-A and wanna decrease the cpu voltage
    i tried to do this but i cannot do this because there is no option in bios to do this

    Use power management. The options depend on the Operating System and cpu you are using.
    In XP 2003 and Linux you can use AMD cpu drivers and cool and quite feature in bios. enable cool and quiet in bios and go to ----> AMD Support Search
    Download the software for your CPU and OS. Get the AMD processor Driver, AMD optimizer, and AMD Power Monitor. Again it depends on your cpu and OS.

    thanx but i will tell u why i asked this question

    i have 2 motherborard of (ecs 780gm-a V1.1)

    each bios of them is deferent !!

    one of them in its bios have a choice to decreas the cpu voltage

    and the other do not have this choice

    although they have been updated to the (((same))) version of bios from the site of this motherboard !!!


    the question
    this 2 motherboard has the same updated bios
    and has the same motherboard version

    but the bios is deference !!

    why ???

    why i am able to decreas the cpu voltage for one and do not able for the other one

    thank u very much

    Save current BIOS from the board that allows the change and flash to the one that does not. Or just update the BIOS on the board that does not allow it to the newer BIOS that the other board is using

    Both boards should have a cool and quiet option in bios. This must be enabled in bios to adjust voltage down. It will lower the cpu frequency as well for power efficiency. Oh sorry what your referring to the cpu decides if you can manually lower voltage in the bios. Are you sure they both have the same cpu?

    no the two motherboard have different cpu
    X3 720
    X2 240

    the motherboard with X3 720 i
    can manually decreas voltage in the bios

    but

    motherboard with X2 240 i
    can not manually decreas voltage in the bios

    again : the two motherboard updated with the same
    bios

    X2 Regor 240 AthlonII will not allow a voltage decrease in bios settings.
    X3 Heka 720 PhenomII Black Box Edition will allow a voltage decrease in bios
