Your other thread mentioned this board was out of an HP. I suspect this is why it's locked, and I would speculate that it would be done in the bios, since it's easier than doing a hardware mod. Years ago with the old style rectangular bios chips I hot-flashed an HP board to the board manufacturer's bios. Doubt I'd dare trying that again these days.
I guess I would have to understand more about how voltage is applied or selected...There HAS to be a way...I know in the old days if you couldn't get the voltage you wanted, you could just add or change a resistor on the mobo and therefore manipulate what voltage was actually sent to the cpu. Is there commonly a voltage selector circuit on motherboards??
I've also been looking for what pins voltage and ground are applied...I mean if it comes to that, there should be some way I could supply about 1.6v with enough current to support the cpu. Found some pdf data sheets but cannot view them from this location..arg. Will just have to wait.
