I just couldn't believe it. I had to read these posts twice. Someone has posted ( I think it was over in the Die-Hard Modder's forum) about soldering in a rheostat to the P4C800-E Deluxe's power circuit in order to combat "Voltage Droop". ??? I don't know what to make of this. Not to start a flame war, but...um....I haven't noticed anything of the sort on my system. And besides, a Potentiometer adds nothing to a system, but allows you to dial down current. Plus, the boards' warranties would be done for with any of this sort of tampering. Not to mention the fact that once you've got homemade pigtails running hither and yon across it, would tend to make it more difficult to RMA a faulty board! You would certainly be able to RMA a MOBO with a faulty power circuit that caused your PC to fail, reboot, ect., though, so why waste $177 perfectly good dollars? I guess that is my main question. Anyone got any views on this phenomenon?
