Not to sure about the Voltage problem, but there is a Dual Core Optimizer (It wouldn't make changing the voltage any more or less available, just increases performance in Windows)...heres a link

http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/..._13118,00.html

The top one is the optimizer, and there are other little apps/enhancements on that page, enjoy

You could try the latest beta BIOS available from the Asus site. It may have more voltage options.

I checked out the manual, and it really doesn't offer much in voltage options. looks like the highest it goes is 1.95V, which is only .05 higher than your stock setting.

actually the highest itll go is 1.30v in the bios and, about getting the latest bios, is that hard to do and do I risk loosing any data or messing anything up?

Oh wait, I was looking at the DDR2 voltage. Sorry.

The CPU voltage options are determined by the CPU model that is installed. Apparently the X2 3800+ is limited to either 1.30V or 1.35V.

that cant be though, cause I know of other people using this same CPU and can raise the vcore more, and also I found I program that allows me to raise the Vcore (CPUiD) but i have to raise it everytime i boot into windows.

The FSB can be increased to an optimistic 400MHz but, as there's no option to increase the vcore,
