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

Matt

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.

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.

I just read that very same thing! LOL!

Sorry, but from what I have read, it looks like you're stuck.

You could always get the Asus Crosshair!

Not my area of expertise, but i'm sure you can create a batch file to run on startup that would automatically change the appropriate settings in CPUiD or whatever....You'll have to get someone else to explain how to do it though...sorry

physical volt mod. You might be able to find some guides online. You need to go out and buy the variable resistors, they are really cheap, and you will need a soldering iron and some soldering skills. And you should be well on your way, keep in mind your warranty goes out the door.
