    Check the websites for the motherboard and/or BIOS for your system.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    if your mobo/bios doesn't support extra voltage or different proc fan speeds, it's probably best just to consider an alternative to the heatsink/fan thing...

    besides, there's nothing more awesome than being able to tell people you're running a water-cooled machine

    okay, maybe there is... but I'd still like to be able to do that...
