    You don't need this mod for dice. The boards were having problems at about -90~-100. They should work fine on dice.

    I'll see if I can find the time DoD (Day of Dice) is usually a race against the clock and I have a list of scores I need to crank out

    something with a PCI-E signal I read in hwbot forum. without the resistor it will be amplified.

    Thread necro-ish.... Are there any negative effects to shorting these points? Why did the companies choose to set the resistance the way they did?

    Will it be revised for all future boards for better sub-zero behaviour?

    You increase voltage within CPU - potentially dangerous

    Manufacturers didn't set the resistance, they just followed Intel guidelines.

    I was under the impression it was signalling, not power?
