Default Re: Linkboost??

Not sure about the evga board, but when I turn on Linkboost in BIOS it increased my 1.2v HT, NB, SB voltages as shown by the ASUS probe, and probably also auto-oc'ed the pci-e buses. It's supposed to allow your 8800 GPUs OC better.

I leave it off when OC'ing. Having it on seems to bork my OC attempts, even when just doing simple multiplier bumps vs bus speed adjustments.

When I disabled it, I immediately got better stability when OC'ing.
