Default Re: Universal LGA775 VID mod question.

The microcode will be the same. Gigabyte does use a lookup table that defeats pinmods. But Dells have been overclocked this way for years. It's just that the extra Voltage wasn't there for the more interesting combinations.
Q6600 G0 from 2.4Ghz to 3.0GHz is a classic, and the E7500 from 2.93 to 3.67GHz is another.
The E7600 to 3.83GHz needs some extra Voltage.
Unlocking a Dell BIOS is easier said than done. Aside form adding some CPU support it hasn't happened yet.
