hi PK,

well i didnt really understand with abt tht voltage thing, it sayz...

"Einige Mainboards können nur mit AGP 4x oder 8x Grafikkarten betrieben werden die der AGP Spezifikation 2.0 oder 3.0 entsprechen und eine Betriebsspannung von 1.5 Volt (AGP 4x) bzw 0,8Volt (AGP 8x) unterstützen"

so 4x is 1.5volt, and 8x 0.8 volts, i got a P4S8X-X,and in da bios whn i saw "agp voltage" was set to "1.5" volts, tho my gfx card is a 8x Geforce FX series,so it means i'm giving my gfx card da 4x voltage? or is it normal tht its set to 1.5 volts?

Still, I'm searching for the voltage of Asus Radeon 9600 XT. I have Asus A7V8X-X ( I know, i know) and can't get any games run more than 5 minutes.

As you know, A7V8X-X only supports 1.5v AGP cards. Normal Radeon 9600 XT uses 1.5v as well. However, it says something like "this card uses more voltage...." in the readme file of my graphic card, so i think it uses a bit more.

I'm uncertain about these and probably going to pay some more cash to buy a new mobo asap.

As someone said earlier i guess, the a7v8x-x brotherhood of pain.
This cat scratches free.

Hey Dude I had a similar problem with my asus V9980 Ultra
I have one system with a 450 w PSUand one with a 500 w but with all my harddrives and cd rom burners and fans for cooling..............

The answer that worked for me was to plug my Video card into an extra AT/PSU thats if your card has the extra molex plug on it for the extra power.

Now its stable benchmarking on 3dmark2001se @ 13660 amd 5650 on 3dmark04

Before I added the extra power supply I was only getting about 5 minutes as well.

You could try plugging in you case fans and cd rom drives into the extra powersuppy to take the load off your system so thats there is more power for your video. I just grabbed a old one for a old p100 case.

Good luck

i always max that voltage out without thinking. feeds the northbridge for more stability when running 1:1 at high fsb. thats a given for me.

I've seen this "trick" mentioned before ,but my own experience with it is that it makes no difference at all.
I myself didn't even gain 1Mhz more in O'C potential.

So in my opinion it's better to leave it at default.
It's probably also much "healthier" for the poor mobo as well
