Moved to Consumer Advocacy / Feedback since there are very serious claims of false advertisment.
I wouldn't say that at all. All mobo manufacturers advertise something along the lines of "adjustable FSB" and/or "voltage adjustable". IMHO, this has never referred to any particular amount of adjustment, nor whether it's adjustable up or down. And with respect to this poorly worded prose on the PCChips website, it talks about "flexible" voltage adjustment. It never says "manually adjustable" Vcore adjustment. For all we know, it may have some sort of automatic Vcore adjustment depending on the FSB or the version of the processor itself. And there's no way to tell without having the actual board and manual on hand to play with.
I'm certainly not any more savvy than the average geek, but I've always known that a vague advertising claim is just that, and that the actual amount and type of adjustment can, in no way
, be determined without going into the BIOS and actually playing around. And
, whatever adjustments are currently available in the BIOS are subject to change when a new BIOS is released. Every users manual that I've ever read makes some sort of a caveat about that, something like: "because BIOS code is the most often changed part on the motherboard, information contained in this manual my not be the same as bla, bla,bla...."
As an aside, that's one of my big issues with the "Undervoltable Motherboards, add to the List" thread. People are posting stuff in that thread which is nothing but a cut 'n paste from the users manual and is completely useless without actually being able to access the board's BIOS itself.
*EDIT* Please do not take this as any defense of PCChips/ECS products. IMHO, they are the lowest quality, most poorly designed motherboards in existance. I would not personally use one, even if I was paid to use it.
