I thought there was more to it than simple vcore settings. (Although using
MOSFETs designed to supply 2.0v to supply 1.75 and greater current can cause
considerable shortening of life-span). I thought there were certain features
that the Coppermine has that have to be supported in BIOS.

However, I could be wrong, I've been wrong once before.
