Won't work with the 7NIF2 - the MB has no support for undervolting or
even multiplier settings - as I found out the hard way =)  I did
manage to up my multiplier with a "wire trick", but I don't think its
possible to undervolt this way (there are wire tricks that can control
voltage, but I'm not about to screw with voltage unless I know it
works).  I'd be interested to hear if I'm wrong, so please correct me
if you know otherwise.
