Hello!
I'm looking at an ASUS motherboard, P7H57D-V EVO, and it has something called "CPU Level Up." It states that you can "Upgrade your CPU at no additional cost with CPU Level UP! Simply pick the processor you wanted to OC to, and the motherboard will do the rest! See the new CPU speed and enjoy that performance instantly!" :)

Sounds to good to be true right?!? I was wondering if anybody has this motherboard and can tell me if "CPU Level Up" really works or you can just give me your opinion of it.

Here is the link in case your interested:

Thanks a bunch! :)

The link doesn't work.

The feature is a fancy name for overclocking. It is documented to feed more voltage through the processor and the components than is safe given half a chance.
