Thank you for asking this question I would like to start a new thread on how to mod this cpu but since im a newb I don't think I have permission. Basically remove voltage regulator solder where the center leg went to the innermost leg then it can be powered by the mobo regulators set them for 4 V. The 5 V+ fan leg and 5 V- leg must be removed or insulated from contact other leg must be left, then run 5 V from psu or fan plug on mobo to the fan, if you do not mod the fan it will run too slow at 4 V and cause it to run multiplier of 1. I did this over a year ago on a POD that had almost every pin on it bent so it was a good victim, after I straitened all the pins of course and made sure it worked haven't had any problems running at 100mhz even with all the latencies set at the lowest and it is crazy fast in the m919 at 40/100mhz. I am sorry this is a little off topic as it gets into modding
Could you please provide some photos or a diagram sketch. I tried to follow your sentance structure, but I became confussed, particularly "basically remove voltage regulator solder where the center leg went to the innermost leg". How does the POD's voltage regulator's centre pin go to the innermost leg"? I do not see these two pins soldered together.
Also, "The 5 V+ fan leg and 5 V- leg must be removed or insulated from contact other leg must be left". I do not follow this sentance at all.
Could you confirm that your POD is working with L1 write-back enabled and not write-through enabled? I found that my m919 version 3.4 boards were actually running with L1 in write-through mode. Try running chkcpu.exe and running the Quake_SW version 1.06 timedemo.
