Motherboard GPIO configuration

It seems only GPIO2 and GPIO5 is used from W83627EHF/EHG.

GPIO2 (0xE4)

No inversions, bit0 and bit1 inputs, rest configured as outputs.

GPIO2 bit7

memory voltage select

GPIO2 bit 6

memory voltage select

GPIO2 bit 5

1 = vcore offset + 100mV 0 = vcore offset + 200mV

GPIO2 bit 4

1 = 1.5V Chipset voltage 0 = 1.6V Chipset voltage

GPIO2 bit 3

0 = VID can be changed 1 = LockVID

GPIO2 bit 2

output always 1 ???

GPIO2 bit 1


GPIO2 bit 0


GPIO5 (0xE1)

bit5 and bit0 are outputs, rest is input. no inversions.

GPIO5 bit5

memory voltage select

GPIO5 bit0

memory voltage select

Memory voltage adjustment
