do you physically have to adjust jumper settings to short or open or can you assign settings in the bios without getting the pliers out?
For example the bios offers options for changing the multiplier. If i change this in the bios, does that do the same as adjusting the relevant jumpers?

mishbal .... usually those settings (i.e. multiplier) can be defined  EITHER by jumpers EITHER by BIOS settings. However IF you have the possibility to set from BIOS then this is ENOUGH, you don't have to concern about jumpers EVEN if they exist ( as I said, usually is either one or the other ...not both)
<< If i change this in the bios, does that do the same as adjusting the relevant jumpers? >> YES , it does.

Yeap kronostm is right. However, older mobo did not support changing jumper settings from BIOS but the newer mobo does. So, check your mobo before proceed... Cheers
