Voltage change in bios has no effect

Would EMI/E (and the fluctuations of it) have some affect from areas other than the
diode itself, or the change in dissipation from areas surrounding the diode? Of course,
to some degree that ought to be the case and with changes internally to the
electrical switching and varying loads in the core. I also wonder how quickly the
diode's transition/dissipation would be?
I would think that pressure which would effect the diode would also effect the core, in
general, as well. I could be incorrect on that though.
Once again, there's the question of how the readings are established and how accurate
they would be. I'm hardly an expert regarding that question. Also, with less activity
the diode, and other areas of the core, dissipate rather rapidly(?), hence, the change

I'm going to try to re-flash the BIOS, and see if that helps.
Does anyone know how to clear the CMOS-Reloaded settings?
EDIT: I tried Hellfire's 3EG-Rev3 and that was the same way, I'm now trying Shinobi's Exocet 6-19.
Here's teh rest of the specs BTW.
Athlon XP 1800+ T-Bred
2x 256MB CH-6
Antec 400w PSU (DMM Used to measure rails - all readings fine)
ATi Radeon 9700 Pro /Arctic Cooling VGA Silencer
80GB Hitachi DeskStar IDE
48x Lite-On CDRW
SB Live 2.1 (I'm going to try taking this out for testing purposes.)
EDIT2: With shinobi's BIOS it's the same. I noticed that when applying voltage settings it takes much longer to POST then before (monitor goes into standby for a sec.)
The previous owner never had any problems according to him

EDIT: I honestly don't think a board can work without an SMBUS.
Plus, it works.
Click thumb to enlarge. It has it's own IRQ, etc.
CPU-Z read's the SMBUS, it's not broken! I have a deep feeling it's the CMOS Reloaded. Both our boards were bought used. That means that the person before us' CMOS Reloaded config's were on there, and cannot be cleared without the proper tool (which is not given out to the public.)
So, that leads me to my conclusion that the SMBus is NOT to blame, but CMOS Reloaded.
EDIT2: The SMBus also reports all temps, readings, etc. If this were broken NONE of that would work. Not voltage readings, fan readings, etc.
Pic to prove:
This further supports my conclusion.

EDIT: Swapped out cpu for 2000+ Pally and RAM for 1x 512MB Centon, same problems persist.
