yes. I have a single VX42 which is currently set to run at 166 to generate
less heat; the rest are VX40's.

(All of these machines have had their fan thermistor wire cut to force the
original fan to run at full speed.  This appears to be a workable stopgap
measure, which is good because I won't have time to replace all the fans
before my deployment deadline.)

hmm! I have indeed changed those settings to get low-end VGA resolution...
Maybe the list of jumper settings is slightly different for various firmware
versions? (ewww...)
