For sure, I'm thinking about grabbing the ASRock or the ASUS but the red color scheme doesn't hit me and I'd really like to keep this board. Maybe I should grab the ASUS now and then if this problem evens out over the course of August then I'll buy a UD7+Bulldozer.

your money, your choice. I am leaning towards keeping the UD5 myself.

I still have a good 19 days for my decision. I really want to keep the UD5, but come on, almost .1V of droop is pretty bad.

Yes, but are the others performing as through as a test as I am on the Asus 990FX's?

Good point, I'll go ask the members of the ASUS CHVF club to do some vDroop tests with an 1100t at your voltage specified.

whats the big deal about vdroop? why not just set a higher voltage and account for the droop? its actually healthier for your CPU.

either way when i look at my board ill test it out, but ill test it with a real hardware reading, not software.

BTW 1 thing to consider these boards are tuned for BD not really thubans.

Vdroop can ruin an OC, setting the Vcore up higher to compensate causes them to work harder (hotter).

I call garbaldygook on the not tuned for Thubans, as the Octa FX's will have a 135watt TDP (thats 10 watts higher then the Thuban) at stock
