Hey for those of you who want to get rid of the vdroop i have a solution. I know some of you don't wanna wait for an official fix, whatever your reason may be, but Intersil PWMs are easy to mod. I have made mods for the UD7, of course only the experienced OCers should even attempt it, but its its actually pretty simple, easier than most mods.
Before I begin let me explain how its works, we are replacing a resistor that is connected to pin4(droopcontrol for NB and Core). its a simple mod, you replace the resistor already in place, and replace it with exactly 100K ohm of resistance, either through a fixed resistor, or a pot as shown in the picture.
If you do this mod, you cannot go back to having droop.
Honestly, the vdroop isn't going to hurt your OC, just set a higher voltage so that your load voltage is what you had on previous boards, or what it needs to be to maintain stability. A bit higher voltage at idle isn't going to hurt anything nor produce much heat, load voltage is really all that matters, of course please do respect voltage limits.
I take ZERO(0)(NO) responsibility for what you guys do, if you can't handle a soldering iron don't attempt. If you have doubts just set the voltage higher instead of doing this.
I am told that this vdroop is part of AM3+ official design guides, so any type of LLC or this mod is not how the CPU wants to be powered, but heck we are OCers, so enjoy.
THE MOD SPOT FOR UD7 ARE NOT THE SAME as the UD5!!!! PLEASE DO NOT MIX UP!
PS: the UD5 has a very similar vdroop mod possible too, but I need an upclose picture of its PWM, just like the one above.Edited by Sin0822 - 7/14/11 at 12:21pm
