Also it seem odd that people using the same mobo's and CPU combination are getting such different results.I'm not sure i believe Gigabyte on this,however maybe it will be fine with a Bulldozer,i'm defo gonna sut back and watch.Still miffed as to why no review site knew that it was implemented,and why Gigabyte have said they are trying to fix it,something does'nt sit right.
By the way is your UD3 affected by the problems at all?If so how bad?
ok man, i have a question, when did they say they are trying to fix it?
THey never told me that, and that is why i changed my previous post so much, b/c it just isn't something I know for sure.
I am sorry i don't work for GB, i but i told you why its implemented. I saw a post once, a picture of integrated vdroop for AM3+ GB boards, but I cannot find it anymore. Then i asked my GB contact and i was given that official response.
Also that guy is right, there is only 1 or 2 reasons to impliment vdroop, the first being to reduce transient overshoot during current steps. On Intel CPUs had 100Amp current steps from idle to load, and voltage had to change as well, but the transient overshoot could be a huge problem so they implemented a droop that would keep that max overshoot within safe limits.
The next reason is that when current is increased voltage needs to be decreased if they want their product to stay within TDP, right now their TDP is very high for bulldozer, and I think that without vdroop they will get too hot.
Review sites don't pick up on stuff b/c they do not test deep enough, they see the voltage is lower and call it a day at that, most reviewers really don't know much about voltage/circuitry/motherboards to even review a motherboard. It saddens me and that is why i review.
You know what ill do you guys even a bigger favor, I will show you guys oscilloscope shots before and after the mod, to see if ripple changes, and if noise changes, and if my OC changes.
