I've always had RAM vdrop.

My sig rig was born with an Intel E2180, the EVGA 680i SLI, and a kit of 2 x 1GB set of Mushkin "HP" memory (those blue heatspreaders). Back then, I had vDrop.

Then I upgraded to a 2 x 2Gb of mushkin's "XP" series (black heatspreaders, later consolidated into the Blackline series), and I still had vDrop. By this time, I had the E8400 in this motherboard.

Then I replaced the EVGA 680i SLI with the Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P and I still had vDrop.

Then I replaced the memory with a 2 x 2GB kit of G.SKILL's "Pi" series and I still had vDrop.

Unfortunately, I don't have any software installed right now that monitors the memory voltage for Sandy Bridge, but I think I saw RAM vdrop when I tried using ASUS Suite II.

So I say it's normal and not a problem.

On this board I can set the actual DRAM voltage to 2.32v (alot I know) and it will still only show 2.29v in HWMonitor.

Trial and error, bro. If you feel your older bios was giving better performance in one area or another, you can re-flash to that older BIOS. But for such a small occurrence, I would say just roll with it.

The important thing is that you monitor your voltage (actual) in Windows under load and at idle, and, that your system temperatures are all safe. Get your RAM voltage where it's supposed to be (in Windows) and make sure everything's stable.

If, in the end, you are not comfortable there, you can re-flash to the older BIOS.

Good luck.

You'll be okay, bro. It's nothing.

Do you see all of those little green dots next to TwoCables Rep? They're there for a reason; he's a straight shooter and tells it like it is from his experience. You can trust what he tells you.

It's no biggie.

Especially with a BETA BIOS, just keep an eye on things and keep track of any hiccups.

This is how we all learn.

Whoa. I just noticed that I have 11 of those green things. I guess that's 11 green dot thingies for the year 2011.

I like numbers.
