VDroop annyoing

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
so i have just noticed that i am getting some VDroop my VCore is set to 1.28 and drops to as low as 1.26 anything i can do to stop it i have tried all of the LLC options Extreme gives me small voltage spikes

VDroop is a feature, not a bug. It protects your CPU from voltage leaps (typically ~.05v) when chip goes from load to idle, which can overshoot set vcore. It's your friend.

thank you also my CPU does not appear to underclock itself anymore lol CPUID always says 4.4Ghz it use to switch between 1.6 and 4.4

It sounds like the energy saving and/or thermal protection settings in your BIOS have been disabled. Disabling these prevents your CPU from underclocking when it's idling, or overheating. Shouldn't be an issue, unless it gets too hot (or you're trying to save energy). You may want to go into BIOS to confirm this.

ive reset bios to default just before and setup my VCore it only under clocks itself if i set VCore to auto

Enable C1E, EIST C3 and C6 report under cpu configuration. If you get IDLE or random bsods change C3 and C6 report to auto and that should sort it out.

Hope that helps thumb.gif

Er wait what no longer fluctuates - vcore or cpu clock? If you've got the chip overclocked, you probably don't want to set vcore to Auto - you want to set it to the minimum vcore you require to pass stress tests (i.e. 20-40 passes of IntelBurnTest, 6-12 hours of Prime95 Blend). Your vcore shouldn't fluctuate too much in CPUID, maybe up or down a notch or two while surfing internet.

Gotta go to bed now, I'll check back tomorrow.

Vcore fluctuating is normal, if you also want your vcore to go down along with your multi, then you need to use the OFFSET voltage method and have the power saving features turned on.
