Also, no one actually wants vDroop. It's just that the side effects of not having vDroop are worse. Look at this link for more info:

I don't know who this "Master" is, but he stole this content from a very old AnandTech article that was written back in the days when the 45nm Core2 Quads were the latest CPU to hit the market (I recognized those images immediately). I don't have the address to the article anymore, but I do remember that it was pages 5 and 6. Back in those days, there were too many motherboards available that had an LLC option in the BIOS even though the components on the boards themsleves were not good enough at protecting the CPU. However, there were definitely some boards that had no problem, such as Gigabytes EP45-UD3P.

With all of the recommendable 1155 motherboards, this is no longer a concern: when it comes to quality and when it comes to the board's ability to protect the CPU from these micro spikes, all of the recommendable 1155 boards either meet or exceed that old EP45-UD3P's ability. This is really no longer an issue or a concern.

I don't think "stole" is the right word since he cites the source for the figures in the article

But thank you for the info. I didn't realize that vDroop wasn't really needed any longer.

I'm not saying that vDroop is no longer needed, I'm saying that as long as we purchase a recommended 1155 motherboard, then we do not have to worry one bit about those spikes.

Anyway, I didn't read his article so I did not see that he cited the source. All I did was I scrolled down, I saw the images, and then I said "Hey, I know exactly where he got those images", and then I posted what I posted.
