CRAZY VDROOP? GIGABYTE P67A-UD7-B3 MOTHERBOARD TESTS!

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
HI guys!

Ive just got a P67A-UD7-B3 Motherboard back from RMA. My Previous Mobo was the B2 Revision UD7. Now ive been running it through some tests on my 2600k clocked to 4.6Ghz and the vdroop is very bad. Here are some test results ive got. Using Bios versions F5/F6 both with the same results.

1.360 LLC5 set in bios! jumps around at 1.296v 1.308v 1.320v 1.356v under full load.

1.360 LLC6 set in bios! jumps around at 1.320v 1.356v 1.368v 1.380v under full load.

1.360 LLC7 set in bios! jumps around at 1.356v 1.368v 1.380v 1.392v 1.404v under full load.

Now does this look normal for this Motherboard as my B2 revision wasnt this bad, also I have the UD4-B3 Motherboard which also is nowhere near as bad as this. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Does this look like there is actually a problem with this Motherboard?

Thanks! In advance.

I used LLC level 10 with a beta bios a few months ago (I think it was f4e) and I killed 2 chips with it on the UD7, haha.

The Motherboard was shipped with the F5 bios then I upgraded to the F6 from Gigabytes site which both gave me the same dips in voltage under load.

Does this seem normal to you as I thought a Mobo of this performance shouldnt bounce voltages around as much as this.My UD4 seems more stable and keeps my voltages more in check. This is my direct replacement for the B2 revision from Gigabyte.

Thanks! For your feedback btw.

Something sounds off about your board. If I tun off turbo and any energy saving options on my board, set voltage to 1.275v at LLC level 5, my voltage will read anywhere from 1.275 on idle to 1.278 on load. I get extremely low vdroop fluctuation on my board.

Edit: Anything above LLC 5 generally causes my boards voltage to increase higher but with still little fluctuation on load and idle if I have all turbo/power savings turned off.

If I have turbo turned on, I generally set my voltages to 1.225 and LLC to 6-7 to cause voltages to climb to about 1.275 at 4.2 Ghz

Also, I'm using F4 BIOS since anything else gave me some looping issues. The new F6 BIOS just kept resetting my overclock after each shut down, so I went back to F4.

I dont use any of the energy saving features or Turbo setting so as not to complicate things further while trying to get my head around this.Ive also noticed that if I have my keyboard connected to any of the bottom 4 USB ports on the Mobo I cant enter Bios by hitting the delete key.But if I connect to any of the top 2 USBs then I can. thinking.gif

Well, I can definitely say that my motherboard doesn't do this.

It sounds like you have a faulty motherboard at hands to be honest. I can't really think of anything else that would cause the types of issues you are describing, but you could always hit up Gigabyte's Euro forum. The moderators there are particularly helpful and are pretty fast to respond. I've also seem them help out with RMAs and what not but forwarding info to tech support.

A friend of mine allready made a post on there, but so far had no constructive responses.I also tried the F4 Bios which your using jivenjune which is just as bad as F6/F5. Does this sound like its actually the Motherboard which is the problem? Or is there somthing else I could try. Thanks for your feedback!

Sorry for the late reply. I want to say it's the motherboard, because all of the issues you seem to be describing are non-existent with my setup, and i'm using the same board.
