VDroop Question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Some reason, I'm getting really bad vdroop all of the sudden. 1.65v in the BIOS is 1.520v in CPU-Z. :***:

1.75v in the BIOS used to be 1.72 in CPU-Z, and 1.7v used to be 1.68v - and it used to "jump" up and down .1v no matter what. Now its rock stable, and it stays put, but I loose 1v!

Just wondering if CPU-Z is the problem, or I hit really bad VDroop for some reason. :***:

Mainly want to know so I know if it'd be "ok" to bump up to 1.7v, which would probably show 1.55v in CPU-Z, since 1.7v is a no-no on air - but it might really be only at 1.55v

Has your cpu temp dropped any ? If so your V probably have to..Just watch it for a couple of days before you bump it up just to make sure it doesn't bounce back up on it's own...

I had it at 1.475, which isn't abtainable. At 1.52 is reasonably higher - 2C on load higher, and 1C on idle, but no major increase or decrease. C&Q is off too.

Seemed to answer my own question though - the BIOS Monitor shows the same volts at the same settings too. 1.7v shows 1.584v in both the BIOS Hardware Monitor and CPU-Z....

Have you tried to read the vCore with a voltage meter? I would be careful....

See there you figured out how to do it after you thought about it for a while....EDIT: Maybe the NB work smoothed it out some...EDIT: I'm just kidding about the NB...
