GA EP45 UD3P 1.4 Vcore Wall on P4

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know a way around this on this board?

Maybe a Modded Bios or something?

Could you elaborate a bit more as to what you are experiencing? That board should be capable of well over 1.4v vcore.

Are you trying to say that the board won't let you set the vcore over 1.4v?

Yes sorry about that.

I installed a P4 630 R0 revision. The Vcore in the bios will not go any further than 1.4v. It will not allow me to go any higher.

I've tried different bios versions, same results.

I speculate that what your experiencing is a trade off for compatibility with the P4 lineup. I wasn't even aware that the P45 chipset supported P4 processors, then again I never really looked into it. Have you perhaps tried a different processor?

I will be receiving other 775 processors but i really wanted to have some fun with the P4 Processor smile.gif. It is in the compatibility list though. I never thought i would run into this issue with Vcore. I'm sure the others will work just fine.

Quickly thumbing through some google search results, I found that you are not the only one to have experienced this issue. My guess is that in favor of supporting the P4 lineup, Gigabyte chose to gimp the voltage supply when using older processors, perhaps to prevent damage to the board.
