AsRock Z77-series VCore reading! - Page 27

post #261 of 429
Sin.

Can I make a suggestion for an indelible video with your camcorder?

Start with a small intro of what you measuring, "this board is a blah blah and I am measuring the vcore on the capacitors around the cpu to see if they will match up to the CPU-Z reading for vcore."

Then... Show with the camera, your monitor and have CPU-Z open flip to the board type to show that "X board is actually installed" then set up your Intel Burn Test for very high and X number of runs to generate a VCore in CPU-z and show it for 15 or 20 secs. Then Pan over and set the camera on the motherboard showing both the pins being measured and the Vcore as measured by the DMM in the same shot. (I would rather see measuring point and DMM in the same shot with a PAN over from CPU-Z rather than seeing CPU-Z and DMM in the same shot without seeing the measuring point.) I think if you did the video this way and we showed Asrock your reading with a matching vcore and one done with their own board they could not disagree with the issue being real.

The issue is with all Z77 Asrock boards. Stige even found it to be on his OC formula. So it would make sense not to just target one price range. I would personally like a UD3H and your Sniper.

We will tell Asrock we will disguise this video as "The Miami Heat does the Harlem Shake"

Funny random things:

I checked the capacitors around the CPU socket and pretty much found Memory Voltage, PLL Voltage and everything else to be pretty much spot on, only issue is the VCore itself.

So you definitely saw that the OC formula reported a different vcore from CPU-Z?

Interesting....well as Sin said at one point, ASRock could easily fix these issues by updating the code for the PWM controller. Hopefully they do at some point, otherwise if you're after the 5GHz mark you're probably better off with a board with a 100% digital VRM setup.

Didn't realize until now your sniper is LGA2011 doh.gif I guess if you have a z77 sniper that would be cool, if not a UD5H would be nice.

Friend with asus v-pro said he measured his a couple months back using those pins on the vrm and the reading was spot on with hwinfo64.

I was just wondering about PLL voltage..thanks

i cant read all these pages but from what i gather the problem can be fixed by asrock through bios update or am i naive? if this is a problem across their whole range and no uproar then i guarantee you will find these mishaps happen more often with other brands. i bought their mobo after it being recommended months ago as the best deal and all those reviews saying how awesome it was. of course i was later recently informed how crappy it actually is, but i didnt listen because one voice vs millions, i just couldnt believe at first.
