Need Help With GIGABYTE X79 UP4 F4 BIOS Please? (Vdroop)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I seem to have very bad Vdroop with the F4 BIOS. If I set a Vcore of 1.36v with a LLC of Extreme, I get 1.32Vcore under full load.
With the old BIOS, I would have gotten 1.36v with the same settings.
When I was setting the LLC to Extreme to account for Vdroop, I noticed a little message pop up, which says I should use an option called CPU VRIN (Level 1) to make the CPU run at it's intended voltage as full load. However, I can't find this option in the BIOS.

Please help.
Thank you very much.

i think it might be due to some adjustments made recently, they will be fixed.

Thank you for the reply.
I had GIGABYTE test and they say no issue is present. However, I'm still certain there is, seen as previous BIOS versions don't suffer from this.

Offtopic?:
Yeh, mate have same issue here among other idioticy of gigabyte like losing bootable devices, entire order lists not to even mention F12 prompt doesn't even show all devices and instead it has only singular devices shown at bios to be first bootable device. Sended mail to gigabyte yesterday since there's like stack of bugs on their board(YET AGAIN) and this is 4th board I've bought from them saying 'Gigabyte' which fails clean off with updated BIOS and second revision of board. My best suggestion is to buy ASUS or MSI any chance you have for not deal with Gigabyte badly design boards and yes I am saying this after owning an X58, Z68, Z77, X79 Gibabyte boards every single board has failed with final bios they've done, so badly I cannot say anything else than Gigabyte is a trash company now days building crap against others at high price saying lying about their product quality which is none existent compared to others. Hell, I had the most expensive Gigabyte X58 against ASUS lowest costing board (same with Z68) and each case for example I5-2500K case I switched same CPU and RAM betwen Gigabyte board was barely able to jump 4,7Ghz while ASUS board clicked is right off the box to 5Ghz even more stable than Gigabyte 4,7Ghz which was hilarious.


vDroop:
yeah, as for this one seems lower the voltage less the vDroop(dunno why you are seeing so high at that low voltage since I see it over 1,41x V jumping even 0,16v below what it should be at Extreme) on this board also funny part is that, if you set the LLC to Medium or High(not Turbo or Extreme) seems vDroop is actually less with those than on the 2 last ones, but it's still weak as when ever you use those and hit LinX up those will allow the 1 voltage jump too low(board stability simply being bad) and it'll either error out or crash, however, on regular usage where you don't push AVX to limits those 2 will keep system more stable than the extreme.

I can't understand why Extreme even gives up 0,08v none of ASUS highest LLC's allows even that at highest levels and at level 3(high) it seems on ASUS X79 board board gives pretty ok -0,04v vDroop with same core as testing here with Gigabyte X79 where next level 4 of ASUS only gives up -0,02v where on Gigabyte X79 board level 5(Extreme) seems to let processor slide to -0,04v and level 4(Turbo) gives up -0,08v.
