post #2391 of 4644
just cleared cmos and problem persists, think i may just leave it at 3.0ghz, would prob get a new board if i wanted higher.

Hi guys and gals,

Im new to overclocking and i would just like to ask a quick question about vdrop, i hear you all going on about it all the time.

When my processor is idle its getting 1.39V but when i put a load on it the voltage goes down to 1.36V.... Is that the Vdrop or have i got a problem ???

Does it do that with you aswell ????

Thanks

Hey everyone, not sure if this is the correct place to post this question, as I'm not sure if it's a motherboard problem, but here it is anyway:

First of all I seem to have an FSB hole from around 375-410FSB, and anything after about 425FSB will not boot even on 8x multi. I typically run at 3ghz (333x9), no problems at all. Over the past few days I've wanting to see if I could get a better OC, so the only real option for me is to go up slightly to 3.2/3.3 which I'm not too interested in, so I've been trying at 3.7, and 3.8.

I set the voltage in the bios for 3.7/3.8 to anywhere from 1.48 to 1.52. The temps seem to be ok, using Everest to read my temps, the cores are mid 30s to low 40s and cpu is low 30s. At stress, the cores go up to upper 50's.

The problem I am having, is that after about 30 seconds of stress testing (Prime), something kicks in and drops the multi down to 6. I have C1E, EIST, and TM2 all disabled in the bios. If stop stressing the chip then about a minute or two later it will return to 9x Multi.

An interesting thing to note: If I have TM2 enabled, then with CPUZ it will show the multiplier dropping. If TM2 is DISABLED, then it will NOT show the reduced multiplier and clock speed, however I have tested my computer with SuperPi, and can confirm that it does indeed still drop the multi, it simply doesn't show up in CPUZ. When I first boot up with 3.7/3.8 and run SuperPi I get about 13sec or 14sec 1M test. If I then proceed to prime for a minute, turn off prime go back to SuperPi, it will then be anywhere from 19sec to 22sec 1M test indicating that my CPU is indeed being limited.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

[other bios settings in case people may ask: 5-5-5-15 timings, G.Skill 800 Ram at 2.0V, PCI Freq 100, all other voltages I have left default, although I have tested them at .1 up to .3 seemingly with the same effect I am having now.
Hey Bro, I've been fighting a slightly different issue but I can attest to this board supporting a much higher FSB than you are running.

My bet is that we are finding limits that are just past the limits of the GSkill 800ddr. I think these CPUs are capable of much more than what you or I are throwing at them and I bet you can at least get 3.4 or 3.6 all day if your chips are even close to on par with what everyone else has. I got 36+hrs prime95 error free with 460FSB with +.1 on FSB and MCH just for stability, doesn't appear I actually needed to do that but 460 is WAY higher than default 333FSB for my case)

I'd like to see a bios for this board that allowed a memory divider BELOW 1:1. I like the memory fine (mine are NQ model, also 5-5-5-15 3T, but I'm running it at 4-4-4-12 2T) but I don't think they'll run much over 900 w/o putting a lot of V (over 2.1) to them. (I was good at 920 but at 950, 1080 and 1104 I consistently got errors in memtest86 1.7; I am trying to keep this rig cool and quiet so I won't go as high with the V as some of the guys here with high powered cooling.)

Regardless of timings I found I could not get more than 9 passes without error until I kicked voltage up to 2.1, then errors went away. In my search to eek some more out of this memory (so I could up the FSB, my only way to get CPU over 3GHz due to locked 7X multi on cheap cpu) I emailed the GSkill USA rep and he responded within a day (nice!) and while he really said nada about the sub-timings HE DID SAY 2.1V IS OKAY on these chips. I bet just going to 2.1V on the DDR will help you. my 2 cents

now if I could just get settings to stay in bios after I shut it down for the night...

Thats normal its just vdrop due to the CPU being under load.

vdroop is caused the board and its pretty bad my cpu in bios is 1.4875 and in cpuz under load its 1.424. vdrop is a little different and that is normal because it is caused by the cpu

I could not find it in this thread with a little searching but it's been said before.

Vdrop is the voltage difference you get from BIOS to Windows Idle
Vdroop is the voltage difference you get from idle to load

Sounds like you are experiencing vdroop.

Hi,

Ive overclock my cpu upto 3.4GHz, it was at 3.2GHz I had to up to voltage quite a bit to get stable, at 3.2GHz I was running stock voltage but now for 3.4GHz im at 1.39V after vdrop.

Question is do these temps look ok for my max load or would I be better off stickng with 3.2GHz and cooler temps ? I mostly game so would the extra 200MHz be worth it ?



Thanks

My Q6600 G0 was the same as yours. Stock voltage to 3.2 then significant voltage increase to get to 3.4 and 3.6. I thought it wasn't worth the extra heat so I kept it at 3.2 since I didn't think it was worth the extra 200-400mhz. Idles between 28 and 30 and loads out to 46-49 (23 ambient). Nice safe temps to run 24/7 with.

Having temp problems. My Q6600 idles between 40-43 at stock speed and voltage. I have one 120mm intake fan on the front of the case (i replaced the stock fan), a stock 120mm fan on the back blowing out, zalman 9500 which i just remounted with AS5 last weekend, and a 80mm fan i rigged up on one of the side vents blowing out of the case.

Not sure what else to do, I replaced fans, rigged up another fan, and remounted the cpu cooler. Just cannot seem to get the temps down at all. Remounting the HSF with AS5 did nothing for my idle temp but reduced my load temps to 55 from 57-58. Seems there should be no reason for a Q6600 to run this hot at stock settings.
