I Have 2 Questions with Vdroop and Raid

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
1: what does vdroop do in general ?
2: what does Raid controller do?

because imma order a gigabyte P35 DS3L motherboard to replace my P5N E-SLI for my Q6600. I heard that the Vdroop on this board is low and dont have Raid sumthing

Please correct me on that. But, i kno this board is good for Oc my quad core and with ease u can oc it over 3.2ghz

See if I can put them in simple term

1. Vdrop is to describe a Voltage drop in the BIOS and the real voltage applied. Vdroop is to describe the difference/fluctuation from idle to load. The idea is to proven the voltage reached to max voltage and drop back to a reasonable level so it can lowers the overall impedance. If vdrop too much, it will lead to a unstable system. So, when we say vdrop, we have three vcores, one for bios, one for idle and one for load. Therefore, you may set 1.38 in bios, you may see 1.36 in idle then 1.34 in load under cpu-z.
2. RAID controllers is to improve reliability, performance, and flexibility of a storage subsystem. It manages all physical disk drives in your system and combines/presents them as logical units to OS.

RAID= Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks


It controls the ability to use multiple drives in different arrays for added performance, data security etc.
Here:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAID



vdroop is the difference between the vcore set in BIOS and the actual voltage to the CPU. The only problem is that software is not always accurate when reading voltages.

This is the case for coretemp :S or is that fairly accurate?

Thanks For the explaination. Im not sure im quite got all of the infos u said above but i think i got it over 80%. So, i have another question that if i buy the GIGABYTE P35 DS3L can i just leave anything the way IT IS and OC my Q6600 to at least 3.4ghz?

As far as I know, all. I don;t think it is off by a large amount, just that when reading voltages, the only 100% accurate way is with a multimeter. Obviously, not everyone is eager to probe their mobo's, so software is usually the best method. Always leave a little "wiggle room" so as not to chance an accidental overvoltage. Also, voltages fluccuate, so that has to be concidered as well.



As for the DS3L, I have one and love it. it is a great overclocker and has a nice, simple BIOS. It is stable and has worked great for me. If you want to get something with RAID, the DS3R is good as well. keep in mind, one of the downfalls of RAID is the fact that, if the mobo dies, you can't access the array unless you are using the same type of controller. (for example, my DFI uses an Intel ICH9R controller. If it dies, the only way I could acecss the drives is with another ICH9R controller)

If it is a G0, you should have no problem. Those boards are good overclockers. If you were trying for 4.0ghz under extreme cooling or something, then it may be worth a vmod. I ran my E2140 at 3.5 for months 24/7 and it was stable as a rock. Granted, quads are usually more demanding.

edit: whoops, how did I quote myself, lol
