DS3L vdroop out of control!!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
OK, After installing my E2180 into my DFI, the board won't post anymore. I am finally convinced there is something wrong with it and it is going to be RMA'd.

So, I hook up my DS3L and want to see what this CPU can do. I work my way up to 3500mhz and start othos. It failed within 5-6 minutes. I looked in BIOS and saw that I had the vcore at 1.500. I upped it to 1.525 and rebooted. I am stressing right now and, according to cpuz, the vcore is 1.456!!! Now, this board is known for vdroop, but I don't remember it being this bad.


Is vdroop mobo dependent only or can the CPU affect it too? I had to RMA this board and, since the thread marks from machine screws are still on the NB heatsink, I assume it is the same one. I don't think it drooped this much before.

The DS3R vdroop mod shown at Vr-zone is reported to work on the DS3L. You might want to check it out:

To answer your question, vdroop is motherboard dependent. That is why you can do the pencil mod to the board to eliminate it.

OK, thx. It is going OK now. I just want it to be stable at 3500 to get me by until the DFI RAM gets back.

The DS3R mod on that page does NOT work. In fact it increases vdroop. There is another mod somewhere in VR Forums that does work. I just tried it on my board. But things are a bit hotter now so I'm not sure if it's beneficial.

But seriously, the value you set in bios is what reads within windows or the bios hardware monitor and it doesn't budge much when loaded.

They say a pencil might work, but it was performed with a circuit writer pen or solder.

For zero vdrop and close to zero vdroop.

Has anyone else also tried this modification? I'm REALLY interested, but that comment about other components getting «a bit hotter» took all my happiness away.
