Usually it drops from like 1.415v to 1.39v, vdroop. So if you at 1.3675 in the bios your not running that when you get into windows, so its something to check out.
You do have a point there. I have vcore set to 1.36v in bios and under load it fluctuates between 1.34v and 1.33v. I can probably raise the vcore a bit more and get some extra mhz. The thing is, that I don't want any more down time. As it is, I have been cheated out of 3 consecutive wu's now.
With the exception of the current 2665 that I'm working on, the four prior to this one have all been 2669. Out of those four, 3 have failed on me. The last one failed at 100%, then it aborted the job and deleted the work unit. The two before that one failed at 86% and 85%. Prior to those, I completed several 2669's with no problems.
Basically since it started occurring it has been like so;
2669 - 85% error
2669 - 86% error
2669 - 100% error
2669 - 100% completed
2665 - still working on
