vdroop mod is something homemade. Google 780i Vdroop and click any of the first few links.. http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...d.php?t=170055 all you do is make a graphite line on a resistor and you're done


What are the numbers?

I totally mis-read what you wrote about a vroop mod. My board does have one but the only one available is a hard mod and I can't solder very well. I have practiced, but i'm not very consistant. Also, with the dual core vdroop isn't to bad. From bios to load in windows the difference is only like .03v. With the quad core at high clocks the diffence was like .1v.

Back to my problems. I think that I tested everything now. I tried one stick of ram in different dimms. Then I tried different ram that I had as spares. I also tried with no ram, nothing made a difference. I even tried to use the Q6600 and that didn't help either.

The codes on the motherboard change very quickly. Some of them are, from start to finish:

C1, C3
25
2A, 2B, 2C
49
50
75
7F

EDIT

Well, I feel like a retard now. After just about giving up on my board I managed to get it to work. I even went to fry's set out to buy an UD3P, but they only had open box going for $129. I wasn't going to pay new price for a used motherboard. When I got home I attempted what I thought was the last thing that I can test. I swapped out my gtx260 with a 9600gso and still nothing. While it was still turned on I decided to push some buttons on my monitor and low and behold I see writing.

It was stuck telling me to push F1 to continue and something else. Might not have even been F1, but it gave me the option of to buttons. After doing that it went right into windows. The I had to go back and put everything back together since I had random ram installed, the Q6600, and a 9600gso.

I'm not going to try 4.3ghz anymore, but a few mhz less should be fine.

Mike. Glad to hear you got that working again. Don't worry. You are not the first person that forgot to turn on his monitor after a motherboard problem. It's only natural to turn the darn thing off when you are fixing the innards of your rig. Once; I replaced the video card 3 times before I realized....."doh! it'd help if I turned the monitor on! "

I'm happy too, I was getting really mad at my rig. The strange thing was that I never powered off my monitor. It turns on when I turn on my computer, but for some reason it wasn't getting triggered. I pushed the input select button and then it showed an image. It's not like it was on the wrong input because there is only one video card connected and the monitor will default to which ever input that it detects.

On the bright side, it's doing the good wu's at sub 7 minutes now

So I spontaneously bought a UD3P even though my board is doing well. I have some hope that I might be able to get better clocks out of it. If not, I don't mind too much. I wanted to buy a cheap board around $50 and a cheap cpu to build my brother a rig. I might just give him my IP35 pro and the E5200 I bought for $52.99 with the UD3P. I also can say, "screw my brother," make the UD3P a dedicated folder with the E8400 and put my Q6600 back in my rig. That will leave me with a spare E5200, but oh well.

Decisions, all tough choices. I'm going to need some ram and a new HSF for this as well.

Screw the brother. Folding is more important than your brothers pron watching

I don't know what I'm going to do yet, but I don't think that the E8400 is ever going to see the UD3P. I have something coming to replace it soon and the E8400 is up for sale.

However, the folding things is really getting to me. I keep getting errors and incomplete wu's. I should have finished one this morning and when I woke up, it was stuck at 59%. Then I started over and a few hours into it, the wu messed up again and grabbed a new one. It seems that I can't go for more than two days without running into problems.

I might as well gpu fold for the team, but that isn't very competitive. A guaranteed 2500 pails in comparison to the 3840 that I should be getting most days.

I think that having my main rig be my folding rig is taking the fun out of things. I tend to not want to use it because it will lower my ppd. Then if I restart it, I have to go through the hassle of finding another keyboard and disabling driver signing because my keyboard doesn't want to work.
