can some one explain vdroop and what the mod does

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
eplain vdrop or droop whatever.. and why is it a problem to have a lower voltage- isnt that generaly good - or is it too low

also explain the pencil mod for it- does it just allow more power through the board?- please explain.

I only know pencil mod.. i believe Vdroop help decrease the voltage....
Basicly.. if you had 1.5 in your BIOS,, and u open CPU-Z.. you get 1.44-1.48 voltage... and a pencil mod will help you a little.. before my vdroop was 0.06volt.. that was horrible.. after pencil mod.. my vdroop is now 0.012.. (:

Pencill mod is like.. find that very tiny "RESISTOR" [that thing that cause the Vdroop]..
and draw a line in between it.

Also.. pencil mod can be erased.. since you hve to use a pencil on your resistor.. but again. that little tiny resistor is VERY tiny.. which mean it is fragile.. so if you want to pencil mod your current motherboard.. do it lightly.. with a sharpend pencil.....

~pencil mod.. the pencil's granite is like a conductor.. think of it as.. it's going from one end, to the pencil, then to the other end.. instead of going to one end.. [resistor push less voltage] then to the other end.


*Vdroop is there for a reason, it help your chip live longer, same as your motherboard, if you're like an hardcore overclocker.. and too lazy to do hardcore ohms mod, then do pencil mod.*

Also.. i only have pencil mod.. because i want to be stable at 1.46 volt under bios.. instead of 1.55volt..
