Gigabyte EP35-DS3L VCore issue, read before you buy! - Page 2

Make sure that your friend reports the issue. The Vcore issue coupled with the EIST function not be available is the problem everyone is having. Apparently they are not able to replicate these problems with their test motherboards, so I believe they feel it is a human error issue.

Thanks for the input, but this is a problem with the motherboard or bios. The only problem I have as far as voltage goes is a very subtle VDroop of 0.015 volts on the VCore Rail, which is very common to Gigabyte boards I guess.

Im having the same problem i made a thread but no one could help me. i also contacted gigbyte, they were no help.

I asked their tech support if i could flash to f7 bios and they said no. But he told me the boards are identical aside from bios. any 1 here tried to flash?

Good thing I wont be overclocking when it arrives, hopefully in a month or so the problem will be sorted out. On another note why did they discontinue the original P35 and start making EP35? Whats the "E" mean?

I had the same problem.
I tried the F5c Beta Bios and it's working now.
