IP35-Pro Vdroop

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Does anyone else get bad vdroop on their IP35-Pro? I never made a big deal about it but it seems that everyone else I talk to says theirs is fine, so I'm thinking I may have a problem with mine.

When I set for example 1.39v in BIOS, at idle it pops between 1.37-1.35 like every 2 seconds or so, and whenever I stress it, it goes down to 1.34.

Is this normal?

No I wouldn't call that normal, that's some pretty rough vDroop.

My motherboard was worse with old BIOSes, I would set for 1.5v and just get 1.41v


Try updating your bios to see if it gets any better, worked for me.

I had recently updated it, from version 14 to version 16. And the vdroop stayed the same over 10, 14, and now 16.

So, any ideas what it may be?

So, would this be RMA'able, because this board only has a 1 year warranty and it expires like... this month I think.

I'd try a volt mod, I don't think they'll take it in for RMA for that reason.

There is only 1 volt mod for this board that I know of, and surely I don't feel comfortable doing it, much less voiding my warranty in the process.

That's nothing in terms of vdroop.

Hell, mine idles at 1.45-1.44, and when you load it, it drops to 1.39.

Yeah, but when you say idles at 1.45-1.44, what is it set to in the BIOS?

Mine is set at 1.44 in BIOS, but idles at 0.02v less, so at 1.42v, and load it goes to 1.39.

So its the same in terms of the idle to load drop, but what about the BIOS to idle drop?

Mine has about a .1 volt drop going from idle to load also. It just happens with these boards.
