yup, I was thinking of doing the same thing with the bloodrage, they have pads that measure everything from the ram voltage on every DIMM to pll,qpi, vcore, vvt, ioh, you name it!

for ground use the other probe and touch metal on your CPU case or a pci-e bracket

Yes you need a ground, Im sorry, I just meant that yes you can solder a wire with a molex to the Vcore reading point. Like Doc said any point should do, case, pci, any bare metal spot on the PC.

EDIT: Its best to solder the ground on to a point on the mobo so you can take it out easily or you can just put a ring terminal on the ground and screw it down to the PCI slot screws, whatever is best for you.

what voltage_drop said, case is easy if you dont to solder anything else but any of the places where you screw the risers or whatever they are should work too, that way you have a molex connector with one hole ground and one hold your read point so you can just leave the probes in there and worry about other things

I always had that area nailpolished and insulated and never measured voltage on the board.

I put mine on switches so I can turn each mod on and off to "see" the effect.

While of course not as accurate, I just monitor in CPU-Z.

I would boot in, load CPU-Z and flip the vdroop switch. Then dial it in so that the vcore didn't change or drop when going to load. If you keep turning, it will also give you a modest vcore boost all by itself.

Then I'd flip the switch to activate the vcore mod and dial it up to voltage I want in CPU-Z.

Whether it was completely accurate in CPU-Z or not, I never cared about. I was gonna give it what it needed to clock as high as possible under DICE or LN2 until it stopped scaling, regardless of the true voltage. Much different frame of reference than if you're modding a gpu for 24/7 folding voltages on water.

Soldering a lead to the vcore readout is certainly preferable and more accurat, though!

Patch that is the no frills straight to the cut attitude I have come to expect from you, and based on your results I won't second guess that method either. CPU-Z can't be too far off to begin with, maybe cross reference with everest and hwmonitor too, but the question is, is there a limit to how much voltage a board can read?

Since you guys are the only ones who might actually care, I gotta share some excitement about my new toy.

The EVGA P55 Classified is incredible. It's an overclocking dream. Not only does it have a conveniently located panel with a plethora of voltage reading points, it also provides you with a grounded probe and an readout screen for your voltages!

Along with a super rich BIOS and the EVBot - that sucker comes stock like a fully soldered up, modded board with everything on trimmers. (Granted, the evbot was a separate purchase.....)

I'm gonna have a blast using it for our current OCN comp.......

I want to see, that sounds BAD AS5, how much? Want link to board please

P55 Classified

EVBot

Not cheap. But I can also use the evbot on my X58 Classy 4way.....and also on Fermi when it comes out.

After a bloodrage and 3 classifieds recently, I'm getting a little tired of red and black.....I'm waiting anxiously for DFI to come out with a monster board for some lemon/lime action.

Oh man I am so jealous, I think I might even hate you now LOL J/K
