0.08v vdroop at 1.3v? Too much? Can it worsen?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Is this normal? It seems incredibly high for only 1.30v. When I run prime95, my voltage hits 1.22v or 1.23v, which is a 0.08v vdroop!

What is going on!

yes it's normal

does your mobo have LLC (load line calibration)?

I don't think so. I've looked around in my bios and I haven't seen any LLC related options.

vdroop depends on the mobo.. my previous 785g had similar vdroop (up to .1v) but my biostar 890fx keeps vcore rock solid (+/- .01v) under load

i know asus has LLC settings.. i guess gigabyte doesn't, not sure if there's anything you can do about it

This is not what I am worried about though - I am worried that the vdroop is worsening, though I cannot remember what it used to be (1.28 I think). What would cause the vdroop to get worse? And also, if it is getting worse, how much is too much? People say +/-0.05v, but I am at 0.08v!
This is extreme!

Can vDroop even get worse? I know its something built into motherboards, so how can it worsen over time?

This is what I hate about using forums
Too many lurkers! 99 views and 2 responses? This forum is full of experts, yet noone comments on anything!

Come on guys.. is 0.08vdroop bad at 1.3v? Can a 1055T run stable at stock clocks at 1.23v?

Why do you worry so much?

Do you want to know if it can run stable @ stock volts with that vdroop? Stress it! If it fails, then it needs more volts. If it does not, then you have a great chip I guess!

I believe that the only solution for vdroop in mobos with no LLC is to increase the vcore.

And... as I understood, vdroop is not a motherboard failure, it is there on purpose, to keep the cpu within it's TDP.

Right, but what I am asking, is if vdroop can worsen over time?
And sorry for coming off as incredibly worrisome. I am VERY OCD about stuff like this, so I can't really help it.

Well, 10 hours of running intelburntest side by side with prime95, and no bluescreen so far. Rock solid at 1.232v.

I've heard great things about these chips, but they keep surprising me more and more.
