Add 0.010/0.020 to the vcore?

I do have vdroop, how do I disable that? I've noticed that it even changes a lot under heavly load that the vcore goes up and down a bit.




I don't think so, the only CPU Features I have enabled are:
HT
Execute BIT
Virtualization

Check this image out, which one of them should also be enabled?

Check Voltage settings. Might be under there.

Basically you shade in the resister that controls vdroop. With a pencil, quite literally.

This will help eliminate and/or reduce vdroop.

It does the same thing as Load Line Calibration.

hehe, it's not as crazy as it sounds. It's pretty simple to do and it yields the same results as LLC.

best to do it with a voltmeter though

I see, I did however find this setting in my BIOS:

VDroop Control = High VDroop

There are two options "High VDroop" and "Low VDroop", what should it be set to?

Why doesn't the bios have LLC? Sounds like a cheap motherboard..

Is LLC not under the voltage section in your BIOS?

Set it to Low VDroop, that way your vcore won't go to much lower then what you have set in BIOS.

He found it.

Set it to Low Vdroop or disable it completely if you can

Seems like I found it.. Running Large FFT in Prime95 now, hope it will run smooooth all night.

However it seems like the ##### vcore jumos from ~1.360 to 1.4 now.. so this setting might not be the best?..

looks good frW.

EDIT: yes you want that Low Vdroop setting.

you're saying it's 1.36v IDLE and 1.4v Load?
