I've seen a very large difference between large and small vdroop with the new 1.9b1 BIOS. Before that, it was mostly subjective as I noticed I was crashing a lot less with low vdroop. I realize that having a higher number of power phases translates into cleaner and more available power, but MSI claims that their 6+1 is really the equivalent of 24 phases.

I have seen no difference between high and low vdroop control with 1.91b. Strange.

I have all of my power settings disabled and am taking note of voltages between idle and full load. With high vdroop, I'd see a gigantic voltage increase (taking me a good 150 or so mV above what I have set in BIOS), and with low it would keep me close to what I have vcore set at in BIOS.

This is using CPU-Z version 1.57.1 and a b2 board. I see you have a b3 board and are using a slightly different model. (P67A-GD55 vs P67A-GD65) I wonder if the revision may have changed that or it's a difference between the GD65 and GD55.

Quick question...

Is there an option to halt the post screen and require a key press to continue to boot?

On my old 780i there was "halt on..." I just set that to "all errors" so that way it stopped when it didn't find a floppy drive.

On this board I see no option to halt the post screen...?

I was on newegg the other day and noticed that the gd65 board was actually in stock which surprised me, so I ordered it, and it was sold out right after. Earlier I had ordered the Ga p67a ud3 board, but unfortunately I did not read reviews of it before ordering (should have known better). I will ship the Gigabyte board back when I get it. This will replace my Core 2 Quad system with a GA ep45 ud3r board. This has been a really good board for the price.

I look forward to getting all the new stuff in and playing with it.

Has anyone here with this board run the 2500k at 4ghz with no voltage increases? I have no plans to go over 4ghz.

Should hit 4.2 on stock.

Yeah, might be the revision. I'll do some more testing when I get home.

Ughhh, I'm so talking to Newegg when they open. I've been waiting for my RMA confirmation for some time now, and have watched my board go on sale, then back to out of stock a few times now. I have a sneaking suspicion they're rationing out the RMA boards while keeping a few in stock to sell. This is the opposite of what I was told by customer service.

With regards to your question: You should be able to run pretty close to stock volts at 4Ghz. I'd set it to 40x multiplier and see what auto does. If you have stability, and leave all the power features on, you should see something like 1.6Ghz@.89vcore idle, and 4Ghz@1.2xx-1.3xxvcore on load IIRC. Of course, you don't have to use C1E/EIST, etc. (I don't )

@B!ohazard: I look forward to your findings!

So finally got my board and rig all set up and loving it.

I've posted and validated 5.1ghz on my 2600k w/ HT on so far. I didn't even try higher. I just wanted official entry in the 5ghz oc club lol (with a little bit higher than the req ofc).

Currently stress testing 4.6ghz @ 1.325 (1.376 w/ high vDroop on at full load) for my 24/7 OC. I'm getting low 70's as my max temps w/ this OC. Is this good/bad? Core temp reports the TJ Max for this chip at 98*C so I'm going to assume my temps are good. I plan to upgrade from my H70 to a Rasa eventually too so hopefully that'll help. Maybe i'll even bump volts a tad and go up to 4.7-4.8 24/7.

All I know is this is mind blowingly fast compared to the rig i'm coming from. Old rig was a Core 2 duo @ 3ghz w/ 6gb ddr 800 ram.
