i'm looking differents models of the 890 Mobo, what's is the diference between 890 Deluxe 3, 4 and 5??? (i think only deluxe 5 can handle AM3+...).
I read in the 890Fx asrock's manual that there is an option about LLC, but in one review, the writer says this about
"In general, the board tends to overvolt vCore under load by 0.04V with ensuing 0.02V or so vDroop. For example, when we set the vCore to 1.40V, the CPU received about 1.44V when the load is light (e.g. a single Super Pi instance), but when all 6 cores were loaded fully we measured about 1.42V. Once the CPU was idle and C1E kicked in, the board lowered the vCore below 1.20V accordingly.
Unfortunately, we found neither the BIOS reading nor Windows-based software including ASRockâ€™s own OC Tuner utility correctly informs us of the actual amount of current the CPU receives. To make matters worse, the BIOS labels referring to vDroop control are highly misleading. The BIOS offers four options under â€œLoad-line Calibrationâ€ section: Auto, Normal, Slight, Disable. We advise you to stick to â€œNormalâ€ if you overclock, and to â€œAutoâ€ for stock operation with TurboCore enabled, since the other two options will take your CPU to a voltage rollercoaster. â€œNormalâ€ was also the most predictive of all as we exampled above, so without reliable software readings it is the only option we would take when overclocking an X6 CPU."
PS: i'm reading in the Gigabyte GA-990FXA-Series Owners Thread/Club user who have differences in Vcore Between load and idle states.....
