But DTS sensors do not change based on board, without vcore and current changing. I saw no direct change with DTS sensors going from B2 to B3 boards here.
Yes they are core temps, I always use core temps and my mobo doesn't even record the tcase temps anyways.

I have used real temps on my other board and the temps were basically the same as the ones recorded by hw-monitor.

So you still havnt answered the question... Are those vcore set in BIOS or is that underload/idle?

Set in BIOS of course. The vdroop for the two mobos are about the same with the same line calibration.

Both mobos drop about .05-.075 volts under load.

You may want to change your sig from Asus to Asrock.
Anyway, all you can do is either try flashing a different BIOS version, or exchange the board.

I've seen people argue both ways on B3's clocking both worse, the same, or better than B2's. There really shouldn't be a difference, unless there is something wrong with the power regulation, or if there is a hardware change. But hardware changes will affect everyone's board. Some boards had a revision number change, and the ALC892 codec was changed to ALC889 (no idea why), but the UD5 had a hardware VRM change on the B3 board which fixed the LLC issues on the B2 board, but there was no revision change to show that. And as far as voltages are concerned, you can't know if the voltages on the sensors are accurate without measuring them with a DMM. Maybe you can claim a RMA and set up a cross shipment for another board, then you'll be able to test both with a fine tooth comb. Your choice.
