Z370 gaming 5, first sensor in hwinfo64 while idle or under load using real bench 2.56 stress test mode with 16gb ram at xmp, I get a lot of vdroop under all voltage readings for everything under the first sensor.
For example, CPU set to 1.26 manual bios, while stressing real bench, drops to 1.248 stays there, jumps to 1.272 once in awhile or may drop even lower to 1.23.
12 volt fluctuates, vccsa, vccio, ddr, they all drop lower than what's set in bios according to first sensor readout. I have llc at Turbo, overclocked 8700k to 4.7ghz
On an z370 msi board with same psu this did not happen but they had throttle issues from vrm temps going wacko.
On my msi carbon z270 with mild overclocked 7700k and same psu no crazy voltage fluctuions in sensor readings from hwinfo64..
Is this a gigabyte thing? Is it a defect, bug or glitch? Can system be trusted for long term stability with voltages that drop? Is it just a sensitive sensor??
Is it happening to all gigabyte gaming 7 and 5 owners of z370 series?
I have in my office a gigabyte system with an i5-750 from many years ago and it's runnng real bench stress test max overclock on everything with poor quad CPU and it does not have voltage fluctuations every second or at all and I got everything in that old ass system over locked to max using an old corsair vx 450w psu full load and it runs stable..
Got a gigabyte z97 sli with an i54690 and I have to see now if that system has vdroop on everything or not.
Can bios update fix this or am I screwed with my 2nd z370 board being defective?
Newegg won't let you refund or exchange for different one only same replacement item. If the board is crap what do I do???
