right im overclocking my little e2160 on a asus p5kc and have got to 300x9
fsb which is 2.7ghz with the vcore set at 1.35v. cpuz shows 1.328 on idle and wen running prime95 this drops to 1.28 are these two figures vdroop as its set at 1.35 or is cpuz not accurate enought??

also one other thing iv heard that some motherboards have some settings it the bios too help with vdroop is this true??

cheers again

The difference from bios to idle in windows is Vdrop, the difference from idle to load, in windows, is Vdroop. Vdroop and Vdrop are normal, some motherboards have more or less, and different chips can have more vdroop at higher clocks.

The feature that you are asking about is LLC (load line calibration).

enabling LLC (Load Line Callibration) in bios will prevent this if you have that option.

If not do a google search for "Asus P5Kc vdroop mod" alot of boards have removeable pencil mods to help prevent this...
