overclocking on eVGA 680i
 
Had a quick look on google but cant find anything relevant.


My problem is that I ask for 1.47v and I get 1.42v.

Im not sure what kind of impact this has but it is sure annoying. Some times the drop is even higher :(


Can I solve this? (is it vdrop they are refering to. Apparently I need some sort of fix. :S )

cheers

This is normal with a 680I SLI ,the temps always read lower then what you set then at .

you'll get vdrop on almost any mobo you buy, some worse than others. It is just something you put up with unless you mod your mobo. Sucks :|

Yes this is normal with most, if not all boards. I have to say though my Asus P5K has very little vdrop. A dream to own:)

Dude, where have you been!? Haven't seen you around here in forever. Welcome back. :)


To the OP: It's called "v-droop" and happens when the board loses voltage when a load is placed on it. There's really no cure for it aside from occasional do-it-yourself mods. I know that the P5B Deluxe has this with a quad until you mark over one of the regulators with a #2 pencil.
