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.
