    Default Crasy DDR2/DDR3 voltage @P35C-DS3R with F7 bios

    This have been brought up on the forum befoure, but I desicided to make this thread anyway.

    When overvolting the DDR2 with +0.4 to 2.2 that is the default voltage on many memory modules the bios sets an eff. voltage of 2.384 insted of the 2.2 its suposted to set. Thats +1.8 of what`s expected.

    Let this be a waring so people don`t fry their memory.

    Janus is this fixed in the F8 bios?

    Mr Janus, you are here to provide tech support correct? and you have some deep knowledge of the gigabyte product line correct? and you've also used and tested the products? tried overclocking, went into the bios and grabbed a multimeter right to verify volts? so you know there is a lot of people out there who buy a board that shows voltage increments that it comes nowhere near achieving, correct?
    i experience the exact same problem Laaw experiences and so do many others. now don't dodge the question, is Gigabyte going to fix these voltage issues or not? whether or not i buy gigabyte again for my next build will depend on how that question is answered. i was planning on buying ddr2-1066 which the board says it supports and the sticks i was looking are rated at 2.2 volts, so if i set my bios to +.4 it shows 2.38 as the voltages(i discovered this last night). i am using the f7 bios on a p35c rev 1.1 board.

    the cpu is also undervolting but at least that one i can deal with, but i read all these post of people who's ram died or the board went dead on them and i wonder is the crazy vdimm has anything to do with it.
    at any case all voltage options in the bios need to perform as intended and i'm sad to say that 1.35 is actually 1.30 in my bios system health section and 1.30625 is 1.28 for vcore. and that 2.1 is 2.13 and 2.0 is 2.1 which is crazy.

    i haven't seen you answer in any posts the complaints of inacurate temperatures. whatever the answer is just give it to us. if it's that the hardware it's flawed or that you don't know or gigabyte will not let you answer...tell us something. all i know is if this doesn't get fixed my next board will not be gigabyte. plain and simple.

    (from another thread)

    It would be nice to set my 2.2v ram to 2.2v or maybe even 2.3v, but I only have these choices:

    Setting :: Actual
    Normal :: 1.872
    +0.1 :: 1.872
    +0.2 :: 2.128
    +0.3 :: 2.128
    +0.4 :: 2.4
    +0.5 :: 2.4

    Guess im not the only one with this afterall. Janus to be true with us, have you the authority to report this to peoples that can fix it?
    If you have, can you please do it AND report back and say "A fix is on the way!!!".
    And please do it soon, or else im getting a new board.
    And to honest , I dont think it will be a Gigabyte board.

    Try the F8 bios:

    Normal : 2.4
    +0.1 : 2.0
    +0.2 : 2.128
    +0.3 : 2.256
    +0.4 : 2.4
    +0.5 : 2.528
