Thread: GA-EP45-DS3R + E8500 VCore Question

    Default GA-EP45-DS3R + E8500 VCore Question

    Quick Specs:
    GA-EP45-DS3R (F9 Bios)
    TWIN2X4096-6400C5 (4Gb 5-5-5-18)

    Stable OC @ 3.8 using all default BIOS settings except:
    PCI-E locked @ 100
    Memory locked @ 5-5-5-18 2.00B (800mhz) 1.9v in TURBO mode

    Only stable VCore: 1.30000 (1.23 - 1.248 in CPU-Z)

    Does this vcore seem high for such a mild overclock? Also is there a VDroop or Loadline Calibartion settings on this board?

    If you do not see Loadline in the MIT Section then there is likely not on your board. I think they removed it in P45.

    Well I need to see the rest of your settings to be sure if you need that Vcore, But with Vdroop and Vdrop it looks pretty good.

    I can say if you set Performance Enhance to Standard you will be able to overclock much further. Using 8GB in Turbo and with only 1.9v is likely the thing that is stopping you.

    Have you added any MCH yet?
