Hi, i was looking at solutions for my BSOD problem. Currently rerceiving x101 BSODs
One solution i commonly find is "increase vcore voltage"
Just like the memory voltage i see a discrepantion between the voltage specified in the BIOS and the voltage really measured with intel desktop utilities....
In the bios the CPU Core Voltage is specified as 1.04v
In IDU i see 0.96v
What is the truth ?? And what is causing this ??
It seems that 0.96 is pretty low and might be the cause of my x101 BSODs .....
I see no way to change it in the bios ... maybe also a bios multiply factor error here ????
any ideas ??
Mr.M, I got news for you - I 've just contacted Intel support, informed about my issue, memory overvoltage as discussed, with DH77KC I've got, referenced other sources related to it, including this particular thread which is, btw, not the only one around here related to this problem, and guess what - some guy Daniel B. from Intel replyed that Intel is not aware of such problem, has no reports about this problem and, here is the icing on the cake - I like this masterpiece in paticular from his reply - " In order to answer your question, disregarding the forum threads you have mentioned or your different researches in Google...."
So, my natural conclusion is that Intel support simply sucks.... These dudes do not even know, or simply ignore what people are talking about on Intel's own support forums. Not sure what Intel is doing, but whatever it is, it's not taking care of this problem. I think it's time to send to Mr. Otellini a real sincere message.
I'm proud to tell you, that I RMA'd my DZ77GA-70k due to heavy BIOS bugs after 2 and a half months. My dealer tested those issues and immediately issued an exchange! I'm gonna receive an ASUS P8C WS - less price and higher quality.
I still bought an DH77DF for my HomeNAS, because its specs fitted so well. But if I could travel back in time, I would give myself a beefy headbutt in the past for doing that.
