    I am having a decent amount of Vdroop on my motherboard, almost .75V under heavy load, so I am wondering if there are any mods to fix this. Pencil mods perhaps?

    You mean 0.075, i'm sure.

    Dude: it's not as bad as you think. In my P5K-SE, i set it in BIOS @ 1.525 and it read 1.400 in AI Suite ...

    I'm not aware of any pencil mod for that board but that doesn't mean there aren't any.

    EDIT

    Also: i just tried disabling "Load Line Calibration" (VDroop control from BIOS, in Rampage Formula) and it actually improved my OC in the form of lowering by 0.01425v to achieve the same OC and lowering 3ยบ @ the same time.

    Yeah, I mean 0.075. I have already checked my bios for load line calibration and found none.

    I tired that before and never found anything, I guess that it just came out. Just for anyone looking, it works.

    I penciled it down to 1K ohms and these were my results.

    Before:
    BIOS Setting 1.425, Windows 1.37V, load 1.34V

    After:
    Bios Setting 1.425V Windows 1.39V, load 1.38V
