Hmm. Have you seen others with this problem on the EVO? The Pro stays reasonably consistent with the right tweaks.
I could see how you could say the level of flux is reasonable, just remember I'm comparing it to a board that had zero flux. Something did just occur to me though. The P6X was only that rock solid up to 1.25v and I've never run my EVO at that low a voltage. So maybe if I took it down to that it wouldn't fluctuate either.
Well, frmo what's in the manual, I am led to belive that if you are not tweaking the DIGI VRM, maybe the heatsinks aren't needed. But as soon as you tweak it to provide more current, those heatsinks must be in place, as stated in the manual over and over and over again.
Well that's the thing, just about anyone overclocking following the Asus guide their reps have posted around on forums would have been messing with vrm settings. If there's any chance that accounted for the relatively small number of dead boards and instability at high clocks I've seen on some threads it would be an interesting result.
