I traced all the wire I soldered and found that all were connected properly with no broken link. But no matter what I do, the fluctuation is still the same.

    I set the voltage in BIOS to 1.60. Fluctuation in MBM is between 1.57 and 1.68. With or without the mod, fluctuation is exactly the same.

    Is connecting the two resistors in series (one fixed 22K and one vr 10K) a wrong way of doing it?

    What am I doing wrong?
    you can use a fixed resistor between the ranges of 27-33K..28K will give you the correct vcore but with wider range of fluctuation, 33K will give you a slight increase in vcore but less fluctuation.... 30K is the one that falls in-between..

    **use a soldering iron (30W or below)with small/sharp and clean tip..you can only use 40W or above if you have a good experience with soldering..

    Here's my completed mod for ICE and his P4C800-E

    Overview of the mobo with mods in place


    Close up of the vdimm mod


    Close up of vdroop mod with glue all over the mods Don't worry, the wires are soldered but the glue is just there for backup.

    Ice, have you got your mobo back yet? How is it since modded? I modded mine about a month ago. It tends to work at times while not at other times. Sometimes I check on MBM5 and the fluctuation would still be the same way as before the mod. Other times, it tends to not fluctuate as much. So, I'm pretty getting over this mod thing now as I am not sure it works or not anymore. As I posted earlier, I tested a few resistors and found the 12K and 18K to work the best. I ended using the 18K. But who knows now, I could never tell as I said earlier above.

    regarding your vdimm mod.. it looks like you soldered on pin # 4 & 7 instead of pin # 4 & 6..maybe something's wrong with my eyes..

    Well the mods were working fine, which I confirmed by using MBM5 to test the vdroop mod, and a multimeter to test the vdimm mod. However, there was an issue with the board where my memory modules became really hot to the point that it would error in Memtest86+ even at it's rated speed and timings. Also, the motherboard stopped making the beep sound after the POST, like it normally should. Neither me nor shimmishim could figure out what was causing these anomalies after much troubleshooting. I guess modding your board is a risk you must take, as nothing is guaranteed.

    Don't stress, shimmishim. It's not the end of the world. I wish it could have lived happily ever after. You've been exceptionally helpful in trying to solve those problems. I just got a new P4C800-E Deluxe to replace this one. I'll probably keep it around, just in case. You never know what might happen.
