Anyone using this board and notice large swings in Vcore and 12V line? My Vcore swings .28V during 100% cpu load. Swings from 1.47V to 1.75V. My 12V line swings .5V. This is regardless of if everything is default or if my 1.8A is overclocked to 2.4. Cooling is not a problem for the chip or the case.

I just ended my year long vacation from Intel now that there are competitive, overclockable parts for a good price. I prefer Intel stability and this does not seem to have a major impact on stability but does impact my peace of mind. I am used to some voltage variation but not swings like this.

My powersupply is an enermax 430W and I do have extra 12V plug. Any experiences with this board would be appreciated. Thanks.
