Explain what a 'Pencil Mod' is then we may be able to help you. As far as I know, there is no such mod.

if you dont know what a pencil mod is then you yourself cant help me. im waiting for someone who knows what the term means to help me out with this question. btw this should not be in the overclocking section like the other poster said, vdroop is caused from the vrms of the motherboard so this is a motherboard question. some people on toms hardware should have there replys deleted

Ok I get it,

First find the EPU chip which is located at the top left of the first memory slot.
Just above the Epu chip there are 4 resisters. 2 vertical and 2 horizontal. You want to pencil the top of the 2 vertical resisters. Boom, you’re done.

Here is a picture to help you find the resisters:
