Trying to wrap my head around VID, vcore, and offsets... I had my CPU set but changed some settings and couldn't remember old results and what not... so I just need help understanding this right here. Using HWinfo as a monitor.
Motherboard: ASrock Z97 OC Formula
Frequency: 4.7GHz (reduces to 800MHz at idle)
Core voltage: override 1.280 (doesn't change idle)
All Cstates enabled
Everything else auto
During Prime95 small FFTs torture test, I was maxing out at 4700MHz obviously, but my vcore was only reaching around 1.016volts, and it read VID as 1.280volts... shouldn't Vcore be reaching 1.280 volts as well?
I'm just not understanding how I should be settings offsets, and what I should be expecting from Vcore in relation to VID.
Edit: it's also at 1.016volts during idle... Prime 95 was stable throughout. I also don't even understand the point of the offset when using manual/fixed voltages, because it just changes the load and idle by the offset value, so why not just set what you want those to be since it's already fixed mode?
