Alright thanks, got offset working.
What power saving features do you guys enable?
With speedstep enabled and the c states set to defaults/auto (disabled?) the idle power consumption is very consistent when set to balance mode in windows. I also tested it with speedstep off with c0/c1 enabled to let the cpu/mobo do the work and the power readings seems to spaz out changing every second, pretty much no power savings at all versus fully manual mode.
At 4.5ghz idle...
