I think I got it.

One more thing, I can't seem to get it Offset Voltage. It's on Manual and the box is greyed out and wont let me select it. I just want the CPU to cut the voltage and frequency during idle and I have all the power saving features enabled but it still doesn't do it.

Also is there a way to disable the iGPU altogether?

I think the best you can do is ...

Didn't know this club existed, but I've been running one of these bad boys since April of 2012

Asus Gene IV GeneZ/Gen3
Intel 3770k @ 4.8 Ghz
32GB G.Skill Ripjaws @ 1814Mhz
Crucial M4 512GB
3TB WD 7200 RPM storage drive
2TB WD 5400 RPM backup drive
LG BD-RE drive
2x EVGA 670 FTW in SLI
Cooler Master Elite 371 case
Corsair 850TX PSU
Antec 920 Kuhler
2x 27" Apple Cinema Display LED

Runs everything amazingly well, actual OC is something like 4834Mhz, BCLK is 100.7, VID is 1.345.

Never got over 83c with intel burn test and runs around 33c idle.

Smooth like butter, I recommend this board to anyone.

I sold my other board and kept this one because of the state of the LGA pins, and sometimes when you pull the CPU out they need some minor tweaking to be in working order again. I couldn't ebay it in this condition without making enemies so I decided to keep it for myself. On the other boards I used, I could get 4.5, 4.6, 4.7 with about the same voltage I get 4.3 right now. I did notice the Maximus BIOS has way more options and voltages than any other BIOS I have ever used. Perhaps my problem lies in those settings. Does anyone have an tips or pointers that they would care to share with me?

Yeah its not the mobo unless its physically damaged, I have overclocked my old 2500k to 4.8ghz, my current 2700k to 4.8ghz, and ran a 3570k at 4.8ghz a few days before getting rid of it.

Here is a link to my post about two pages back, it should help you out

Also to get offset you need to set vrm phase control to optimised to allow the setting. BUT dont leave it on auto or it will go out of control. I have watched 1.60v peak for a moment once then imediatly, be sure to give it some sort of value to match the voltage you need.

Okay I set to offset mode. I cant seem to get a specific voltage set though. I aimed for 1.35v in BIOS and I keep stepping it down one bump at a time and when I get to OS it's still in the 1.36-1.37 range. I do like that my voltage is finally dropping in idle.

Also this kind of worries me. In HWinfo64 it says my voltage for all cores is 1.36v, but in my list of power voltages it says "vCore - 1.56v"
My temps aren't super high so IDK if this is an errant reading or what?

That link was very helpful. This thread has been very helpful. I'm glad that I got bored with Toms Hardware and came to OCN. I've received good advice on numerous occasions! biggrin.gif


EDIT:

I just got home from work and couldn't wait to retry Offset Voltage mode. I got it working beautifully!

http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2538521

And I can downvolt in idle states finally! Thanks again fellas! I love this little board! I just cut a window in my case this past weekend so I can see her and wave to her.
