I use a toothpick. The actual button is very recessed inside of that hole. You will know you pressed it because you can feel it kinda 'click' a little bit when you push it.
However, the button must be held down for a moment (I'd hold it down for 5 seconds just for good measure).

I recommend first setting the Load-Line Calibration to Ultra High in order to make it as easy as possible to calculate it. After that, go into Windows and open Core Temp
. If it's displaying a VID that is like 1.3511V or something, then it's showing you a useful number. If it's showing a very low VID of like less than 1.1V, then you must put load on the CPU by running something that doesn't stop (like Prime95). Some people have to put load on their CPU in order to get Core Temp to display their VID.
Once you get Core Temp to show you your actual VID, make a mental note of it (or just write it down, or put it in Notepad). If it fluctuates at all, remember all of the VIDs you see. For example: mine fluctuates between 1.3511V and 1.3611V. Therefore, if I want about 1.400V, then I must use an Offset of +0.040V because 0.040 + 1.3611 = 1.4011. If I wanted a voltage lower than 1.3511V, then I would use a Minus Offset like -0.020V which would result in 1.3311V to 1.3411. Now, the actual voltages that get displayed by CPU-Z will be slightly different and they will also only have 3 decimal places, but still: this is how to do it.
This is actually quite easy, and I think you will agree with me once you begin doing it.
