What do you mean by static speedstep?
My grammar was bad there I should have used a period or comma between static and speedstep sorry for the confusion, however Static means it's fixed or stationary with little to no fluxuation. I use the static method, some call it manual, to know what my offset should be. Every chip is different and it's important to know the minimum stable vcore to achieve a given clock. When using power saving features that includes the low vcore at idle as well as the high at load. Although at 4.0 and under LLC is not as important it plays a roll in terms of how much vdroop there is so most do not use auto and leave it to chance. For example I need ultra high LLC with an offset of -0.010 to remain stable at 4.6 or a x46 multi. If I use High LLC the vdroop at idle drops below the minimum to remain stable which for my proc is about .992 - 1.0 which can cause idle time BSODs conversely it (ultra High ) puts my load vcore to 1.344 (w/ -0.010 offset) which when using manual/static vcore is the minimum I need to be 100% stable for my proc I think it should be obvious using the static method first is necessary if you want to use the power saving features for no other reason but to know what your target voltages need to be. I hope this makes sense to you and it helps. LMK
edit grammar daaaaaaa....
FYI when using the power saving features in offset mode I enable C1E and leave C3 & C6 on auto the opposite is true when using the static/manual mode where I disable all.
