Is Offset Mode still enabled?
Also, are you going by CPU-Z?
Apologies I had put the bios back to auto mode as I'm not that keen on running at 1.328v. Basically when the motherboard is in auto mode it sets the CPU voltage to 1.248v, which is already pretty high, however I do quite a lot of less intensive work so I would like the idle voltage of 1.000v to save a little heat and power. I was advised to put the CPU mode to offset, once this is complete the voltage ups to 1.328von load, the idle goes to 1.000 but my load voltage is way more so I'm not really gaining anything.
I am using CPU-Z
The interesting part is that if if I set my ram to 1366 in offset mode then the voltage stays at 1.272, as soon as I set my ram frequency to 1866 it pumps the voltage on load to 1.328v. However both are more than the 1.248-1.256 I get on auto without the lower idle voltages.
