I wanted auto as a first, first step~ you took him in the right direction after that~ but I wanted to see if he could hit 45 without needing PLL Overvoltage. If he can hit 45x, his goal~ then we can go to manual voltage. I didn't want him to overshoot or undershoot. If he can't do 45x on auto, then we wouldn't really have a good starting point, but you got him where I wanted him eventually anyway so it turned out ok. :3

how would I get my PC to do all of this now with offset voltage instead of a fixed voltage?
There's a more precise science to doing what I did to get this to happen, someone might be more clear about exactly how this is done but I'll try to explain it in practical terms.
I use offset voltage, and it takes some trial and error. For me, what I did is I found out where I was most stable with manual voltage like you are now (which was 1.36 or so), then look at CPU-Z during LOAD on Prime95 to see where it was at when it was stable on load voltage wise.
So I set my voltage to +0.010 and saw my voltage was 1.39 or so in Prime95. It was stable, but more voltage than I wanted~ so I dropped it in 0.005 increments until my load voltage was where I wanted it to be. If It didn't boot into Windows, I'd up my LLC a notch which made my idle volts more stable. Every time you do this though, recheck your offsets.
I ended up actually only needing to set it to -0.005 to get to 1.35-1.36v on load, totally stable. These numbers are totally dependent on your VID, and vary from chip to chip, which is why I said it'll depend on trial and error. Like finding out where your center is, your zero~ then adding or subtracting with offset from there.
Maybe someone may help better with this.Edited by Inverse - 10/12/11 at 7:44pm
