Hmm, that shouldn't be like that. Are you sure its not dropping down when idle?
Here's what mine looks like

Did you enable C1E?
C3, C6 states on Auto?

Edit: oh okay, try setting it at a lesser value of say -0.030

Here, try this for me.

Boot into BIOs and save your current configuration to CMOS. Then..

-Set your multiplier to 4.5Ghz
-Disable "Real-Time Changes in OS"
-Disable C1E/C3 states
-Disable Temp Monitor
-Manually set your vcore (Voltage) to 1.315
-Set LLC (Aka Load-Line Calibration) to level 6
-PLL Set to 1.7 instead of 1.8

Boot with those settings and stress test that specific configuration and see how it goes. If you BSOD because of x124 or x101 then just bump up the vcore by 0.05!

Once stressing with those settings, lmk what your Idle, and Load voltage is at.

Yes, your voltage in Windows WILL be higher! DO NOT panic, that is normal! This should help you lower your vcore and keep your vcore at a more controlled standpoint and help with temps a bit (If their even an issue.)

EDIT - Also, if it is stable, then you can start decreasing your vcore down by 0.05 until it becomes unstable. Forgot to add that part, sorry.

ok just started and idle was 1.34 and currently stressing using the custom prime you gave me and load is 1.368-1.38v

Edit* temps seem fine. Also my owrry always was based on what i read around is that your vcore had to match bios when LLC was enabled or it was bad hence why i never tried this method??

One other quick concern does all this trial and error going abck and fourth playing with voltages damage my pc in anyway spesh when i get BSODS. i know voltages are safe till around 1.5v but just curious??

No, they do not have to match. LLC is there to eliminate vdroop or at least help make it not so bad.

If those settings were stable, try lowing your vcore.

I USE this method for a 24/7 use at 4.7Ghz so I wouldn't worry about it man.

awesome thanks buddy
means i might get my ideal 4.5 this way

what would you consider a worthy stress test before lowering the vcore?? 2 half hour runs of custom prime?? 1344 & 1792??

1st - 1344/1344 ALL but 2.5GB of RAM used for 30 minutes.
2nd - 1792/1792 ALL but 2.5GB of RAM used for 30 minutes.
3 - Running IBT (Don't need to run Maximum, but it's recommended, Standard or High will suffice.)

Something to keep in mind, on some occasions you can fail IBT, pass Prime, vise versa. So if one or the other fail, then just keep testing with the one doesn't fail or which one your more comfortable running with. IBT will be MORE stressful one your CPU vs Prime. So you get to pick your poison.

Goodluck man, I'll be checking this thread in 30 minutes to an hour to see if you have any results!

Congrats! Glad to see the 4.5Ghz is working for ya, let me know what are your final results are.

Is it ok that it still goes to 1600mhz when idle (edit* ive turned off EIST now so it's 4.5 constant). it's ok i'm still only raising the multipliers not the clock ratio isn't it?

edit 1.31 successful moving to 1.305

I have mine dropping in idle, I prefer it. Uses less power and will make my processor last longer. It kicks on to max when it needs to, and I see no performance loss by it. The chip engages when it has to very quickly.
