I see what you mean but with my settings the voltage is still the same idle and load on 4.5 than 1.6 and 4.5

I recommend going with offset voltage. Looks like Dustin1 provided you with optimal settings, I on the other hand use an asus board and it's quite different. Although once you find your stable clock and voltage go offset!

offset seems to be a disaster on these gigabyte boards. that's not to say you haven't been an awesome help along with Dustin.

really owe you guys

Overclocking is a trail and error process, you just have to keep going with it. Now you have optimal settings, setting up offset voltage won't be hard you just have to try different settings a few times to see what it's giving you at the end and correct it.

Edit: I know it might be scary when your PC bsod's or does not boot, it's perfectly safe though!

Truth. Giga can't do offset and LLC at the same time, unlike your ASUS board.

I'm fine using LLC, cannot boot at my overclock using offset. Using offset, you are not able to set vcore manually - the system selects what it thinks you need. For my system, that means I have to add significant voltage, and it won't boot....more or less the same thing that willsk (and others) experienced.

Ok if i'm going for the offset route eventually. Which are the numbers i give you. the voltages shown when i get to the Overclock i want i'm guessing??

glad it's not just me. tbh i'm happy with a stable OC and a tiny vrise if as long as the voltages and temps aren't rediculous

Kato: when i first tried the offset approach it booted me into windows at 1.41 volts for a 4.4ghz OC

Update 1.305 passed giving approx 1.356v load. moving onto 1.3 in bios

Edit: although i've decreased the volts i still appear to get 1.356v load is this normal/ok

ok this is getting weird now. I'm down to 1.295v in bios but still getting 1.356 load which is the same for 1.31,1.30. Should i be worried?

Forgive my ignorance for not reading the entire thread, but what seems to be the problem?

If you're setting the vcore manually to 1.295 and under load it increasing it far more than that, it means that the LLC (multi Step load line) is set to high.
