offset voltage question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So how do I properly determine what I should put as an offset?

I remember reading that I should take your voltage from cpu-z under load and subtract it from the VID reading in real-temp for your offset..

Perhaps someone can shed some light for me, as i'd like to try this (and have heard it's a better way to overclock)

is this correct?

Well I've been messing around with this lately myself and here's what I can say about it.

I'm currently trying to get 4.8Ghz stable and my vid is 1.3611 in realtemp. I have my offset set to +0.020 with LLC set to ultra high (75%) and during load I'm mostly @ 1.376 with an occasional bump to 1.384.

I like offset because during idle the cpu is using alot less power compared to having a constant voltage flow through it.

I tried +0.020 @ 4.8 and the pc failed to boot.
Also, I tried +0.010 @ 4.5 and the voltage was higher than i'm using manually. I've got my pc oc'd @ 1.335v, where using offset for the same clockspeed had me at 1.395

I failed to see the benefit and i'm probably doing something wrong!

What is your LLC set to?
