All we need to know is what VID you see in Real Temp when the CPU is under load. Or apparently if you are lucky like me, then you don't need to have the CPU under load to see the actual VID in Real Temp.
There's nothing else we need to know.
If LLC is set to Ultra High, then basically. I can even simplify it:
- Overclock only using Manual voltage.
- When you are "finished" overclocking, switch over to Offset. By "finished", I mean when you are not going to overclock any higher.
- Enjoy it.
#2 assumes knowing how to set the Offset without too much guesswork.
Well, I'm guessing that VID is the stock voltage that's constant. When you set Offset to Auto VCore skyrockets and not VID. They're just different terms which are misused often, IMO. But I may be wrong because I'm reading lots of mixed reviews about this in Google.
Or could it be that for a certain multi, there is an associated VID (this is the one shown in Real Temp) and the one shown in CPUZ is actually the VCore?
Which is more recommended to use between Real Temp and Core Temp?

Thanks for the info. I'll try and see about this. If that is the case then should it be safe to assume that I should never set my VCore in UEFI greater than 1.5V if I consider that the "safe mark"?
