hey, thanks for replying

for the bolded - uh, well, I think so ? I mean how do you even test for idle stability ? the PC booted and hasn't BSODed so far, so there's that .. if it BSODs while browsing or watching a film then ofc I'll up the voltage a bit, but so far so good .. idle Vcore (when it's 1600 MHz) is ~0.76V or so I think, maybe a bit more .. and anyway - that much negative voltage offset is the only way to achieve what I'm trying to do, isn't it ? Which is to get a stable 4200 at the lowest possible Vcore


it's the turbo voltage that I've been trying to get lower then Auto and unsucessful so far .. so this basically means I'm stuck @ ~1.12-1.13V for 4200 ? Nothing more can be done here ?


as for the P95 error - I'll run it again tonight, if there's another error or other problem then I'll throw in a +0.004V turbo Vcore

If you select the "per core" option and stick them all with x42 instead of using "auto" or "all core" turbo voltage can be done away with all together leaving you to govern voltage (imo) more tight with just offset and LLC.

there is a difference between selecting "per core" and giving all of them x42 and just using all core x42 ? Isn't it the same thing ?

And i'm already not using any turbo offsets atm
post #8224 of 8224
No there is not a difference, Just select All Core and leave them at 42.

Due to the low multiplier, you will most likely not be using Additional turbo voltage. You will use Turbo voltage more often when stabilizing a higher multiplier but for now offset should provide you with a low idle vcore and a stable full load vcore.
