This is the first time I've heard this.
It's generally recommended that you use fixed voltage
for OC'ing, and when you've found something you're comfortable with, you switch it to offset voltage
to gain the benefits of the power saving features. As for my recommendation for a good 24/7, everyday voltage, I'd go with anything less than 1.4v (although I, myself, am comfortable up to 1.45v
). I recommend 1.4v because that's what everyone else on this forum seems to recommend.
