With my LLC on low, and a vcore offset of 0 I'm getting 1.344 to 1.356 vcore which is about .01 to .02 more than i want but if i set my offset to even -0.01 my system wont POST. So far my temps at this vcore are maxing in the mid 80's which is up a little from when my vcore was fixed at 1.33 but it is a few degrees hotter today so there is likely minimal temperature difference. I guess i could just leave the vcore here... but the goal of going dynamic is to lower CPU wear isn't it?
In the intro it is mentioned that disabling C3/C6 may have negative impact on SSD's there is no source cited or explanation given - anyone have a link that goes into some detail on this?Another question - I cant run a custom prime95 at 1344K... prime says it's "Beginning a continuous self-test" and it takes 100% CPU, no ram, and never actually starts a test - what the hell?
EDIT: this was version 25... it works with version 27 Warning: BIOS screen shots (Click to show)
For 4.7 with HT on ,considering your voltage i would do higher LLC ,don't hesitate with higher LLC it will allow you to set your voltage correctly,
set Phase to Performance and you don't want to have "0" offset value ..you want "+[...]" (try High LLC and value +110 ...just wild guess here=> adjust it to your liking),Disable Turbo
P.S.sorry for the lack of updates ,little preoccupied (busy) hopefully will have some time this weekend or upcoming days and will update OP as some of my settings have change (BF3 is the true test on this chips) and will do 5.0 Edited by coolhandluke41 - 6/1/12 at 7:29pm
