If i set my rig to offset at 4.2ghz my cpu goes up to 1.34v if i use a negative setting to bring it down to say 1.25 volt i get a idle voltage of 0.850v is there something iam doing wrong ?
i know, offset can be a bit confusing at first, it was for me anyways..lol
let me give it a try to explain how to, in short
1. set the oc you want in bios, 4.2 or higher if you like and if temps permit, use fixed vcore
, no offset
2. you have to find your stable oc vcore first, test it..otherwise just using offset will prolly crash anyways..
3. boot to windows, open, core temp, real temp, cpu-z, use ibt/prime/aida64 to load your chip 100% load,
4. run one of the "load" programs, watch the VID in core temp, note the VID
5. do the math, vcore - vid = offset
6. back to bios, plug in the offset from the calculation above
7. reboot, enjoy, you did it ..lol, run some more stability programs
this is a example
VID sometimes jumps a bit, as you can see in the note, take the vid that you see most of the time,
this is not the math i showed you above, i already knew my vcore, and only did some other tests at that time,
with using little vdroop, and no vdroop(LLC settings) etc, but you get what i mean i hope..
cpu-z doesnt always show the correct voltages, so keep in mind the vcore you set in the bios for the math
hope this helps Edited by VonDutch - 1/17/13 at 8:14am
