Thanks for the input. Would changing the offset to "-" rather than "+" help? Currently I don't have my voltage fixed it's on 'auto'. Voltage is fluctuating with the demands.
Some readings after playing Crysis 2 highest settings and these were my CPU readings in OCCT. However it wasn't stressed enough as usage is low.
Looks like my min value is 1.38v in idle and up to 1.46v full boat.
I don't bench my CPU and I'm not keen on putting it through a stress test. What is a good bench test I can use to put my CPU through?
