Asus Z77 Series Information Thread (drivers, BIOSes, overclocking, reviews) **UPDATED 4/22** - Page 30

post #291 of 1288
OK so I think I have figured out my voltage using offset I'm using a 0.20 offset with CPU LLC at high.

I'm getting 1.040 idle voltage and 1.272 load to keep me stable. Yes when I was using manual voltage I only needed 1.256 voltage at 4.4ghz, but now my idle voltage is lower than with manual and my temperatures are close to the same under load. Prime95 has been running alittle over 3 hours now highest temp is 74c.

I think I will keep this overclock as is with offset voltage.

Thanks for the driver list, most of mine were out of date thanks to ASUS's website...

We can use the drivers on the 1st page rather than using the ones from Asus website?>

Anyone with the Z77-V board see a difference between BIOS 0906 and the newest one?

Maybe it's a placebo effect, but I'm seeing a bit faster POST with BIOS 1015 than 0906.

I wasn't able to get a stable 4.4 (BSOD no matter the voltage) on the factory bios, got 4.4 at 1.14v with 1015(?). Also my fan profile wasn't being loaded correctly at boot and the bios update fixed it.

Using lower LLC can actually help you have a lower idle and lower "medium" load voltage, at least from my experience. Here are the two settings I have been playing with:

4.5GHz
Offset +0.06V
LLC off
Everything else auto
0.982V idle
1.2V 100% load (LinX/Prime95 small FFT)
1.248V medium load (BF3, Diablo 3 etc.)

or

4.5GHz
Offset +0.04V
LLC medium (25%)
Everything else auto
0.976V idle
1.2V 100% load (LinX/Prime95 small FFT)
1.224V medium load (BF3, Diablo 3 etc.)

So in my case, using a slightly lower offset with a small level of LLC is better overall than a higher offset and no LLC. Temps are the same within a degree or two, tested Prime95 (27.7 with AVX) for 8 hours (small FFT) and 5 runs of LinX (latest w/ AVX) with 14.5GB RAM allocated.

You have the -v Pro (sig), BIOS seems to be a little different for the -V.
I'm on 0906 for the -V right now, and not had any problems. Though the board is so new an update is probably worth the flash.
