vCore offset mode - need help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am running 44x with vCore offset mode: -0.095 (yes minus value). Idles around 30C with .90v and stress (Intel Burn Test) around 74C with vCore fluctuating around 1.26 - 1.30. Is it OK? I believe the offset negative value is a bit higher?? but I was trying to lower it to under volt when idle to reduce heat.

I found my 44x sweet spot at 1.29v manual, and then tried with offset mode. A smaller negative offset value (say -0.010) giving very high voltage spikes (around 1.38 for 44x!) so I decided to go lower and see... I don't see any BSOD in both stress and idle. Is there any problem with this very low ngative offset??

No one OC'd with offset values! - need some help.

Please wait 24hours before bumping your thread smile.gif

There is nothing wrong with the negative value if that is what you need for stability. Only thing you may have to worry about is IDLE bsod, that's when the LLC level is too high and the idle voltage is too low. I would probably recommend that you increase the LLC level to the next level and increase the offset value to achieve the same load voltage you require.

Hope that helps. thumb.gif
