Help explain/solve the oddness with my Z77A-G45 overclock

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I used the OC Genie II tool to OC my 3570K to 4.2ghz, and ran Prime95 on it... under load Vcore was fluctuating between 1.176 and 1.184 so I figured it was a pretty decent modest OC.

But when I stopped Prime95, the Vcore jumped to 1.24 while idling.

Can someone explain this to me... I'm not sure why the heck this would happen.

Someone in another forum suggested this:

"My guess: you're using constant voltage (or disabled SpeedStep and C-states) and not using load-line calibration. That's just Vdroop, and it's entirely expected. Switch to Offset voltage and re-enabled EIST and C-states if they've been disabled to bring the idle back down to ~1.05V"

However I'm pretty sure that MSI's Click Bios II does not allow for Offset voltage, so what would be my options?
