How do i go about setting the offset?
Ok you got that probably very close, before proceeding make sure games and applications don't crash it. I was stable using Aida64 but crashed when trying to load certain programs and games. If all goes well lets move on to using Offsets.
Ok her is a quick run-threw Using my preferred settings. Most of this will be under Advanced Voltage Control.
Under 3D Power Control
PWM Phase control - EXM Perf (my personal preference is performance)
Vcore Voltage response - Fast (my personal preference is performance)
Vcore LLC - Extreme (less Vdroop from my findings)
Under CPU Core Voltage Control
CPU Vcore - Normal (this is for using offset voltage, you will notice the box under this DVID
will now highlight for adjustment. Do not do anything yet, you need to find out where your Voltage is at before doing this)
Save you bios setting and restart.
Now you will have to load into windows and run P95 and see where your voltage is at under full load, lets say at full load you are at 1.33, that means you will need +.020 DVID, 1.33 +.020 = 1.35. Restart go in bios and put the DVID offset in save restart and rerun P95 until you are good. Sometime it goes the other way, if you follow this you should have it pretty easy.
Edit: IBT is Intel Burn Test , and like posted before if you cant boot with no DVID up it until you boot into windows.
Also you can lower your CPU PLL to try to lower the temps a tad. I personally am running that at 1.65 volts but I think that is the lowest I would go.Edited by DrAcK - 4/30/13 at 4:03pm
