Does that change anything in terms of what I put in the bios settings?
Under XMP, it's set to its "optimal" settings so as far as ram timings and voltages you should be good to go, unless you plan on overclocking the ram too.
As for cpu voltages I also originally had x45 multplier with 1.22 Volts, which seems like a good starting point before dropping lower. Temps are very manageable below 1.3 Volts from what I experienced. Auto-tune had my voltage up to 1.4 which made me scream at my mobo.

Thanks Aaranu, I was afraid leaving many settings on Auto might affect it. So even when my cpu voltage is manually set, LLC still has effect?
I really wanted to do Offset mode, for the lower idle voltage but LLC really confused me. If I raise LLC to Ultra High, at light loads my voltage soars way beyond the necessary voltage for maximum load. This makes a positive offset very discouraging, yet on a negative offset the maximum load voltage may drop below necessary voltage. Then Extreme puts quite an overvoltage which isn't what I need.
I guess 1.9
1.19 volt isn't bad, so if I can't figure out the offset I really shouldn't mess with it.
1.9 volt? Lol.Edited by InterSpectra - 5/19/12 at 10:49pm
