Anyway, you're right that using an Offset Voltage results in the voltage dynamically adjusting based on the load. Is it doing that right now?
okay i found it and no its lowest is 1.4v so im guess thats not safe at all
im going to run some benchs real quick to see my max vol without hyper threading.
So for example if i need 1.504v, what would my offset be?
It's safe, but it's just safer using an Offset because then it's not at 1.504V 24/7. Edit:
Or 1.496V either. hehe
To calculate the Offset, I recommend viewing the VID in Real Temp 3.70:
To see the VID, click this button:
You may need to place load on the CPU in order to see your actual VID. So if it seems very low, like much lower than mine, then maybe run Prime95's Blend test for a few seconds.
Once you see it, find the difference between the VID and 1.504V.
So for example, my VID is 1.3561V, so I would need an Offset Voltage of +0.147 or +0.0148 because the difference is exactly 0.1479.
However, and this is important, the Load-Line Calibration setting must be set so that the vDroop is almost down to nothing. The more vDroop, the higher the Offset Voltage will need to be, and thus the more guesswork you'll have to do in finding the Offset Voltage. Edited by TwoCables - 6/22/12 at 8:49pm
