Just tried everything you had shown but the voltage still stays at 1.208v on idle.

What is your CPU usage? If there is anything going on then windows will not signal for C-states. Here is a CPU-Z I took right now at idle. I am also using auto voltage, not manual, although it worked the same for me when I had it on manual. Did you update to the latest BIOS?

Yeah on latest bios, after sitting idle for about 5 minutes the voltage was still at 1.208v multi drops to 16x. Only on auto the voltage drops for me.

Interesting, maybe a bug with the latest BIOS then? I'm still using the one my board shipped with.

I'll flip the switch and try it in a bit. GW2 time.

What are considered useful board features & bios options vary for different individuals & particular goals.

I'm not saying asrock makes better overclocking boards, I just said that my friends $100 asrock board supports offset overclocking. I prefer Asus motherboards thats why I'm using the sabertooth.

I also think that the Your Asrock statement is correct - the new board designed by Nick Shih is their best board to date ( hes a friend and I don't know if he sleeps lol - works hard and plays D3 insanely well tongue.gif) but I did have a daily runner for about 5 months or so on the z68 extreme3gen3 - at about 115usd - yes you can OC, but it is Not an overclocking board - I spent a full day fighting the BIOS when it threw fits - absolutely maddening times but was able to be ok for a while when it behaved.
Point being that there is no substitute for a well made and properly performing piece of HW.

It seems like offset overclocking is something very technical and hard to understand for you, I find it very easy to do and can set the offset to any specific load voltage I want. Its just like regular overclocking at Load, but at idle the voltage/temps drop and that's what makes it real nice.

Getting started with mine today...

 

 

 

 

 Board feels great so far. Solid results with air so far. Things get cold later.

Wait about this offset talk, if I SET my clocks to a certain speed to OC, if I'm idle and my voltage drops~ would that not hang my rig?

No because your frequency will drop. Offset overclocking is a must imo. Temperatures are not an issue, but the small power savings are nice. And it will help extend the life of our chips.

It doesn't work for me either when using manual so I'm hoping this gets fixed in a bios update.
