Mid load Higher voltage than High Load?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Mhhh... now this is a bit mysterious for me. I've clock up to 4.8Ghz at 1.408 to 1.416v peak on Primt95 test and it is very stable after the long test. During gaming session or other mid load application. My CPU runs at 4.8Ghz but the voltage spike up to 1.448v on mid load, high load goes down to 1.416v.

 

Why is that?

 

Off-set voltage overclocking + LLC at Medium, Capability: 120%.

 

I don't think it is something being throttled. CinebenchR11 scored 14.03. Run as expected when running at 4.8Ghz at ~1.416v

Depends what you set cpu vcore in bios at. It should work out that say you set 1.400 in bios, you might see 1.416v in windows at idle, then at full load it drops to 1.400. This is what you should aim to get.

Raise LLC, that's just droop, perfectly normal.
