I have been going crazy the past month over this issue so i'll start from the top.

First, I purchased a P9X79 which had issues with buzzing noises coming from the board whenever I moved my mouse or at certain times when data was being read/copied. I found out this was an issue with having C1E enabled. I turned it off and it went away. Problem is I need C1E on so that my CPU downclocks. I decided to live with the noise until I could get a new board.

So, today I got a P9X79 Pro and gues what... same issue. It's driving me insane. What is going on here? And a new issue arose with the new board. On the P9X79 non-Pro I had my CPU at 4GHz with an offset of -0.07 which resulted in a load voltage of 1.2v. Now with those same settings on the new board, the load voltage is 1.344v.

Are there any settings in the BIOS that affect how the CPU voltage is being read? Why does the voltage go up on its own when the multiplier is change? The cpu will do 4GHz at stock volts fine on manual but with offset I have to leave it 1.2 because if I offset too much the idle volts are too low. This has been driving me crazy. Is there a setting I can change where the CPU keeps its regular VID with Offset so that is a constant 1.128v and I can just offset from there using a + instead of having to use - when I increase the multiplier which increases the vcore?


Any help is greatly appreciated. Especially with the noise issue because I just spent $300 on a new board and its doing the exact same thing the old one is and is giving me another issue now ...
