If you still throttle under load, if you have digi+ LLC, increase "CPU Current Capacity" above 100%. 130% does not throttle for me. It throttles because you are exceeding the TPW of the chip. you can either disable APM, or fiddle with Digi+.
In before, voltages are not final on my pics. I'm still poking.
also it does Throttle (under load only with apm enabled ) me down to 3.4 ghz which is BELOW stock setting of 4.0 which it would do on all stock settings or overclocked ( with apm enabled ) the moment my chip hits around 40c-42c
it does not Downclock my cpu with cnq ( and lower volts ) with all aforementioned "fixes"
( windows cpu power 5-100% vs only 100%, cnq c1e c6 and apm( or w.e the abbreviations are) and anything else mentioned in post, cnq only seems to work with turbo enabled, which i would argue that is actually turbo working. and using offset vs manual on voltage setting)
edit i may of used enable vs auto i will go test that now .
without apm enabled i can do 4.7 or 4.8 ghz all day long at 100% pc load with NO PROBLEMS ( temps or throttling)
w00t does not throttle me when apm is on auto and not enabled
however cnq still does nata..... /cry
although vcore still isnt fluctuating i now have enabled to auto cpu slide spectrum pcie slide spectrum and epu power saving mode
now Cnq is working.... ill play later to see which settings helped and if changing other settings will help lower voltage ...
at 100% load cpu is not throttling and is ramping up to full speed... yay !!
edit again.... although hwinfo is not seeing the voltages changing aisuite is and so is coretemp ( core temp is off though due to it not reading the asus digi power settings core temp reads 1.375 ( stock ) at load vs the 1.4-1.475 other monitoring programs see.... will still test other settings i changed to see which did help ( i know epu power savings did it but i dont know if that is dependent on the other settings changed )
hope this helps others.
and thanks for everyones help !!!
edit couldnt wait it was epu power saving mode + offset mode
prime testing now. it does down clock and lower vcore and then goto my settings as needed w00t now i can save some cash on energy bill!!!Edited by Mega Man - 3/18/13 at 8:38pm
