At idle, my CPU is running at 28 C° and on load I've see it go up to around 48 C°. So is it okay for my core voltage to stay at 1.5v since my temps are steady? I've tried lowering the voltage with my bios, but It's really fishy with me. Sometimes I'll raise the offset set [ - ] to around .5 and it will drop to like 1.47, then sometimes I'll put the offset set [ - ] to .56250 and it will go up? Idk

Either you have a pretty poor binned CPU that needs a LOT of voltage just for an average overclocks like that, or it could be just in need of fine tuning the offsets and what not. Try giving the CPU/NB a tiny, tiny bump on the voltage. Some people have found that allowed for better overclocks.

EDIT: Also best to try get your CPU-NB to around 3000mhz (1.25-1.3V would seem fine for that) for the absolute best performance increase in the desktop and games.

Yeah I am using BIOS, but was just trying the Overdrive for fun. I got it stable at 3.7 GHz 210 @ 17.5x, 1.425v 35°C at Full load...
Gonna just leave it there I guess... Idk how to tinker with it
