If I understand correctly when I do offset my voltage Will go down at idle and go up at load. Lets say I need 1.250 for stability then il want my offset voltage to hit 1.250 at load in CPUz correct?
Il check prime 95 when I'm home. I left it stress testing. Under what temps should I ideally be staying under?
Yeah that's not really that good if you are at 1.27 at idle, it uses more energy to do nothing basically and i can see you are on manual. Change to offset and try a .005 decrease to see where the voltage is loading at, if you get a blue screen right away then change to and INCREASE this time +.005, if you blue screen again raise to +.01 again until you can boot up to windows and see what the load is at. When you see that voltgae you can do the math and add how ever less or more voltage on the offset you need to reach the 1.250. For example you put in -.005 for the offset, you boot up and it bluescreens, then you go back and change to +.005 and then it works, go to prime 95, go check what it is loading at. For example it says 1.21v at load, that means it was +.005v up from the base of 1.205v or whatever (just an example). I always do a -.005 first decrease on offset to be safe and see if i can boot up to windows, if i do i will check for what the load is at, if it bsods, I increase to +.005, If the voltage is too high when you are at -.005 decrease, do the math and try to get to your 1.25v. Remember this is just an example, all chips and motherboards will do different settings.
