Bad chip, below average chip , or am I doing something wrong - Page 5

Ah so i should go from -0.045 to -0.025? ill try it when i get home. just a little confused as how that lowers my load vcore. ill trust you though

You just have to experiment with it and be patient -- over time, you'll get a feel for how your own CPU behaves, and you'll find an approach that works best for you. Good luck.

How does going from -0.045 to 0.025 lower load. core though?

I'll know how to answer that when you tell me where the -0.045 came from originally -- I think that that was before I entered the thread.

My math may have been off a little, though -- I was looking more at your idle voltage at first, trying to get that to around 1V or slightly under, because that's where I idle at (0.992V). I figured that if you could idle there and be stable, you could just accept what it got you for Vcore when loaded. Then when you gave the results for -0.025V, I wanted to see what would happen if you went just one click lower.

I was assuming that you were going from having no offset at all, and applying -0.025V.

made this post elsewhere, trying to explain how to set up offset,

Ah i should clarify then, with the offset at -0.045 , (what ive been using) my load voltage is 1.308 load and ranges on idle around 1.07-1.1x . Early you mention -offsets where bad, what did you mean

that helped but i cant get to the same voltage as with fixed as my shockwave applications constanly fail and my system becomes unstable

they fail when you watch vid's etc, and in your browser(chrome)?

the fixed vcore is still the way to go, if you want to find your offset voltage,
if you cant get fixed vcore to run, you will have the same instability when you use offset later,
the shockwave could just be a application/software error, maybe not related to the oc

its def a stabilty issue, adding a few volts solves the issue. lots of programs give me trouble too even though prime runs fine.

Also my VID is higher them my Vcore, so does the math still work?
let me give you a run down of my Bios settings again, so you can double check:

Multiplier : 43

Base Clock : 100.00

Vcore : Normal

Offset ( DVID) : - 0.040 ( I had originally said -0.045 but a got a couple of in game crashes even after testing with prime, -0.040 seems to be a sweet spot )

PLL : Auto/1.80

LLC : High

Power Saving Settings : AUTO

Load VCore ( CPU-Z) : 1.308

IDLE VCORE : 1.056+


(FIXED VOLTAGE)
Multiplier : 43

Base Clock : 100.00

Vcore : 1.27

PLL : Auto

LLC : Turbo

Power Saving : OFF

Load VCORE : 1.272

Idle VCORE : 1.272


I can change the LLC for the offset however if I change it to turbo with a -0.045 offset it hits a higher Load VCore so I normally have to increase the offset to -0.055 or higher. I cant get it lower then 1.308 on any LLC + Offset setting without running into software stability issues, Lockups and Bsods.
