Strange offset voltage depth, huge negative value needed. NO extra LLC - Page 2

post #11 of 15
I guess I'm missing what the problem is then. You have a good voltage there with an offset of -0.01, so that all sounds fine. Was your concern just that it was using 1.4V in Auto?

No my concern was using a negative offset, I read many tutorials and forums stating they actually used an increase voltage offset and that negative is not good because it also offsets idle. I haven't seen or heard about negative offset voltages being a normal thing to get voltage or temps where you need it.

Oh. Negative offsets are less common than positive, simply because most chips need more volts and not less, but there is nothing wrong with using a negative offset as long as it isn't so large that it causes idle instability. It sounds like yours is fine though, so I wouldn't worry about it.

Well if you think about it, What is weird it my voltage is high by not offsetting it. I know that my chip @4.2 is stable about 1.25, I used the negative 0.010 to get it to about 1.28. This is due to the fact it is roughly higher or about 1.3 without any offset, and why use a higher voltage if its not needed? i want my temps low as possible. So this is why I am using negative offset, and it is stable, i just could go even further I guess, but like you said I don't get why I am using negative when most use positive. I get what it does and how it does it, I don't know why I need negative offset, and most need positive, Is my chip not good?

It just means that your chip has a very high (or conservative) VID. Intel laods the VID table in the chip based on something (I have no idea what testing they do) and for whatever reason your chip can run at a lower voltage than Intel thought it could. I'd say that means you have a good chip, but it's also possible that your chip's high VID means it has low top-end overclocking ability. The required voltage often ramps up rather quickly at some point, and maybe your chip hits that point earlier than others, which is why it has a high VID, but it also why you can run at normal voltages at lower speeds. That's just speculation though.
