so my Offset will be +0.0441v since in this case my Bios Voltage value is Bigger than my VID so it will be positive
thats how i set up my Offset....hope this helps
Ok I see what you mean so mine is reading as this:
@ 4.4ghz Core Temp reads VID = 1.3160v - 1.3210v
Cpu - Z reads core voltage @ 1.272v - 1.280v.
So it seems that I'm actually running a lower voltage then VID on prime95. My Offset is sitting at -0.020v. Should I leve it be or do something with my Offset VCore? I was just trying to get it OC to around 4.4ghz - 4.5ghz Offset mode at the lowest possible stable Vcore I could use for obvious reason, lower temps less strain the works. Just doesn't seem when I lower my offset Vcore it really changes the prime vcore that much if any at all. Maybe I should lower it to -0.025v and see what happens with the nuimbers?EDIT
Ok so I dropped it down another notch to Offset of -0.025v. Core Temp VID did not change from before. Cpu-z Showed 1.272v - 1.264v. It never went up to 1.280v on this prime run. So I'm assuming the lower offset voltage is doing its job then? It dropped down to 1.264v at times with the previous offset but mainely stuck @ 1.272v - 1.280v. Never went to 1.280v this prime95 run. Max temps went down a notch to it seems. My max temp on a single core was 75c running 2 full cycles of prime95. Seems good. But I still think I can go much lower voltage wise @ 4.4ghz and get even better temps and what have you.Edited by zakk - 6/26/13 at 9:07am
