Feel free to redirect me to the other threads if this isn't the right place, but I'll just ask here since I thought of it based on what you wrote.
Why is there any connection between which strap you choose and the ability to use adaptive voltage? Is there some design reason for that?
Speaking of adaptive voltage, I'm a little baffled by the UEFI display for setting that up. Is this right: the first setting is the basic offset for all times other than full load or turbo, and the extra setting is an additional offset that will be added when the cpu is at full load or in turbo mode? Does that get applied per core or across the board?
What I would have hoped for is, I boot into UEFI settings, I go to the cpu voltage area, and I would see a display of what voltage the cpu will be given if I don't change the current setting. Instead we don't have access to that information (except by repeated testing of similar or identical situations and keeping extensive notes on hand). What you see when you're looking at the UEFI settings display is just the voltage the cores are getting right now while you're in that settings screen, which has little to do with what it will be given under load later. So how are you supposed to set this stuff, just by keeping really detailed notes and then just changing a tiny bit at a time?
I'm used to the X58 era, where the BIOS shows you what the default will be, then you can work off of that default number and add some to it. Of course I realize adaptive is even better than offset, but I thought we would be shown the base we're working from instead of just being sort of up-in-the-air? Maybe I'm missing something.
