"Second, You OC and want the chip to be running in power saving mode more often? Are you idling 24/7?"
Ha, well not idle 24/7 but I spend a lot of time surfing web etc, I hardly see the point of having extra heat/power consumption if I can help it.

I still have the problem with the USB staying powered up when system is off, also the led's on my 970 strix stay powered on all the time. I have disabled fast boot and anything associated in windows power settings. I know the motherboard has a fast charge thingy for charging phone but I can't seem to find an option in bios to disable it. The problem I have is a Geek Out 1000 usb DAC that has a class A amp and runs hot, it stays powered up even when PC is shut down which is just a waste of cash!

Enable ErP in your BIOS. Don't exactly remember where it's located, check your manual if you can't find it.

Well there we go. i'm practically done for now with my OC adventures on this wonderful Sabertooth.

Testing 1.200V, 43x100 now, it's been rock solid (my rock solid definition includes being able to handle prime95 NEW version, with the small FFTs, basically, the most intense possible torture test known at this point) and I'm easing the voltage down on it now. I had it at 4.5 but P95 put an end to such high clocks. mad.gif

I think it's cheating to "skip" newer prime95 just to coddle your haswell/skylake/whatever. If the prime95 people can write software that melts your chip, then so can anybody else...

But I can see the motivation for it among overclockers, honestly. Heck it cost me like 200Mhz.

Can someone give me their settings to have the voltage drop while idling and going back up when performing ? Idk what I did but while I was stress testing it said my cpu voltage was at 1.5 when i had it at 1.3. When I saw that number I just stopped the stress test and shut down the pc.

Hi guys , does anybody know where I might be able to purchase a spare set of armor for my X99 , I want to paint it , but also want to keep an original set incase I want to sell .

Post your settings. It seems like EIST is enabled.

I deleted my settings cuz I thought if I kept them it would destroy components, what I had tho was 1.3 core 4.3 ghz core, 100bclk,43 multiplier, load line was lvl 7, Enabled somethings i followed in a guide, RAM was XMP 2400mhz offset adaptive voltage I also took from a guide, don't remember the settings now, I got a bunch of settings from a guide then Stress tested. everything was fine

Then I decided to another one but a long stress test then I noticed voltage shooting up to 1.5.

In case you are not aware, you can save screenshots of the BIOS Pages by using a FAT32 formatted Flash Drive and Hitting F12 on the BIOS Pages.

Anyway, the setting you would be looking should be Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology under Advanced\CPU Configuration\CPU Power Management. DISABLE that Option when OC'ing.

1.3 is a tad too much for 4.3 IMO.

1.5 vCore? Haven't you fried your CPU already>

I know its not friendly for the power bill, but I might suggest since you done splurge on the hardware you might as well OC it the proper way. Like I did today. I switched Turbo and EIST off, and it's very possible I won the silicon lottery here with mine at 1.22v, 45x100 and stable (my D15 doesnt have enough cooling capacity to handle Prime95, but other benches are stable).

I had lots of trouble messing around with settings even at 41 multiplier with adaptive vcore offset and whatnot. Wouldn't stay stable at all. I switched EIST/Turbo off, and changed some power phase settings or something like that to "Optimized", some other simple stuff (sorry I'm really bad at remembering the names) and this CPU/mobo had no problems ramping up to 4.5, and it stays very cool idling even at this blistering clock speed. thumb.gif

I found the setting to tuen off usb charging, it was in the advanced tab under arp I think, allow c states. the manual points to it when explaining usb charge plus.
I have reset my overclocks for now, I had a corsair carbide 400r case which kept everything nice and cool but I swapped it out for a phantek evolv which doesn't! it looks the part though.
