Maybe that is referring to what is set in the BIOS though...

The advantage of running "balanced for 24/7 is you're not pushing lots of cpuv all the time - might lengthen the life of your processor thumb.gif

For benching you get a little better benchmark performance if you go "High performance. smile.gif

Bro - add your HWbot link to your profile. thumb.gif


sometimes, if W8-10 drop a 101 or 124 or fail to load windows, it will reset min proc state to 100% in the Active plan...

Thanks I will run the balanced profile then...do I need to change it to high performance when gaming?

sometimes depending on the game, you might need to increase the "minimum processor state - i need to run mine at a minimum of 30% or i get herky-jerkys in some of the COD games smile.gif

edit - i just leave it at 30% all the time - idle cpuv for me is 0.912v smile.gif

yeah min proc state @ 0% can cause alot of games to run like crap. . also by default on windows 7-10 min proc state for balanced has always been 5-10%.

Alright guys. So, I got all my OC settings setup. The only thing I changed was Core Clock, Core Voltage, Core Voltage Mode, and turned on XMP Profile. I know that I can bump up my Cache Clock (Ring Ratio) to match my Core Clock, but I have left it alone. I also left the FCLK alone. I know some of you recommend manually entering in XMP settings, but the XMP profile has worked just fine thus far.

Now...I would really really appreciate if one (or a few) of you could look at my BIOS settings below (screenshots) and let me know if there is anything else I should change.

Thanks guys!

Does 5% behave differently in those games? tongue.gif
You can always alt-tab out and switch to high perf mode.
Anyway - if windows registers a failed load (eg, auto cycles in to repair mode) it will set this to 100%. Many posts in these threads complaining that their idle voltage does not drop is for this reason. for some games like BF4, crysis, even CODAW, I just run high perf. thumb.gif
