I've been trying to get a proper overclock for a while now but I'm unable to do so. I'm sure someone must know what to do on here.
When stresstesting, the vcore actually drops below the manual set voltage (vdrop/vdroop - yes I know) but what the issue here is that the voltage actually goes higher when it's IDLE
The pictures should explain it better: 30mins stresstest
As you can see - for some reason, even though the voltage is set to adaptive it still hovers around 1.3V when idle. Isn't it suppose to be the other way around? Higher voltage when stresstesting and chilling below < 1V when idle?
CPU: i5-6600K @ 4.4GHz w/ Kraken x61
MOBO: MSI Z170 KRAIT GAMING
RAM: 16GB Kingston HyperX FURY Black
PSU: 650W eVGA SuperNOVA G2
CPU Ratio: 44
Ring Ratio: 44
Vcore: Manual -> 1.28V
Mode: Adaptive + Offset (+0.02)
If someone could point me to the right direction here I'd appreciate it a lot. Is it a setting I screwed up or simply missed? Or is my mobo just superbad?
Thanks in advance!
