Skylake Overclocking Guide [With Statistics] - Page 798

post #7971 of 11368
I have a new CPU which is looking good. Doing y-cruncher 5B @ 4.9GHz with 1.377v.

Usually if passing y-cruncher 5B all other stress tests pass too.

Will update as soon as I've run the required long-ass tests biggrin.gif

I'm getting a bit confused now so I would simply like to ask this.

Can I somehow tweak my BIOS settings so that my CPU is not always at 1.24V @ 4.5ghz? I would like it to throttle down when it's full power is not needed, both in the core and voltage.

Thank you.

I don't think there is a way at such a low voltage. If you use a negative offset, your idle voltage is going to be too low.

Try using 1.37V in additional turbo voltage under adaptive instead of 1.24V, and see if your voltage drops to ~0.8V at idle. If it does, keep dropping your voltage down from 1.37V until it stops working.

That didn't work, all it did was spike my voltage to 1.6.

It seems the only way for the cpu to throttle down is to not use manual voltage settings and also to use balanced power mode in windows.

As soon as I applied any manual overclock, regardless of whether I was in balanced or high performace mode in windows, the CPU would just not throttle down.

The most I was able to achieve is a clock throttle down but never a voltage...

I guess this function is in fact broken. Hopefully ASUS fixes it.

Thank you for your efforts.

4.5 ghz at 1.24V constant isn't bad and my temps are good, 30 idle (summer here now) and under 50 most of the time when gaming...Witcher 3 is more demanding than Tomb Raider (new one)

I don't see how that's possible with LLC 5. You might need to RMA that board.

Do you have all the C states set to Enabled? I have no problems either with Adaptive or low idle vcore with my Hero.
Depending on how/which C states are enabled (going from memory here...) your idle vcore could be as low as .016v or only as low as about 0.7V.
I have all C states enabled and my vcore goes as low as 0.16.... the sensor has a .016v resolution so all vcore readings will be multiples of that.

I don't think I do no...

Also, should I be enabling EPU and SpeedStep along with C states?

Leave those on default settings.

So..

Enhanced C State - Enabled
CPU C3 Report - Enabled
CPU C6 Report - Enabled
" C7 " - Enabled
" C8 " - ?
Package C State Limit - Auto

and then apply my adaptive mode settings?

Yes...although I have the last setting on Enabled, I think. But try and see what you get.

Well I'll be damned! You did it coach!

Thanks so much!
