Gigabyte DVID Doesn't Idle Properly

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to get DVID to work on my Gigabyte M5 Sniper mobo. I've already overclocked my 4770k to 4.5GHz at 1.3V and it's stable, so now I'd like to make it so this voltage isn't constant. I know that I need to set VCore to Normal, add an offset, and enable C1E, C3, C6/C7, and CPU EIST, but this still just acts like a static voltage. The cpu will maintain static frequency and voltage no matter if under 100% load or idling, even with these settings. I feel that I've tried almost all combinations of these settings and Turbo Boost being enabled/disabled/auto, but nothing changes this. If anything, these settings just cause a wider range of temps under load.

What am I missing? or, is DVID even worth it?

Have you tried just typing in a manual voltage? For some reason on my i7 4790K + Z97X-UD5H-BK the voltage lowers like usual pretty well, like using the CPU on stock.

Check if you're using the high performance windows power plan profile? If you are you will need to set it to balance for the power saving settings to work.

Of course. I had it on performance favored power. Switching back to balanced solved the problem.

Thanks!
