6700k Stock Voltage Help

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I have a 6700k and it runs at a stock voltage of 1.328v with my Maximus VIII hero. I don't want to overclock for the time being so I think that 1.328v is a bit too much.

after reading I've decided to use adaptive voltage as that down volts the CPU when it's idling, but how do I set it?

It has an offset sign which can be - or +
And max turbo voltage: which I can set.

I would appreciate any help as I don't wanna brick my motherboard.

Thanks.

You are most likely going to brick the CPU first before the motherboard if anything goes wrong. It's pretty hard to do so anyway with overclocking unless you crank the CPU voltage above 1.4V for a long period of time or your CPU overheats a lot.

The CPU adaptive voltage uses a offset setting with + and -. The + is to have a offset that increases from the Stock VID. The - is basically the opposite. Decreases from stock VID.

To work out your stock VID you disable your Intel Enhanced Speedstep Technology, Intel C-states and run on a auto CPU voltage. Then use a CPU stress testing program and note down the CPU Voltage on load. This will basically be your stock VID. For example you find your stock VID is 1.328v. To decrease this CPU voltage with adaptive voltage to 1.30v you will need to use a - offset with a value of 0.028v (It will in result be around -0.028v lower). Same applies to + offset if you want to increase the CPU voltage from the VID.

How does this look?
For some reason cpuz is showing a max of 1.19v ? Is it reporting incorrectly ?

Anyone?

Yes, it is correct (well at worse fine). The CPU voltage will vary due to Vdroop which can be tweaked using the CPU voltage manual or offset and/or LLC (Load Line Calibration). The BIOS settings you are on right now is okay to use. It's probably rounding off somewhat as 1.184v as 1.19v CPU voltage reading.

Yes those are exactly the readings I'm getting. But is 1.19 the true voltage or is it what I set in the bios.

1.19 is the true voltage. The bios one is the desired CPU voltage. There will be a slight variance to the actual CPU voltage as said in my previous post(s).
