can someone please tell me what I should set v core voltage mode to

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Im confused with this setting, and im not sure what it does exactly.

I like to play FPS games so i want this PC to be fast

Currently I have multi core enhancement enabled, and I have OC CPU Fixed mode on. What should I do with V Core voltage mode? Will it affect performance if I choose the wrong option?

multi core Enabled
OC Fixed mode ON
V core voltage adaptive

^^^^ is that the best way to go? I just want performance. I suck at overclocking FYI

asrock z87 killer
intel 4790k
windows 8.1

thanks

You have two options, use the auto OC provided by either the BIOS or the auto OC software provided by asrock if they have one for your motherboard.

The other option which you may not like is overclocking it manually which is far better in my experience by using a overclocking guide like this one:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1411077/haswell-overclocking-guide-with-statistics#

The CPU Core Voltage modes are used to fine tune your CPU voltage with different kinds of profile. The three most common ones are:

- Manual (Manual, static set core voltage, can be influenced by Intel C-States like C1E, C3, C6/C7, Enhanced Intel Speedstep Technology to have a lower than desired CPU voltage on idle)

- Adaptive (The CPU voltage will ramp up on load and go down on idle, increasing the core multiplier will have an impact on CPU voltage by increasing it proportionately.

- Offset (This is used for when you want to add an offset to the VID (The CPU voltage requested by the CPU which is then read by the motherboard). The motherboard decides how much CPU voltage the CPU gets and not the CPU itself when offset is used. Basically you have either a + or - offset. Minus offset is used when you want the actual CPU voltage to be lower than the VID. A positive offset is used when you want to increase the CPU voltage higher than the CPU VID.

Now the VID varies depending on load and you can find out your stock VID by disabling all power saving settings in BIOS such as EIST, Intel C-States and running the windows power plan in high performance mode. You can check if this is active via Control Panel > Power Options > High Performance.

Once you got it all set to find VID use a program like HWMonitor, HWinfo64 or CPU-Z to find out what the CPU voltage is at on load. Once you find that out that is your stock reported VID read by the motherboard from the CPU.
