I read my core voltage with HWmonitor. What do you use to read your peak voltage while stress testing?

i use HWmonitor as well along with the aida64 panels

That is good. Do you use dynamic or offset to set the Vcore?

ah, i think it's a fixed voltage

Dose your core voltage go down at idle? What do you use for setting vcore, Is CPU Core/Cache voltage set on Auto?

nope, doesn't go down, just noticed it after you asked, the only thing i messed with was the vcore voltage and set it to manual 1.265.
post #57 of 203
He's asking about adaptive (dynamic), offset and manual for VID vcore voltage setting. Where you set your vcore in the bios, there should be an option for what method (usually right above the value itself).

If you're doing manual you're doing it right anyway. Don't use adaptive/dynamic.

ah yeah, i googled it and did some reading some post on diff forums say that having a constant volt can run down the cpu faster, not sure if thats true.
post #59 of 203
I don't see how that can be true. Every processor has a maximum safe voltage so running anything below that is perfectly safe. You would only have to worry about surges if you're close to the limit. Degradation takes a while to happen anyway. It's not like running your processor for an hour 0.05 V too high will kill it that much quicker.

good, because i was starting to think maybe i messed up by having a fixed voltage.
