I just set SOC to 1.1 volts, LLC to level 2, Vcore to offset (auto), P-states all on auto in bios, C-states to enable, then rebooted. Opened Zenstates up and set P0 to 39.5 and 1.4 volts. Left the P1 and P2 states at the Zenstates default, and that was it.
Rebooted and Voila! Downclocks just as it should, and the temps under stress were fine for 24/7 use (Not that it will ever be run at stress testing 24/7).
Elmor really did a fantastic job with this.
Happy to see you got it working! I went back to square one and just tested idle Vcore with everything in the bios at Auto. Vcore dropped just like it's supposed to so I know there isn't anything interfering.
Then, I tried exactly
what you did and my result was completely different and reverted to what I've been struggling with the entire time. Vcore in the C6H section of HWinfo stays at my P0 volts 99% of the time. I noticed it drop to between .6v &.9v a couple times, but only for a second before jumping back up to the P0 value. Shouldn't it be at idle Vcore all the time?
Should I just.. trust that the idle voltage is what I set for P2? It's bothering me that I'm not seeing the correct values being reported, but at this stage, I just feel like I'm slowly losing my mind and should move on.
All @ Auto (except ram, I guess):
Your bios settings (SOC to 1.1 volts, LLC to level 2, Vcore to offset (auto), P-states all on auto in bios, C-states to enable), default ram speed, with my P0 set in ZenStates and default P1/2:
