quick question about xfr,

after i flashed 1107 i disabled the skew because i read a post from elmor in this thread where he stated disabling it on x sku's, such as the 1700x, is fine as disable = amd default behavior.
with it disabled now its got me thinking. i wonder if that's the reason why i noticed a difference in my default average vcore with light loads with xfr enabled. its been staying under 1.4v's which has been refreshing. prior i was averaging 1.45v's before i flashed to 1107 and disabled the skew. i don't think gigabyte ever did any tweaks to the sense mi skew which is why i was noticing a big difference with xfr on my previous gaming 5 and the crosshair when it comes to light workloads.
i remember reading that amd stated the sensemi skew effects xfr behavior.
either that or its all been placebo for me and i don't know what i'm doing. i guess we can bother elmor again by asking if disabling the sensemi skew on x sku's like the 1800x is safe and what does it exactly do when disabled.Edited by muffins - 5/3/17 at 12:41pm
