That worked, and I'm now at 3.9Ghz at 1.294V (using offset +0.200 with auto vcore)
Now I'm still not sure why my CPU is locked at 3.9 Ghz, I don't see downclocking.
I thought that when using PState 0 (FID=9C, DID=8, VID=3A) and offset voltage it would downclock automatically?
I guess I've missed something, and so far this is the only thing I've changed, PState + VCore Offset.
Here is the CPU-Z validation link at 3.9Ghz http://valid.x86.fr/v4ndjn
and some cinebench and ycruncher at 2.5M decimals.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I've used my old DMM to check Vcore during load and idle, and here is some info:At load
DMM Vcore max 1.413 (HWinfo 1.417)
CPU core voltage max 1.394At IDLE
I don't have like a single value here, but I see the vcore moving a lot.
It goes from 1.102v to 1.401v, and averaging around 1.35v
I guess my offset is pretty agressive for a 3.9Ghz and I can probably go below, but I tried +0.1250 already and it didn't work.
+0.1000v worked at 3.8Ghz doing a single pass of y-cruncher and 2 cinebench runs.
I know this is not enough to check stability, but so far I'm trying to find the wall for my CPU, and once I've got an idea of how far it can go and for how much voltage, then I'll go down to probably a 3.9 (or 4.0 if I'm lucky) at about 1.38v for 24/7 usage.
It's really pleasing to play with this overclocking session
