After this, I ditched offset mode and used a manual voltage of 1.375. Re-measured 1.54V.
Somewhat in panic, I cleared CMOS (twice) and loaded the default settings. In the BIOS, it now read 1.64V.
- My 1800x is faulty
- My C6H is faulty
- My DMM is faulty
- I'm missing something
I'm hoping for any of the last 2. Will try to borrow a DMM and re-test.
TL;DR: 1800X on a CH6, in the BIOS screen:
- Offset -0.0625, LLC 3, measured 1.52V
- Offset -0.0625, LLC Auto, measured 1.51V
- Manual 1.375, LLC Auto, measured 1.54V
- Everything default, measured 1.64V
To whoever was following this yesterday, borrowed a friend's DMM today. In sum, my DMM is not measuring accurately.Offset -0.0625, LLC 3
: In the BIOS, measured 1.351V (BIOS showed 1.373~1.395V). During IBT AVX, measured 1.349~1.351V (Vcore showed 1.373~1.395V, SVI2 showed 1.319~1.331V)Offset -0.0625, LLC 2
: In the BIOS, measured 1.349V (BIOS showed 1.373~1.395V), During IBT AVX, measured 1.299V and then got a code 8
So it looks like it's all good
Thanks for the help @Reikoji, @madweazl and @ProTekkFZS!Edited by goncalossilva - 4/18/17 at 5:16pm
