vid vs manual voltage?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I noticed with my board doing a turbo overclock with vid on the thing is stable every time i stress test. I also noticed with vid that when clocks are low the voltages drops down to 1.09 where as if I set the voltage manually it stays that voltage all the time.

So the question is: Is it better to use vid so when idling the voltage downclocks itself or is better to feed a steady voltage to it constantly? keep in mind when I do manual voltages I can use a slightly lower voltage than what vid uses.

You mean offset? For me if you are going to lock the overclock in by turnng off the power saving features, and have it run at the overclocked speed 24/7, then for sure set it manually.

But if you are going to let the cpu downclock at idle it seems wrong to keep the high voltage while it rest at 1.6ghz.

yea I mean offset (thought vid meant auto voltage idk).

is it better to lock to oc in and just run 4.5+ 247 or use a turbo clock and downclock when idle? I was thinking turbo since it would put less stress on the chip over time (temp wise)

i mean is better to have voltage steady or jumpy is really what i wanna know

Yah I hate how the voltage is so jumpy under load. Its fine if you use turbo like you said it is less stressful on the cpu. Thats how these were designed to run so thats how I have been running mine.

As far as the voltage jumping around under load I don't think its good. It probably won't cause a problem though unless it does a huge spike, but with reasonable clocks this shouldn't happen.

My voltage seems to move about .03 while stressing. Pisses me off because sometimes it can dip and cause a bsod.
