I did it a bit different and it took a bit longer...but i got a real stability on offset, not just when running Prime95. Before i would get random BSOD when idle or moderate load. That would happen cause VID scaling on my CPU is messed up...
So what did i do?
Just find all MULTIs on witch ur VID changes(highest MULTI for each VID stepping) and test them all on offset for 12 hrs Prime95.
example: 38-40 MULTI VID is 1.25V so test it at 40 multi with desired offset(e.g. offset -.080V);
41-43 MULTI VID is 1.30V- test it on 43 MULTI with the same offset(-.080V) as u did with a lower MULTI
If it fails add some Vcore and test again till u have 12 hrs stable Prime95 run...
so now u have -.070V offset @ 43 MULTI and from there u go e.g. 4.5Ghz @ 1.37V VID and test it with -0.070V offset
Repeat for each VID stepping till u get desired OC.
I did this cause some CPU-s(including mine) can do higher MULTIs whit more offset(e.g u can do 4.5ghz @ offset -.060V but CPU fails at that offset @ 4.3Ghz cause of the VID scaling)
It takes more time to tweak it like this but it s more stable OC for everyday use...
Just REMEMBER i used voltages, VID-s and MULTIs as an example...CPU is probably not scaling that way. u have to find them yourself for ur CPU.
