offset or manual - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Likely irrelevant, being on p55, but I thought the off-set feature was just to allow power saving features in windows? I kept mine to vid during my initial clocking setup, then turned it on for the power saving, didn't have to increase anything.

I'm still a newb at overclocking no big issue. I still barely understand the offset manual difference.

so no one said whats the better way to o/c is it with upping offset voltage
or is it manual adjusting the cpu voltage.

manual voltage will give you a better overclock. the asus reps recommend manual for high overclocks.
here is a good write up / guide from an ASUS rep on overclocking.

the only reason i am asking is ant it bad to run 1.42v all the time on a 2600k.
like when i use manual cpu voltages i will always stay at 1.42v even if my cpu down clocks to 1600ghz.
so i just want to know if this is safe. my temp never go pass 67c

I looked recently and havent seen any "recommended" voltages for the Sandy Bridge chips on Intel's end. There are some interesting quotes from ASUS' reps. They can be found here http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1578110

The real question is, they designed these chips to be overclocked. But how much of the chips life expectancy will be lost due to this? I guess what I am trying to say is if I run 1.5v on my chip 24/7 will that reduce its lifespan by 50%?

There is a quote from an ASUS rep saying that-
Quote:
Yes as noted in my guide. Ideally i would not recommend anything in excess of 1.425 for 24/7 operation while the overall temperature may still allow for additional voltage and even additional frequnecy scaling i do not think it is worth it.
ASUS is always quoted having said-
Quote:
Additionally it is recommended to keep 「C1E」and「EIST」option enabled for the best overclock scaling. This is different than previous Intel overclocking expectations where the best scaling was with disabled power states or power management options.
But to achieve anything higher than 4.8 you need to disable the speedstep settings.
But they were always quoted as saying this-
Quote:
Lastly as always ASUS holds no liability for any damage you or your hardware may incur during the pursuits of overclocking.
Hope this helps some.
