i7 950 Voltage Doesnt lower itself

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So im in the process of oc'ing and my multiplier drops down when my processor is idle but my voltage still stays at 1.3V is this right? When i was at stock and didn't over clock the voltage dropped down, how can i make it do this again?

Set CPU Voltage Control to Offset mode instead of Manual. Then you need to find an offset value that works with your overclock settings. I am running at 4.14 Ghz (180 * 23) using 0.2 as offset voltage. That setting puts idle voltage to 1.13 V and full load voltage to 1.38 V.
