I got better all core overclocks out of it than I could single core... so to sum it up... it can get very strange with fx.... I'd pick a manual setting you like and just stick with it... fx cpu's are very durable and my old 9590 is still chugging along after being left at 1.464v / 5ghz it's whole life mostly, sometimes it was 1.5+ and 5.117ghz
Ok, understand it. Anyway, i would not go to manage turbo core frequencies or voltage. Too far above for my time and what i would like to do.
The off set, if i would like to use it, is only for the use of cool&quiet - energy saver mode but i don't even if i don't know about stability and so on.
Setting the 6th profile now saved.
Do u have any tips about the BIOS settings?
