i set it to auto with offset off but in prime 95 again it's jumped to 1.320, even though before i started prime it was at 1.098. should i enter a manual number instead?

Great thread! Subscribed!

Just to all add my 2 cent (pence where I'm from) DO NOT underestimate the benefit of updating the BIOS. I have just updated my P8Z77-V to the latest firmware 1406 and I've managed to reduce my offset by 0.010V and still maintain stability. I'm still testing so could even manage to reduce further.

You need to do a little more reading on how offset works. AUTO is the board's wild guess as to what it thinks it needs to provide the CPU with. From your figures I would turn offset to minus and use 0.020V as a starting point. Go from there dependent on your clock.

it's possible 1.32 is the default voltage.

Great looking thread. Will be using in the next few days for sure since I just picked up new chip and motherboard.

Thanks smile.gif I update most of the time usually resulting in better voltages.

What LLC are you using and you could try a negative offset if after tweaking the LLC still doesn't work.

Will do, am currently 4.5 hours into stability testing on my i7 @ 4.5GHz running at 1.216v
Took a lot of reading/tinkering but it seems to be all good now (until I feel like pushing it further)
In my humble (noob) opinion, the best you can do when overclocking is reading and then experimenting on your own. I learned a lot more about my system when getting my hands into the BIOS than I could have learned with just reading. The most important factors are patience, as long as you stay within the safe limits (as defined in your post) everything should be fine.
Of course, it also helps having a forum where awesome people (such as yourself) offers support and guidance. thumb.gif
