You need to look at VR VOUT.
This is my last set of config.
Basically I completely disabled manual IA VR AC/DC setting. Then:
CPU Internal AC/DC Load line: Turbo (to my knowledge I suppose this sets the intel defaults)
CPU Vcore Loadline Calibration: Normal (I understand that this way is disabled Edit: if I set it higher, together with proper DVID settings so the CPU voltage shown in bios is lower than 1.350, I either get complete shutdown during or after finishing running Cinebench either freezes, so only Normal works)
With DVID 0 I get CPU Voltage in BIOS 1.4xx V so I quickly went to a negative offset of -0.090 volts.
Right now, during stress tests (clock at 5 GHz, temps under 90 Celsius), the VR VOUT stays under 1.3 volts BUT the Vcore spikes close to 1.4 (1.39) and the Core VID values are through the roof (1.45 volts).
Are these settings still safe? Compared to my other (previous) configuration the system behaves pretty much the same, I just want to apply the simplest set of settings that would allow for safe overclock and dynamic behavior (variable voltages and clocks).
Also, under macOS (it's a hackintosh) the Core voltage shows up to 1.5 volts, sometimes at idle (I have no idea what value is reading, I have no reasons to believe that macOS is somehow rising the voltages) - is this something is safe to disregard?
