I'm using the Maximus X Hero with the 8700K. I am currently trying to move to Adaptive voltage but even after setting 1.260v as the adaptive voltage with +0.001 offset. HWiNFO64 reports my Vcore as 1.312 - 1.344V under light loads (web browsing, PUBG). Basically equal to the VID (1.315 - 1.350). I have LLC set to level 5 and even then the CPU only goes down to 1.28v during Cinebench and 1.296 under Prime95 26.6. I have set the IA AC/DC Load Line to 0.01 as per Kaby Lake/Skylake guides. I just think that 0.05 difference from what I set in the bios is too big. What else can I do to try? I have tried resetting CMOS and reflashing the 0505 bios.
did you set IA load lines to 0.01, or 0.001? I'm pretty sure re; kbl it was 0.001 for early bios releases.
0.01 is the lowest I can set them to and yes I have them set to 0.01
yeah - I seem to get a bit of overshoot on vcore with adaptive, SVID on Auto, LLC5. Bios set to 1.325 and it loaded 100mV higher running HCi memtest. Manual override does not do this on my MB . Noticed just now.. need to verify.
