I'm willing to apply whatever necessary setting in bios to test and have peace of mind, I'm just not sure what exactly to do:
50 core multiplier
what next ?
I repeat, my goal is to determine if there is something wrong with the cpu or mb, because i got the feeling that it uses to much power for stock values.
I haven't close the hwinfo window after the test, in idle vrout is mostly between 1.150 and 1.256, rarely drops to 0.734, with the max being 1.305 now.
While some people like C-states and turbo boost/downclocking, I always like a fixed multiplier and frequency. I'm not telling you you have to use it, but I can't see what's going on if your voltages and multipliers are all over the map.
Power should be measured by Current IOUT (Amps) and Power POUT (Watts).
CPU Package Power is precisely VID * Amps, and if VID is higher than VR VOUT, then CPU Package Power will be reported too high as well.
"Stock" is based on stock settings of 4.7 ghz core and 4.3 ghz ring and the CPU's default "VID" setting for 4.7 ghz (which can be anywhere between 1.12v to 1.20v).
The problem is, the AC Loadline value influences what is sent to the VRM as a 'target voltage' and is added to the base "VID". The resulting displayed VID (*before DC Loadline drops it down*) and the target VR VOUT (before vdroop drops it down) is what the VRM uses. Please check my other posts here and in the 9900K thread as I explained this with FARRRR too many words and is way too complicated to write all over again. (Vcore Loadline Calibration should be left on standard/normal when using Auto CPU Vcore voltage, if AC Loadline is at 1.6 mOhms). This only applies on "Auto" CPU Vcore; manual voltages directly program the VRM with a target voltage (Ignoring VID), although VID is still affected by AC Loadline.
Gigabyte uses presets for AC And DC Loadline based on the CPU ratio/frequency and the "Auto" setting for "CPU Internal Load Line". Manually putting values in "Internal VR Settings" for AC Loadline and DC Loadline will overrule and supercede the "Internal Load Line" presets.
The maximum values Intel specifies for AC Loadline is 1.6 mOhms, and DC Loadline should normally be set to the same value as VRM loadline (unfortunately, board makers don't tell you the mOhm values for Loadline Calibration, but "Standard" and "Normal" are 1.6 mOhms and "Turbo" is 0.4 mOhms--I experimented and found those myself).
