I was wondering if the cpu vcore could be throttled like AMD overdrive does with its GPU once an overclocked is achieved and the cpu isn't at 100% load. To clarify what i mean. Lets say i achieve a stable overclock 4ghz @ 1.49vcore, now is is possible than when the cpu isn't at 100% use the vcore drops to a value between vdd and 1.49vcore set for the overclock acheived? I dont know if this has anything to do with C1E or any or the other cpu stepping features? Thanks for your help in advance.

if its for an intel cpu look into offset overclocking, the way i understand it is that the board/cpu derives the vcore based on the vid and the current c-state and with offset overclocking its basically doing the same thing but adding what you set the offset to the value it determines to give you the higher vcore you need, but if its for an amd sorry i have an intel

(dont quote me but for intel what you want to look into is offset overclocking.)

It is for an Intel CPU, thanks i'll look into that and see where it leads me.

This offset feature thing, is that something supported by specific motherboards?

Yes. Make sure all the power saving options enabled in your bios (its on the advanced frequency page i think, then go to advanced cpu settings or whatever, all the turbo and stuff is there, your manual shows how too). c1e, eist, speedstep, c3/c6, turbo. Then set overclock by changing the turbo values all to whatever overclock you want.

use offset voltage by typing, case sensitive, Normal (or just N it'll autoamtically take up as normal), then change DVID +/- as necessary.

When first trying to figure out what your max overclock is and at what voltage though, you use manual voltage generally, because it's a bit more stable. Then you fine tune using offset voltage.

Once I get my hands on my new board today ill check for those options. My old p45 lga775 gigabyte didn't have the offset voltage controls.
