If I wanted to use an offset, would I set Dynamic Vcore to +0.06875v since the base Vcore sets itself to 1.22500v? If I add those two figures together I get 1.29375v. Sorry this was my first time overclocking the CPU so I wasn't sure if this was how Dynamic Vcore works, I did ask reddit but no one was able to explain it to me (no one seemed to have Gigabyte boards to explain the settings so I had to semi-wing it).
I need help with this as well and P-state/offset overclocks with Gigabyte boards seem to be quite hard to achieve because of the scarcity of options. The trouble is nobody seems to know how to get it to actually down-volt on idle it's so frustrating.
This is where I've got to:
- Set vcore voltage from 'auto' to normal
- This allows you to set dynamic voltage (DVID)
- I enter 0.0500v or whatever needed (for a 3.7 OC in my case) DVID
- I leave dynamic SOC voltage on normal.
- I make sure Global C-states is enabled and Core Performance Boost is disabled
- I set frequency multiplier to 37 for 3700Mhz
- LCC is left on auto or normal
Now despite all this, when idle, my voltage doesn't drop. So what the hell is the setting stopping the dynamic voltage from working? Anyone?!?
Windows Power Plan doesn't make a difference. AMD Cool & Quiet enabled/disabled doesn't make a difference.
