I have watched JJ's Video twice on X79 overclocking-----very well done. But i do have a question about Offset voltage and how much it should be.
The way I understand it----the offset allows for the processor to go up and down voltage wise as the processor goes up and down step wise-----using Speed Step and C-State.
An efficent way to consume voltage and keep heat levels way down at idle or lower speeds/steps----when the additional voltage is not needed.
But JJ in his overclock video recommends a setting of + .2000 as the general offset.
If my processor (during auto overclocking) was using 1.460 to achieve a 4.8 overclock----that means (if I understand offset correctly) that it was using a standard vcore of 1.260----with an offset of an additiona + .200o vcore----which then gives it 1.460
and at lower speed demands/steps/states----where that additional voltage is not required-----it would drop back to a vcore of 1.260 thus saving voltafge/heat/wear and tear on the processor.
Bottom line is how do I come up with a proper offset voltage setting????
And.......am I understanding this correctly??
