View Full Version : Adaptive Vcore on Z270G

Hi everyone,

So I've got an i7 7700k on an Asus z270g. I clocked it to 4.6 and left the vcore on Auto, it does go up to 1.32v sometimes and I have fully tested it on Manual @ 1.2v stable.

So, my question is the following, I want to have 1.2v maximum on LOAD. On idle I want it to downscale as it does when on Auto (usually goes down to 0.6~0.7v with c3 and c6 states enabled). What happens when I switch to Adaptive Voltage is that no matter the values or the offset it always go over the value I set at. If I choose Manual it just stays at the value I set at, in this case 1.2v, even on idle. I fully remember my z97 motherboard not acting this way and even going down to 0.3~0.5 volts on Manual due to the C-states.

So, has something changed in the z270 series that I'm unaware of? Can someone help me achieve what I want?

Cheers

Which options are you modifying for Adaptive voltage?

Just the regular voltage and the offset, even if the offset is set to Auto be it + or - the result is the same. It always goes over my set voltage

Do you have the Additional Turbo Mode CPU Core Voltage option? That's what I use and has never failed me.

Yes, I have it set to 1.2v, offset - and offset voltage on Auto or whatever value I input there it always goes up to around 1.23-1.26v when gaming for example.

Hello

The adaptive voltage cannot be lower than the existing programmed VID by Intel. If set lower the result will be the default value.

Try a manual negative offset with LLC set to level 5 or 6. For example, if you want 1.2v, set the turbo voltage to 1.205v and the negative offset to -0.005. You can play around with the numbers to reach your target.
