Just wanted to know if there's a way to use offset while maintaining my stable 4.5ghz clock at 1.32

Can i switch to offset and change it to what so when mt computers idle my volts drop but when my CPU is under stress it uses the right amount of vcore to achieve my 4.5ghz 1.32v stable clock?

OFFSET +0.020V. Siwtch this up or down depending on your CPU silicone.

OFFSET +0.020V would be 1.32v? What do you mean by CPU silicone?

the offset to lower your volts is the minus(-) to raise your volts it is the positive(+)

the safe way is write down your Vcore, set offset to -0.020 then reboot back in the bios an notice how far and which way your Vcore went.

1.32 is ok but a lot of folks get it to 1.27 stable.

Should I try this while the multiplier is set to 4.5ghz or try it at stock and once I have the number down raise and test?

Unfortunately I'm not one of those lucky people. I get BSOD if i try anything lower than 1.32v

I just tried what you suggested above and I have offset set to +0.140 I then saved an went back into bios and it shows what I had before which is 1.32 so it's safe to boot in to windows?

As for my LLC it's set to extreme

raising the offset to +0.140 is raising your volts. and having your LLC to extreme can cause a spike in your voltages.
LLC is to compensate for vdroop it might be better to lower that setting.

what motherboard do you have?

btw, i mean for you to minus(-) your offset. going lower in volts can only cause you not to post, and you would have to reset you cmos. no harm there.

here are two guides that might help:

sorry to leave you for now :(  i am sure someone else will help.

All my info you need is in my signature but I have a p8z68-v pro

I tried the (-) the volts werent nowhere near the 1.32 it went way to low.

Btw thanks for takin the time out and helping me.
