Are you in fixed voltage mode or offset?

Did you turn of any power savings settings?

Have you seen this Thread OP ??
http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread...ng-Offset-Mode


i see this thread but it has to be another topic.

Are you in fixed voltage mode or offset?


all i do is manually change the voltage to 1.16, and manually change the multiplier.

Did you turn of any power savings settings?


no , i did not do anything in windows a fresh install.



Well it seems like i forgot something to change please advice thanks.

I think MarshallR might have meant power savings settings in BIOS, not Windows.

Manually setting the voltage will cause it to run at that voltage no matter how fast the CPU runs. To have it change with the CPU using offset will be needed. Follow this guide http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?2162-Overclocking-Using-Offset-Mode-for-CPU-Core-Voltage&co...

BIOS power savings settings (I think I haven't missed any):
- Extreme Tweaker: EPU Power Saving Mode
- Extreme Tweaker: EPU Settings
- Extreme Tweaker -> CPU Power Management
- Extreme Tweaker -> DIGI+ Power Control
- Advanced -> CPU Configuration -> CPU Power Management Configuration
- Advanced -> APM: ErP Ready

Check if all (maybe except ErP) are Auto or Enabled.

I changed my multiplier and voltage values to yours (well, my accepted 1.165 instead of 1.162) and, in my case, when CPU idles, voltage does go down, to 1.144.
