So, this seemed to switch from the topic of trying to get Adaptive voltage to work properly more so to purposes of getting a stable overclock at 5ghz. I'm also having the same issues with getting my CPU to downvolt when at idle running like an 800mhz clock speed. I have it steady at 4.9ghz all core at 1.279v but no matter what I change with adaptive voltage I can't get it to reduce bellow that 1.279v it just sits there. Granted this I suppose is first world problems at this point.

Please see Shamino's post on the previous page. It is not possible to set an Adaptive Voltage below the minimum VID. Please note that if you use Adaptive in conjunction with an offset (-) that this offset is applied to the entire VID stack.

Yes, the original intent of the thread was to seek help regarding switching to Adaptive voltage mode under my circumstances at the time, however as mentioned on the last few pages those circumstances have changed for an unknown reason (my manual OC went from stable to unstable by itself, so to speak), throwing another spanner into the works. I am still working on an adaptive overclock, just not necessarily a 5Ghz one. I will likely need further assistance going forward. Feel free to start another thread if the info in this one or it's direction doesn't quite align with what you're looking for. 🙂
If it helps, what I am doing at the moment is following Shamino's suggestion of leaving the Adaptive Mode Additional Turbo Voltage on Auto and adjusting the IA AC/DC LoadLines and LLC to get the voltage in the right place.
My appologies I'm not trying to hi-jack the thread. Generally as ALL post i've read on the subject point to another thread before making a new post. Since you started off with the problem I had which is that you couldn't get the downvolting to work on Adaptive I figured i'd post the question again to see if maybe someone had come up with a solution to that problem.
As it appears to be an issue of bios versions just breaking things pretty much I have reverted back and now I have what I was looking for. Sorry again for posting the way I did if it felt like I was trying to hi-jack. (people on this forum are not keen to accepting new topics for issues that are currently being discussed already. I've read enough replies on threads that have something similar to this issue post that their is already a topic for that.)
raja is right but since you're manually over-riding it doesnt matter if its auto or best case, you will get your specified 0.04
The other question is regarding the cache ratio. I'm trying to overclock to cache now that I believe I am stable (at least in RealBench) and I've set the min and max ratio to 45, however this appear to prevent the CPU from downvolting at idle. Should I just set the max ratio and leave the min at Auto to amend this?
yes if you wanna idle with low volts.
Is Realbench still a good test for the OC with the cache ratio increased? Or am I better off running AIDA64's cache stress test instead?
if you mean what is toughest to pass, its no different from core, the heaviest and hottest bench is the toughest, AVX prime95 is one of those. but you dont need to
realbench is enough if you just want a stable system apart from prime95 torture.

The latest Prime95 beta allows you to disable AVX from within settings. Personally, I would stay with RB stability and use the machine for what you built it for till you encounter any issues, and adjust accordingly*
