    Two other reasons to find lower voltage settings where possible, to reduced power, temperature and current.


    1. You get more out of Turbo Boost 2.0.
    2. (TVB) Thermal Velocity Boost, which can increase Turbo Boost 2.0 frequency by up to two speed bins higher(temps allowing).
    Can you explain this further? For gaming or benching I use the performance power plan which should lock the frequency at 5Ghz, I don't need to worry about whether it's boosting. Am I missing something?

    This isn't for gaming or benching, this is for daily use, and saving money on electricity,m and also for longevity form my chip(it's golden, why wear out the silicone?)

    Hey @Kol12 if you want to try on your board(you have a Maximus X also), here are my settings for CPU & power management you can adjust or adapt to your CPU's capabilities. At least it shows you what I have done: Offset plus 0.170_setting.txt

    Things to look at:

    SVID Behavior [Best-Case Scenario]

    CPU Core Ratio [Sync All Cores]
    1-Core Ratio Limit [50]
    2-Core Ratio Limit [50]
    3-Core Ratio Limit [50]
    4-Core Ratio Limit [50]
    5-Core Ratio Limit [50]
    6-Core Ratio Limit [50]
    7-Core Ratio Limit [50]
    8-Core Ratio Limit [50]

    CPU SVID Support [Disabled]

    CPU Core/Cache Current Limit Max. [255.75]

    BCLK Aware Adaptive Voltage [Disabled]
    CPU Core/Cache Voltage [Offset Mode]
    - Offset Mode Sign [+]
    - CPU Core Voltage Offset [0.170]

    CPU VCCIO Voltage [Auto]
    CPU System Agent Voltage [Auto]
    PLL Termination Voltage [Auto]
    PCH Core Voltage [Auto]
    CPU Standby Voltage [Auto]

    BCLK Spread Spectrum [Disabled]
    VRM Spread Spectrum [Disabled]
    CPU Spread Spectrum [Disabled]

    Thanks @Cliff I'll see how that compares to what I have set up and let you know. I notice that you have VCCIO on Auto and I was told that these boards set the VCCIO and VCCSA voltages quite high, as high as 1.4V. You can take these under 1.2V and that might save some power and reduce heat too.

    I can also offer some tips for C-States, I'll tell you later.

    Hi,
    With enhanced speed stuff disabled doubt you'd see any weird stuff happening at idle
    But speed step disabled and speed shift enabled is okay to lower vid's for less power usage on no load...

    You should switch to hwinfo or post your vid's per core max
    I've found if the vid's vary more than 0.020 instability appears.
    Sorry I'm late answering this post Mike, I must have missed it somehow

    CPUvid has no real meaning when overclocking as VID tables "float" depending on temps, Freq, and applied voltage.
    CPUvid is what the voltage the CPU requests from the VRM, not, though, what it gets.

    Some information on intel CPU voltages. - YouTube

    Well,

    Got in the Zotac GTX 1660 Ti AMP just now and it's installed in the system.

    Now I have a question..

    My old GTX960 is now sitting idle.

    What is the opinion on using the old GTX960 as a dedicated Physx card for the new 1660Ti?

    And one more...
    What is a good Physx demo that I can use to try the system out.

    Forgive me my excitement. This is the first time I am current gen (even if mainstream) in GPU's. I usually stay in the Gen-1 mid-range.

    Cliff won't be around because he has gone to get liquid nitrogen to try and cool his GPU down in the basement, either that or he is watching the video on repeat.
