What I would do is not use offset to determine the voltage it takes for you chip.
for 3.8ghz you should be able to run in that 1.1 area. Just set voltage to auto and multi to 38 and see what your VID is.
Then try to set it at that voltage and start backing down.
So I've watched A TON of videos today just to get a sense of the game. Looks interesting, but we'll see.
The 1 thing i know is going to get old is the constant calling out of getting a kill.... "GOT THAT ONE" -_-
I love my 5960x (even though it OC's like crap) I have owned 3930k and 4930ks before, but this thing is a different animal in rendering and editing!
I also own a 5930k but I htink its about to find a new home.
Mine will do 1500 without touching the voltage... If you have a card that takes more volts to get a higher clock, then there is no way to rectify that unless you reduce clocks to where neither needs volts to achieve X clock.
I posted this over at OCN, but I felt like since I'm new here, it could be useful here as well! Learn from my screwup!
So, as some of you know I recent built a super nice rig with a phase change cooled 5960x in it. I did lots of reading and prep work to make aure I had everything insulated and...
The 980M is a monster GPU but is still gimped a good bit. If you dont need the desktop, then why not pocket some money and uprade.
I do know the 980m's are EXPENSIVE though.
What games are you playin to give me a better understanding.
Its pretty sad, but I dont think I've ever kept a GPU more than a year... :( I get the upgrade bug to much...
GTX 560TI 448 --> GTX 570 (SLI) --> HD6970 --> HD7970 DC2 --> GTX 680 --> GTX 680 (SLI) -- HD7950 (Xfire) --> GTX 780 (SLI) --> GTX 780 Ti Classy (3 SLI) and an R9 290X Lightning -->...
