Gigabyte z77-d3h overclocking

Post by jnanster » Wed Aug 22, 2012 8:40 pm

Built new system.
Successfully overclocked 2600k to 4.7 Ghz using turbo (drops to 1.6 Ghz in idle.)
Auto voltage way to high, 1.5+v (around 1v at idle)
Easily OC's to 4.7 Ghz at 1.4 volts, but would like to limit the Auto Volt to 1.4v so that the idle voltage drops too.
Is there any setting to limit the Auto Voltage?
ga-z77-dh3 (great & cheap O/C'er from Gigabyte)
i2600k/16 gigs Kingson 1600 (OC'ed to 4.5Ghz)
CoolerMaster Hyper 212 + (lapped, smok'in deal, 38C idle, 65C loaded)
MSI GTX 660ti Power Edition
Antec 900 case (quiet)

auto will volt the CPU as it sees it needs it, best choice is to manually set the voltages
