Hi,
I've been using my pc with this configuration for a while, now I finally have some time to look for overclocking option. Bios on AsRock z370 pro 4 is v 3.10.

Power limit options were left on "Auto".

I did following steps:
CPU configuration
- changed cpu ration to All core option
- changed All Core option to 45
- changed AVX ratio offset to 2

Testing with Prime 95 all good, HWMonitor showed 1.425 VID when running test, so I decided to lower voltage a little in order to get temperature down and to decrease power consumption.

So I did following changes to Voltage Configuration:
- CPU Core/Cache Voltage to offset mode
- Set Offset Voltage to -100

I ran Prime 95 once again to test stability, all good temps went down, power consumption also went down a little, but HWMonitor still shows 1.425 VID when running test.

Now I am little bit confused, because I applied a negative offset, so why VID is still the same?

I am cooling with air using CM hyper 212. I am looking for a decent overclocking, something like "sweet spot" between what games can benefit from and with as lower power consumption as possible. And of course, I do not need to run CPU on that 4.5 clock when browsing internet or watching videos.

There are also other options which I left enabled:
-Intel speed step technology
-Intel Turbo Boost technology
-Intel Speed Shift technology
Is it ok?

Are here any users with same combo so we could compare settings with?

Thanks in advance
