    what voltage does the "normal" cpu setting set your voltage at? for me its 1.18750v but it varies from chip to chip

    I'm not sure I understand the question.

    As noted, on the "Normal" CPU Vcore voltage setting, my "Core Voltage" is reported (by CPU-Z) as 1.040v at idle. And, at idle, there is no adjustment for Dynamic Vcore ... it doesn't kick in at idle.

    Under load while using the Intel Burn Test, the CPU multiplier jumps from 12x to 21x, the core speed reaches 4.2 GHz, and (with Dynamic Vcore set at +0.125v) the Core Voltage increases to 1.264v (again, as reported by CPU-Z).

    sorry to confuse,if you look in easytune/tuner/advanced/voltage 1 it will tell you your cpu voltage as power on and target

    I don't use EasyTune (and don't have it installed). The voltages reported by HWiNFO32 (another utility that I use) are the same as those reported by CPU-Z. Both get their readings from the ITE IT8720F chip, as EasyTune must.

    ok its not important,i just thought you might be able to lower it a little more,easytune shows the cpu voltage different to those programs,they display what the cpu is using which isnt as much as what its set too ill post pics to show you what i mean


    cpu voltage is set to normal/1.18750v

    cpu-z idle voltage

    cpu-z load

    see how much cpu vcore is set in easytune yet at full load it only uses 1.168v,so the cpu will only use what it needs under load ect

    I appreciate seeing your numbers. I note that your BCLK is 180 and mine is 200. Consequently, your maximum core speed is 3780.0 MHz, while mine is 4200.0 MHz ... a not insignificant difference. Based upon this difference, I would expect my voltages to be higher. Note that my idle voltage of 1.040 v is set by the BIOS (I selected "Normal", and this is what I got; so some algorithm in the BIOS ... undoubtedly tied to the BCLK, set this).

    The component of Vcore voltage that I selected myself is the Dynamic Vcore. I set this by using the Intel Burn Test and Prime 95 ... i.e., what does it take to reach stability on 25 cycles of the Intel Burn Test ("High").

    i just stick to 180bclk to run memory at 1800mhz,dynamic vcore i set to normal also,and yes it will probably use slightly more vcore when idle due to higher bclk not cpu multi,you did well to clock to 4.2ghz with normal setting and temps are good too

    EDIT: i see you have win7 now,have you tried disabling c1e in the bios and selecting "balanced" power saving profile in windows power saving options?? it does the same job as c1e,throttle/reduce cpu multiplier and voltage at idle and full speed/highest cpu multiplier under heavy load,"high performance" setting runs cpu at full speed at load and idle,also uses full cpu voltage load and idle

    Sorry i did not reply before I must have missed it.

    System works fine with or without power saving features.

    On a side note I found it interesting that even with all the power saving features enabled, there really isn't that much power saving going on. The difference for me is >30 watts. With the system in 'idle' mode the system draws 225watts. Sitting at the desktop with 2xGTX275's in their 3d clock modes the system draws 250watts. I just leave it all disabled because this system runs BOINC almost 24/7 and the rest of the time I'm gaming so its not like I'd save much even living in one of the highest costing electricity states in the US ($0.20/kwh). The system as a whole ends up costing me ~20 cents/hr when gaming D: I also figure that if the system is going to idle at >200 watts I might as well just sleep it if I do not plan on running BOINC.

    Interesting, I always thought saving power was a scam, now I see it really doesn't save all that much just like I thought

    I wouldn't call it a scam, its just a feature that gets blown out of proportion. I7's are enthusiast CPU's, thus are very power hungry. The fact that I have 2 high capacity hard drives and a raptor, plus 2-high end video cards probably doesn't help. If you had 10 systems just sitting idle then you might start to see a difference in your power bill.

    In my case over the course of a year if my computer was on and idling 24/7 I would save $5 (based on $0.19-0.20/kwh. 30watts/1000watts per kw*.19 per kw*24hrs day*365 days year). When you take into account that I DC, my system probably doesn't idle for more than 1hr a day, so over a year I would barely save $2 ($2.08). Yearly that is $36.62 vs $41.61. And that is with the 2nd most expensive electricity in the US which is nearly double what most see, not sure about internationally though.
