    Default Should I use LoadLine Calibration?

    I tried enableing it and was able to drop my VCORE from 3v down to 2.26v so far and its still stable. What are the downsides to using it? What do you guys recommend?
    Thanks

    Default Re: Should I use LoadLine Calibration?

    I guess you meant VCore from 1.3V to 1.26V in the BIOS setting.

    Generally I use loadline-calibration when overclocking quad-cores, as the VDroop (difference between idle and load) is quite big with these CPUs without it.

    Imho you should use it with a Core i7, but don't make much of the fact that the voltage you set in BIOS is lower, the only voltage that matters is the actual voltage that the CPU receives under load (i.e. the CPU-Z reading).
