    powersaving is in the bios it allows the cpu to automatically downclock itself in speed and voltages at idle,then if you stress the cpu in gaming/video editing ect it switches to full speed/voltages

    dvid is dynamic voltage control it allows you to adjust cpu v and still let the cpu downclock at idle,fixed/manual cpu voltage wont allow the cpu to idle/powersave it will run at whatever you manually set the cpu v to

    powersaving is eist,c1e and c3/c6 powersaving states in the bios

    if the cpu is running at a constant 1.25v and full speed then the temps seem about right,you can improve idle temps a lot if you enable powersaving,and improve temps more if you undervolt the cpu

    also set to balanced power profile in windows 8 power saving options
    powersaving is in the bios < Well after googling for it this is what I found on the net
    X58A-UD3R I7/960 running too hot, baffled-powersaveoffjs9-gif
    however the BIOS I am running (FH) does not have those two highlighted areas in it for some reason.
    How exactly do I undervolt this BIOS? I do this in EasyTune 6?
    Would this be a good guide?

    As you suggested I set to balanced power profile.

    when you load cpu-z program does it stay at constant 1.275v or does it switch to less than 1v? if so then power saving is working,if not try a previous bios as it might be locked out on fh bios

    undervolt it through the bios,first set cpu v to normal in the cpu voltage list,this unlocks dvid for adjustment,then set negative to take off voltage so -0.0200v will take off 0.0200v making 1.255v instead of 1.275v
