Hi, I finally got my new rig put together, but the CPU is running a bit hot for my taste, so I thought - Hey, I don’t need all that speed anyway, and how hard can it be to turn it down a notch?
Well, as it happens, quite a lot harder than expected. Granted I don’t have any experience with overclocking, but I am fairly tech savy, and there are options in BIOS to adjust the voltage, or so it seems, only even when enabled they won’t actually let me adjust anything.
Anyhow, I’m running the Ryzen 2700x on the Asus Rog Swifth x470-i Gaming, if that makes any difference, and I’d very much appreciate some advice, because I really can’t fit a bigger cooler.
For future comparison, I have manage what seem to be a stable offset of -8.125v. I’m guessing I haven’t won’t the silicon lottery, but what ya gonna do.
