I was playing around with the adaptive voltage settings and found something a bit interesting... 
 
If I set the target vcore voltage to 1.200 and the offset voltage to +0 (default) vcore voltage sits at a reported 1.234v in the BIOS, this can be seen in the attached screenshot "Offset Voltage 0". However where things start to get interesting is if I set the voltage offset to -100 which should decrease the voltage it actually increases the vcore voltage to 1.332v, this can be seen in the attached screenshot "Offset Voltage 100". Either I am misunderstanding something or this setting is not working as should and instead of decreasing voltage its actually increasing the voltage. Thoughts? 
 
I am using BIOS version 1.14 (getting ready to update to 1.17 to see if it does the same thing.
 
Thanks! 
 
Update 3/22/2019: 
EVGA reached out to me directly, shortly after the above post, with a BETA BIOS to install to see if the described issue had been corrected. After installing and testing I can confirm that the BETA BIOS that they provided corrected the issue. I assume that EVGA will be releasing an updated BIOS with this fix at some point.

    1.17 appears to work the same way.

    If my understanding of the functionality of that setting is correct than I would say this is a bug... EVGA clearly states in the BIOS that "Vcore offset voltage: Final voltage equals to sum of (Target + Offset). EG 1.2 + 200mv = 1.4v." Sine this excepts negative values in the range displayed in the BIOS than I dont think that its unreasonable to say that it should be 1.2 - 100mv = 1.1v certainly not 1.3v... Really at 1.2v I would suspect that it would do nothing.

    I have the Same Settings Same CPU Same Memory they both show different numbers but not a negative one.
    I would say it is more CPU Silicon Lottery than a Bios Bug.
    Maybe it is just reading it incorrectly or is by design.
    You are also using Adaptive and Setting the Mesh Ratio to 30 and not showing the rest of your Bios OC Settings.
    I use Override and stopped using Adaptive after Bios 1.09.
    What CPU are you running?
    Are you using Two EPS Cables or Only One?

    I am not sure how silicon lottery plays into this? Please explain. If I set the target vcore to 1.2v and the offset voltage to +0 voltage does not exceed 1.234v even under load. However if I set vcore to 1.2v and the offset voltage to -100 voltage increases to 1.332v, that is almost a perfect 100mv increase. When it should have decreased voltage by 100mv so it should have been 1.2v - 100mv = 1.1v not 1.332v.

    Just go by whatever the EVGA Forum Moderator tells you, so if they say it looks a Bug in the Bios then it must be.

    Not saying that I am right as well.
    But at least I can test this on my own hardware being that I do own this Motherboard.
    Keep us posted of what EVGA finds for you.

    LOL. Are you serious? He entered a negative value, and it increased his vcore. That is clearly a bug. That isn't how it's suppose to work.

    Mostly 1.2V min Vcore voltage is due to Intel CPU's VID programming range. When you have Adaptive Vcore it's not just simple X.X volts for VRM and CPU running that specific voltage at all times, but rather complex inter-operation between motherboard VRM, physical layout and own CPU power delivery regulator (FIVR). On software side there are three things that control voltages and power - BIOS code, PCU firmware (inside of CPU) and FIVR settings. 
     
    In theory BIOS can program any voltage, below 1.2V including, but if that voltage is below CPU's own VID point for current running frequency then CPU will ignore setting you program and will settle to own lowest voltage. Also I don't see much reason why you want lower voltage, even if CPU could run it in some cases, undervolting would cause stability issues on heavy-loads/turbo clocks. There is not much safe margin between CPU VID and stable clocks to make a large difference. Great tool for testing this would be Prime95 (non-AVX older version) and AVX newer version as it stresses chip pretty hard.
     
    Adaptive Vcore also does NOT mean cores will be running at 1.2V (or more) all the time, with default and even OC with adaptive Vcore setting voltage will be adjusted according to CPU loading, going down to 0.8V or lower, depends on CPU. To say differently: if you running adaptive and set voltage below what specific CPU have predefined from factory - voltage will be set by CPU, not MB BIOS. So we removed option to set below 1.2V at BIOS setup as it would have no effect.
     
    CPU will only run fixed voltage if you use Vcore override setting and set it over what's CPU default voltage level. 
    If you get good CPU (with plenty of voltage margin), I can recommend to try with Vdroop settings, perhaps there is specific configuration that can help you to maintain stability and let CPU run at lower voltages. Other point - you want to keep hottest die temperatures below 83C to maintain best performance.

    Re: EVGA X299 Dark BIOS Bug? 2019/03/13 19:00:10 (permalink)
    I have seen that post before. The original poster had asked "Is there any reason the minimum vcore adaptive target voltage on the EVGA Dark X299 is 1.2v?" because he was wanting to lower the voltage below 1.2v. Tin's response was basically that there was no point in running less than 1.2v due to the VID programming range from Intel which essentially ignores any voltage settings that you configure in the BIOS if those settings are less than what the CPU is asking for. For example if you set vcore to 1.2v and the CPU wants 1.3v it will ignore the settings in the BIOS and get 1.3v. However if you were to set the vcore voltage to 1.4v and the CPU wants 1.3v your settings would apply as its higher than what the CPU wants.
     
    However I dont believe that explains what is happening in my situation for two reasons...
    1. Tin is basically saying that EVGA does not offer a target voltage below 1.2v because essentially the CPU would be unstable and that in the rare cases that it was not there would not be a significant enough difference between the stable voltage and 1.2v. With that in mind I would think that setting a negative offset value of -100 would essentially result in no change to the actual vcore voltage however it appears to be resulting in an increase.
    2. If my CPU running with a target vcore voltage of 1.2v and an offset of 0 requests 1.234v to run. Why would it than request 1.332v to run with the exact same settings the only difference being the offset is now set to a negative -100? Adding to that it ironically increases to the exact amount that I changed the offset (within margin of error).
     
    Does that make since? (thanks for the reply by the way)

    Theoretically it would be running at 1.2v - 100mv = 1.1v. However as Tin explains in his post the CPU will ignore the voltage settings in the BIOS if they are lower than what the CPU is programmed from the factory to run at with a given clock\load. In my case the CPU with the given load (EVGA stress test in BIOS) and clock (4.5GHz) wants 1.234v so it should ignore the voltage offset that I put in place and run at 1.234v. In my case it is ignoring the voltage offset and running at 1.332v which makes no since at all.

    I just conducted another test which I feel continues to confirm that this makes no since... 
     
    Running, 
    vcore @ 1.2v and voltage offset at +0mv I get 1.2v (as reported by the BIOS on vcore)
    vcore @ 1.2v and voltage offset at -100mv I get 1.3v (as reported by the BIOS on vcore)
    vcore @ 1.2v and voltage offset at -200mv I get 1.4v (as reported by the BIOS on vcore)
     
    This just makes no since to me... why with all of the settings configured exactly the same for each test would the CPU request more voltage as a negative offset is put in place.

    I had our BIOS team look into this last night, and they were unable to reproduce this issue. 
     
    Can you let us know which CPU you're using, and can you provide us with your BIOS profile?  I'll forward these to our MB Team.

    Description of Issue: 
    With all of the above settings configured in the BIOS and a vcore voltage of 1.200v and offset voltage of +0 the BIOS reports CPU voltage at 1.250v. That voltage is reported within the BIOS screen and within the built in EVGA Stress Test in the BIOS. However if I set a negative voltage offset with all of the settings remaining exactly the same, so -100mv (voltage offset). The BIOS reports CPU voltage at 1.347v roughly a 100mv increase over the previous reported settings. This voltage is also confirmed within the built in EVGA Stress Test in the BIOS.
     
    I am well aware of the post from Tin_EE regarding vcore voltage being set at 1.2v and attempting to set it to a lower value is somewhat pointless... However I dont feel that applies in this situation as the would technically mean that I would basically see no change in voltage when setting a -100mv voltage offset and vcore of 1.2v, certainly should see an increase in voltage though. I have attached two BIOS profiles to this post... One labeled Offset voltage +0, this is just my standard normal settings that result in a typical voltage of 1.2v give or take. The other is labeled Offset Voltage -100 this is the one that results in a typical voltage of 1.3v.

    Update: 
    Sorry for the delay in posting an update, but I wanted to be certain that the issue was corrected before posting again. EVGA reached out to me directly, shortly after the above post, with a BETA BIOS to install to see if the described issue had been corrected. After installing and testing I can confirm that the BETA BIOS that they provided corrected the issue. I assume that EVGA will be releasing an updated BIOS with this fix at some point.
     
    Want to give a huge shout out to EVGA, this is outstanding support and I am extremely happy with my purchase!
