Hey y'all, I was trying some stuff the other night goofing around with the Intel Adaptive Boost Technology, and found out some interesting stuff.
First, when I set ALL my CPU stuff (voltages and all) to auto, and use XMP1 with my ram, I get a SUPER fast pc just using the Intel Adaptive Boost Technology. The system benchmarks better than any overclocking I have tried, and then settles back down in both voltage and speed and cools right off. To me, this feels like a GREAT 24/7 way to get the best out of my system. It's like having an overclock boost only when you need it.
BUT there is a snag (isn't there always), the CPU "Under Full Load Benchmarking" gets HOT FAST and I mean hot, some cores (my hotter running ones) shoot right up to 97C, and the powers/package shoots up to 311W, (I have no idea if this is safe or not), but the voltage stays reasonable, under 1.5 like around 1.47, which one of the Techs over at the intel forums says is intended and is fine as long as it doesn't run there 24/7. NOW, I know people will mostly say that it is always best to do a manual overclock and use a set voltage and stuff like that, and I'm sure that it is, but I have to say, that the system seems to run SO much better using this automatic method, it feels really stable.
I did try to set a voltage to try to control the heat and such, but then my system won't post at all, and I have to reset the BIOS and either turn all my CPU stuff back to full auto or turn off Intel Adaptive Boost Technology. It seems to me that Intel Adaptive Boost Technology needs to control all that stuff for it to be stable?
SO, bottom line, I was wondering if anyone is using Intel Adaptive Boost Technology for everyday use and if so, how are you controlling heat? (like setting a VDroop preset? or a specific voltage? stuff like that)
PS: Keep in mind I am VERY new to a lot of this stuff, tweaking voltages and stuff, so you gotta be specific and use terms that I can actually find in the BIOS when suggesting I try something.
