    okay, so

    voltage set in bios = 1.380
    LLC = high
    load voltage (according to cpuz) = 1.360 - 1.376
    load vid (according to core temp) = 1.2059
    **this results in a stable 4.8 overclock on my 3770k

    according the offset formula,
    it is MANUAL VCORE minus LOAD VID

    in this case, it would be:
    1.380 - 1.2059 = 0.1741

    so this is an positive(+) offset of 0.175 rounded up.

    for those who have experience with offset and such, is there any problems using such a high offset number?
    most offsets I seen around the web is like 0.050, 0.075 and etc.

    some might argue, use ULTRA LLC and drop the vcore- the problem with this is, it overshoots the vcore on load way past the vcore I entered in the bios. for example;

    vcore set in bios = 1.360
    LLC = ultra
    load voltage (according to cpuz) = 1.380 - 1.384
    load vid (according to core temp) = 1.2059
    **this results in an overshoot of volts being pushed into my processor, a whole .020 or .024 over!
    anyway, in this scenario...
    1.360 - 1.2059 = 0.1541; a positive offset of 0.155

    so either way, the offset will be pretty high.
