Very nice, good stuff to know. Nothing quite like lowering power consumption and temps.

I'll need to bear this in mind if i ever I need to build anyone a new rig.

Very helpfull. Always wanted to do this, but have never found the time to thoroughly inform myself on the topic.

TBH I thought it would be more complicated. Gonna' give it a go when I get home from work now that I know how to go about it.

Just to add a little to this - been playing around with my own system last night/this morning.
Considering the most I do with my PC these days is browse the internet and watch films, there's never been much of a need to OC my 3960X or anything, and I've not really ever had the time since I got it.

Undervolted it this morning - 'Auto' volts set it to around 1.3v at stock clocks (3.9ghz turbo). After 30 mins of OCCT that managed to get the hottest core to 86 Degrees C.

After Undervolting, managed to get the volts down to 1.12v with the hottest core at 61 degrees.

Saving 25 degrees isn't half bad for something that's free and only takes a couple of hours.
