CPU overclocking using offset voltage

Hey have any of you guys ever done this? I'm using a -100mV offset to overclock my Intel 8700k to 4.8ghz. My understanding is that overclocking using this technique lowers all the various Speedstep voltages by -100mV also, which could affect CPU stability at idle or during light workloads when it automatically downclocks to save on power.

Is there a way for me to stability test each of these various frequencies?

If any of you guys know how to do this I would appreciate it. I like how the offset method gives lower idle power consumption.

Unfortunately my system was unstable with a -100mV offset. I don't think I recommend this method for overclocking. I'm back to using fixed voltage.

Are you using Adaptive offset

My motherboard doesn't support that feature. Thanks though, I will look for a feature like that on my next board. Looks useful.
