    Thought I'd make a dedicated thread to see how well everyone has been able to undervolt their Skylake chips. I've managed to hit -195mV (HWMonitor shows -200mV) stable with 10 passes of IntelBurnTest on Maximum

    Oh awesome, cheers for that reference. I have already tested Prime95 Small FFT's stable for 30 minutes so I believe I may be even able to go lower!

    in addition to prime95(small fft ), you should also run some 3d games to ensure the stability. I had frequent BSODs playing dota2 with -179mv. But it paased 30 minutes prime95.

    Good advice to know, thanks. Would that still be recommended even though I don't play any games on this system?

    Well, I never had any BSOD with -179.7 while not playing intensive 3d games (like dota2, COD). So I guess the Nvidia CPU's involvement may have some influence on the undervolting stability.

    Did you mean Nvidia GPU? So they must be linked somehow?
    I'm actually -205mV stable now haha, HWMonitor is showing -210mV though and I'm not too sure why, it always shows 5mV lower than what I've got it set to in ThrottleStop...

    yeah, a typo.
    -205 is really an aggressive one. I tried 190 and it crashed after running prime95 for a few minutes.

    I ran Prime for an hour without fail on -205mV however Forza Horizon 3 froze after about 5 minutes. I'll still keep in on -205mV for daily usage and if I game (which is very rare), I'll drop it back down to something like -175mV
