Alder Lake – Which Motherboard Setting Impact Power? Temps?

And this is where things get interesting. After studying various reviews and changing several BIOS settings (which, by the way, also influence each other), I have found that there can actually be several factors that the VCCIA (i.e. what is displayed as Vcore in most tools) can influence. If, in my own tests, I can write about a CPU that can be cooled well, and thus a slightly lower power consumption, and others cannot, then in the end only the substructure used remains the cause of the differences. And that’s why today we will (have to) deal with voltage regulation and generation and also consider a few experiments that are extremely interesting.
