Don't play with offset yet, and don't set LLC to High when using offset. If you use Auto or Manual to set CPU voltage. You are setting the CPU idle voltage, your CPU voltage at full load will be lower and that's call vdroop. LLC is a setting to minimize vdroop by giving more voltage to the CPU when load is higher.
But if you set voltage by using offset, the load voltage will be higher than the idle voltage. In this case, with the same offset, the higher LLC you set, the higher the difference between idle and load voltage. So if you have chosen a setting that give enough voltage to the CPU for it to be stable under full load, the CPU may not be getting enough voltage when idle or less-than-full load. Your PC will be rebooting at random and crashes while surfing the web.
Instead of using offset. Set CPU voltage by using manual first. Set PPL to Ultra High, instead of High, this minimize Vdroop and keep idle and load voltage very close (don't use Extreme LLC, that makes my system unstable). Use this PPL setting to determine the minimize constant voltage that your CPU need to sustain at full load. Once you got that value, THEN you go play with offset. When using offset, set LLC to regular, and find the offset value that gives you the amount of voltage you determined earlier to your CPU when full load. Only if you find your PC completely stable, and think that the idle voltage can be even lower, you increase your LLC settings.
Also, set "Phase Control" and "Duty Control" to Extreme. Turn on "Intel PPL Overvoltage".
