Sorry, i made a typo. It should have been 50% on high LLC.
The load voltage with Normal LLC(0%) is ~1.335V, and the average core temp is ~63*C.
The load voltage with High LLC(0%) is ~1.335V, and the average core temp is ~63*C.
The ambient temp when i tested the two OCs was ~20*C.
I read over at AnandTech
that using no LLC is better. The article is a little dated and may not apply to Sandy Bridge though. Also, do you know if it's safe to touch VCCSA voltage? This is what made me leave it on auto:

System Agent Voltage should NOT be touched, it is supposed to be a fixed voltage, and it powers many things that the VCC does not power. One of the most important is the Power Control Unit (PCU) which controls internal power allocation of the processor. This voltage is to be generated by a separate VRM than used for SVID. So on the P67A-UD7 this voltage is generated by a two phase buck analogue PWM, with 4 phases, this voltage and the VTT (Vccio) come from the same VRM(not surprisingly voltage read points are right next to each other as well).
As a side note, my computer is taking forever to boot because the ASUS logo doesnt go away for 30secs. This just happened today when i got back from school, and occurred the 3 times i booted my computer. Do you know how to fix this?
