LLC doesn't change from CPU to board it does the same thing on a AMD socket CPU/board as it does with a Intel socket/board.
I am just saying you could run at lower CPU voltages if you were to reduce LLC because running at a high LLC makes your voltage drop under load regardless of chip set thus making it so you need a higher voltage to run things under load.
And with a lower LLC you will see more stable voltages underload.
Heres a little explanation of what Vdroop is if you don't understand to help you out a bit.
Low Vdroop setting = increased voltage under load.
High Vdroop setting = reduced voltage under load.
High Vdroop setting (52%) - with my Vdroop settings set to 52% my voltage under load went from 1.35 to 1.28 and thus I received a BSOD.
Low Vdroop setting (19%) - with my Vdroop set to 19% my voltage under load goes from 1.35 to around 1.32-1.36.
So mainly with a lower Vdroop you can preform more stable OCs, but always do a quick test run before you just ignore it just in case you huge spikes in voltage i.e. 1.425-1.45 because that can harm your CPU.
FYI if your wondering about the percentages with my motherboard I can adjust my settings by 3% increases or decreases and 0% = off for me while %100 = fully on.
Also here is an actual review site coming up with the same findings as I just explained in more depth. Yes it is a AMD board but the same concept applies.
But overall yes you may experience a small increased voltage underload, but overall it makes for a more stable OC in the end and it will make it so you can run at a overall lower voltage in your CPU voltage setting because you won't have to counter act the Vdroop voltage drops under load.
low llc = 1.35v idle 1.295 load
high llc = 1.35v idle 1.312 load
extreme llc = 1.35v idle 1.38v load
Low llc = low level voltage input under load
high llc = high voltage level input under load to counteract vdroop
