Hmmm.... guess that's another GOOD reason for something my new case has, it's own seperate (like 10 I think) female-fan-power-wiring harneses. They get their power from a single MOLEX connector so any fan you connect to them runs full time at whatever speed you set the dial for. Sounds like in the case of this MB that might be a very nice option....
JUST one question, does the POST-up "know" and if so, "CARE" whether or not anything is plugged in to the CPU fan power header on the mobo?
Simple enough to find out I guess!! I may test that when my new CPU cooler is being installed....

What's the board concensus on that one anyway? "Regular" ? W-T-Heck's the difference anyway between say NORMAL and MEDIUM? Does anybody know?

Thanks guys!
After playing with two different PSU's: one Sirtec 560 W / 17/16/18A triple rail and one Intertech 750 W / 4x20A quad rail I came to the conclusion that setting "Regular LLC" results in lowest VCore boost/variation (e.g. 1.39-1.43 V). Increasing LLC to "Medium", "High", "Ultra High" etc results in larger vCore Boost accordingly (e.g. 1.39-1.44, 1.45, 1.46V).

Well I'm glad I bought the Enzotech MST-88 when I did! According to Newegg its discontinued and out of stock! I wonder if there are any other options out there for the people who buy this curse of a board.

sooooo by "variation" you mean the "spread"? or variation as in HIGHER vs LOWER because I assumed the actual AMOUNT OF BOOST was determined mostly by the VCORE voltage setting. Or is the LLC some combination of the two?
SO If it's controlling (at least in part) the allowable "drift" of CPU voltage, I'm still not clear which end of the regular to Extreme spectrum is TIGHTER and which is WIDER, IF it's even contoling that at all. Suffice to say I'm still not clear on what (you're saying) it's doing.

dang! I guess I better try and grab one now in case I decide I need it.... (from other than NE)

Enzotech MST-88
Got it !
Still in stock at FrozenCPU.com
$16 and $7.50 for shipping so they're making a buck or 2 on the shipping. Pretty much the same deal as NE give or take a buck....

LLC
this page seems to cover it pretty well

From what I gather there's two ways to play it
you can manually set your CPU voltage "high-ish", then choose a lower LLC and it will cut back the voltage under load.
OR you manually set the CPU voltage "lower-ish" then choose a higher level LLC and it will actually pump-up the voltage under load.
or in theory, shoot for a "sweet spot" in the middle that won't "push" or "pull" your voltage, (under load) one way or the other. HOW exactly that 3rd option differs from just leaving it on AUTO is what I'm still a little fuzzy on.....

Performance PCs.com has both the Enzotech and the Thermalright mosfet coolers. But they are expensive and their shipping costs are quite high. I want that Thermalright cooler but it feels like I'm getting taken. Shipping is almost as much as the cooler. Still, it is 48mm / 2" tall which puts it well into the wind tunnel between two big fans on my setup.

Thanks! That's good too. I had the what, that link gives the what-for. Very Good.
SO THEN understanding the WHAT-FOR a little better the "play" obviously is to manually set the cpu voltage at the upper limits of what you want and then choose an LLC that will trim it back but only the least-trim possible. In the case of our UD3 I'm guessing "Medium"?
