Are you saying you always crash in planetside 2 while overclocking regardless of Fixed/Offset voltage?

I don't know if this is a noob question or not but if my vcore drops from 1.272 to 1.260 under load, does that mean that I could set the vcore at 1.260 and crank the LLC up to make the 1.260v constant and still be stable?

why you wanna run it constant with no droop.?

I don’t have a Gigabyte board, but I run my rigs at Ultra High LLC, which is 75%, and that is the equivalent of almost no vdroop. I think it make more sense and is easier to oc when you know what your max voltage will be. If you use offset voltage then your idle vCore drops way down and speedstep downclocks the chips so it is not like you are running a high voltage all the time.

You can, but keep in mind LLC pushes a constant voltage through your entire chipset, so while your CPU will require a lower voltage setting you are still pumping some juice through the whole setup. Vdroop is not a bad thing.

Also if your CPU is using less voltage at any given task it could be do to power states and the CPU not needing the full voltage.

I might just leave it as it is then, I was just thinking that a slightly lower vcore would be slightly better for the heat output, but if it will mess with other things too I'll leave it as it is. It's not like 65°C at 1.272V is much of an issue.

How exactly does reducing vdroop push more voltage through my chip at all time when it downclocks to 1600 an about 1.0v when idle?

75% LLC equals basically no vdroop and I have an idle vCore of about 1.05 and a load vCore of about 1.41v. Say I take your advice and I increase vdroop by lowering LLC to 50% then my idle vCore stays about the same but then my load vCore decreases by around .03 so I now have to raise my bios voltage by that much to stay stable.

After increasing bios voltage because I lowered LLC and raised vdroop I now have the same load vCore as no vdroop but my idle vCore has now increased and I because of vdroop I get spikes of vCore well above my previous 1.41 limit.

So by you guys saying to increase vdroop you have increased my idle voltage measurably, increased my bios voltage settings, and also measurably increased the high voltage spike that occur when using the machine. That is why I use no vdroop.
