It's OK though, I think I'll still be able to get some pretty good clocks on low enough voltages.
My LLC is set to ultra high like in the guide. Does that mean I should bump it down one notch? My old overclocks prior to reading this guide were pretty unstable and I believe LLC was a huge reason why with this guide I have much better voltages and stability. I'm going to try it anyways but I'm just curious what LLC is all about.
I would say bump it down and monitor what the voltage is

Really depends on each chip.
Ultra HIgh is better for me too

1.200v is as high as I can go without it going red.
I have LLC on ultra high..
Any help would be most Welcome...
Just a bit more Info that might help....I have a very stable OC at 4.4Ghz using offset mode but it's at 1.256V Full load and with my VID Showing only 1.236V Full load (I'm not to sure if that's ok (Safe) to have more volts than the VID is Showing)
Going red isn't a problem.
MAKE SURE it is 1.2v that you are putting and not something else.
And what your EDIT said, is perfectly fine and perfect!
You can go on offset if you want now - IF you are stable

I did this test. It failed in a minute. But as I said in the previous post, RAM set to 11-11-11-28 passed 24 hours of Prime95 Custom Blend and 1.5 hour of Memtest86+.
Yeah, I would first start with your ram, and work out what's going on there - once that's solved, then move to OC.
Please be testing your OC on MANUAL and not offset.
Finding your stability on offset might be something trickyLADS:
I thought, screw revision and do some videos on OC'ing your system.
Just finished recording 3 CHUNKS of 25min videos!
So yes, I spent around 75mins recording!
Video to come soon, after it finishes rendering and uploading I will post it here. It addresses EVERYTHING - I even am able to show you the effects of LLC and a BSOD (unexpected lol)
