You need to higher level power options to minimize droop more.. this should allow you to actually lower vcore as it will maintain a tighter margin between idle and load transition. Set 'vdroop offset control' to at least 75%
**turn EUP to OFF
**turn off 'CPU Phase control' unless your enabling it for power saving
**turn 'Overspeed Protection' to disabled

Either way, having Hyper Threading enabled kind of lightens the load for the CPU in a sense, and that's why a lower core voltage can be used. However, I am not expecting 1.280V to be stable.
It's enabled I believe by what I'm going to describe now.
I followed what CL3P20 suggested and changed those settings. Set Vdrop Offset to 75%, Disabled EUP, Disabled CPU PHASE, Disabled OVERSPEED PROTECT.
Also, my Power Settings were already set to Maximum Performance.
So I tried running Prime 95 again. I was idling at 1.336V, but once I ran Prime 95, my Vcore dropped to a fluctuation between 1.304V ~ 1.296V, but staying more so at 1.304V.
Should I increase the Vdroop Offset to 85%?
