Sounds like you got a too high value for LLC and it might make your vcore overshoot. You should have 0 llc for offsets and llc enabled for fixed vcore. With 0 llc in offset mode your idle vcore will be low but not too low as to cause instability and your load vcore will droop a bit, but if you have a high enough offset you can compensate it.
In my motherboard there are 5 LLC settings, levels 1 through 5. Level 1 is the highest compensation,Level 5 being the lowest. No matter what I try (I've tried 3 BIOS') it's always stuck on LLC 1 , the highest compensation.
My system is perfectly stable atm, that's not the problem. I mean, yes, it's a pain where the sun don't shine, but the main problem is the varying voltage. Is that due to LLC?
I was previously using fixed mode ( No problem running 100% load all the time) but someone told me that the LLC levels didn't work with fixed, only offset

If all goes as planned I will probably take 8 gigs of my miracle ram and throw it in that box, and leave my sig rig with the remaining 8.
The RAM overclocks great on my board, as the GPU. I have full faith that the CPU would do the same. I'm currently not limited by temps or volts, just the stupid fluctuating voltage. ASRock approved my RMA but I'd really rather just fix the issue, since I don't know if it's an isolated issue or common to all boards
