So why does nvidia not do this? why do they prefer a higher bios voltage and lower LLC regulation?

Nvidia runs LLC @ 53% to protect the cards from damage, and to prolong life span. They do this for the exact same reasons Intel & AMD do it, which once again, is to protect the card, reduce heat, & prolong lifespan.
I understand the LLC function is when changing clock and voltage there is a short moment when more voltage is needed than the one needed once it is stable. For example card idle at 300mhz with ex 0,8v then the card is put under load, 1150mhz and 1,212v soon after the LLC tells how much the v can drop and the volts go down to example 1,18. If it would jump directly to 1150/1,18 there would be more risk to crash. If it would stay at 1,212 it would use more current for nothing.
Tell me if I'm wrong.
By the way I just readed ten pages of this thread
On my pc I reinstalled windows 7, by the updates in the first 3 days it got unstable, means it sometime fails at boot
I'm also having some strange slow downs almost like Luna
(haven't disabled the services running in background yet).
Question what drivers do you run? I installed the 314 as, if I remember correctly, crysis2 worked at best with these.
If you like fps games and fast action I invite you to come to play crysis2 multiplayer, the 10$ for crysis2 maximum edition are the money I best spent in my life (well no maybe at first place I'd put a condom)
