But if the temps are higher when the voltage is lower, that's probably LLC - the higher load is making the chip hotter , and also pulling the voltage down.
This makes sense to me, but I just bumped the LLC up to high (50%) and I still get the same effect. I start up prime 95 get 1.200v at high 60s for temps. After about 10-20 minutes voltage drops down to 1.184v and I am getting high 70s for temps. Another 10-20 minutes later, it is back up to 1.200v.
I get that load should change the supplied voltage, but increase temps? I would think that temps and voltage would drop if the load were changing. Resource monitor reports that I have constant cpu and clock usage though so I dunno...
