Your load voltage of 1.232v being the same for stability with both settings isn't sitting well with me.
I think with further testing with LLC off, you will find you can get that lower.

I did try lowering it, one step below that offset voltage will produce an error in prime95, one step back up and it will run all day.

Well, I guess it is what it is. But those numbers don't make sense to me. Maybe it's got something to do with your board, or another setting. I have also found that enabling CPU Spread Spectrum helps, when the majority of guides say to disable it. It was this way with my 2600k, as well as my current 3930k. Go figure. But, I've always been able to get my clocks stable at a lower load voltage with LLC off than with it on, and with CPU Spread Spectrum enabled.

Disabling CPU Spread Spectrum is only beneficial for BCLK and FSB overclocking.
