No I didn't touch LLC yet because I'm not quite sure out it works, didn't reach too much on it...

Anyway the situation I guess is solved now: played with my options in the BIOS yesterday and I think I was able to adjust Speedstep and the offset voltage to a decent point... But after thinking about it and reading more on it I decided that I would prefer to have a fixed clock and voltage on the CPU at all time, didn't like to see them constantly be all over the place and spike up/down...

So yeah I think it's an OCD complex or something in my head lol but I feel better knowing that everything is always running at the same steady speed and voltage. Also after more test everything seems to be very stable at 4.5 GHz and 1.304v (had to up it 0.01 yesterday night, got a BSOD while IBT was running).

So far it's looking good: ran 10 instances of each IBT tests (normal, high, very high, maximum) and Prime95 Blend test all night (8 hours) without a hitch: woke up this morning with zero problem aside from a single WHEA error that happened 15 minutes before I got up, which I don't consider to be that bad (correct me if I'm wrong to even pay attention to that)...

Right now computer is at home and folding (both CPU and GPU, full load) and if nothing crashes by the time I'm back home tonight I will conclude that my work on the CPU is done and it will stay at 4.5GHz with 1.304v.

Well that is unless you guys have something to say about it of course: I'm always open to suggestions from the pros smile.gif
