I have vcore set to 1.305, PLLovervoltage disabled, C3/c6 disabled, EIST disabled, C1E disabled, and LLC set to 5 (middle).
When I idle, the vcore is for some reason at 1.344 per CPUID HW monitor with 0% load...about 40 degrees temp.
there is very little vdroop (from what vcore is set to in bios) under the max burn test...vcore goes down to 1.296...im not concerned about that since vcore is set at 1.305. My questions is: why is my vcore so high at idle and 0 load? I tried upping to LLC to 6 and 7, both times idles went up in vcore. I also tried lowering it to 3 and while idle vcore dropped, under load vcore was getting down there...to like 1.25ish. There just seems to be such a range that its operating within.
So in summary
5 LLC - 1.305Vcore set in bios results in 100% load vcore of 1.296 and idle vcore of 1.34
4 LLC - 1.305vcore set in bios results in 100% load vcore of 1.26 and idle vcore of 1.32
7 LLC - 1.305vcore set in bios results in 100% load vcore of 1.32 and idle vcore of 1.35-6
I'm running gigabyte z68x board
Attached are pictures of my bios settings and pics of idle and under load
