It should yea but oscilloscopes are unbelievably fast and they can record a graph a dmm can't. You won't see minute changes either but those dont matter.

That's a 100% load heading towards CPU idle. Lesser loads would still see the 1.45V being applied, but may not see as "large" a spike when it is released.

You have two issues here; the first is the fact the VRM has to ramp voltage when any load transient hits. Granted, the VRM is over-engineered and can take a bruising, it's just kinder not to do it if you don't need to. And to be honest, in the 24-7 usage model, we don't. Given the architecture's inherent limitations, caution isn't strictly required. One should be mindful that most loads are sub-150W given how limited these CPUs are for overclocking headroom - not exactly a scintillating amount of current.

Perhaps the more pressing issue from a user perspective is that LLC level's 3~5 result in 30~70mv excursions past what some users "think" they have set. But this is always the case with LLC.

If I expected the system to last for a number of years, I'd always take the complimentary option. If there were something to be gained by using higher LLC levels, one would advise accordingly. There isn't, so it makes sense to advise lower values.

I could play about with LL2 since im on LL3. But i need to keep 1.42x under full load or nogo tongue.gif. I know one thing Auto does not Cut it :/

Though, my 4ghz voltage idle maxes as I can see at 1.356v, so will LLC3 spike get to a dangerous level with that?

The ringing itself may be a little damaging in the long run, but I'd say anything lower than 1.4v under load on the SVI2 should be "safe" up to LLC5. Over that the lifetime will probably look like running on 1.45v+ on LLC0~2. Running on 1.45v on LLC5 is very likely shortening the life of the CPU considerably.

The 289 can record a graph. wink.gif

On a side note: I wondered if AMD meant voltage after droop when I claimed that most CPU should hit 4.1 - 4.2 GHz at 1.45 V. So I upped my Vcore to get 1.45 V under full load, but still couldn't get 4.1 GHz stable, even less so 4.2 Ghz. Both booted and were usable, but not stable.

Try bclk overclock. I'm running my 3000 MHz kit at 3200 with 120 bclk :-D I'd just rather use multiplier

This is where elementary understanding of LLC helps. You just need to set the correct VID to get the required load voltage. Nothing else to it, really.

G.Skill F4-4000C18D-16GTZSW just arrived. Let's make sure that all those instabilities at 3600-CL16 were not just down to my 3200-CL14 dimms not making it that far. wink.gif

Ringing?
