No, thermal throttling occurs when your chip gets too hot. I tried to stay below 70C on my suicide run, and didnt experience any thermal throttling. (Everest has a nice graph for that)
I read somewhere that it is not a good idea to turn on LLC (Load Line Calibration) either coz you can get big spikes in voltages.
Again any thoughts on this.
I agree with what you've read, LLC is bad, especially when your overclocking. Cant tell you anything about your voltages though, still trying to figure that stuff out myself.
edit: My Vcore dropped from 1.392 to 1.360 on full load. I had to reset my CMOS jumper a couple of days ago, and I guess I forgot to turn LLC off
It did what it supposed to do though, decrease Vdroop.
edit 2: LLC impoved my stability though, so Im leaving it on for now, havent tried it with my new voltage settings yet.Edited by spar - 5/1/09 at 5:57am
