i7 - For those w/o LLC - Whats your vCore?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

So from what I've been reading, it'd be best to leave LLC disabled. Its a ASUS mother board feature, not a feature that came with out processors and it infringes on the processors voltage.

That being said, when I disable LLC I need to increase my vCore significantly. For those of you who have done so, what is your over clock + vCore?

well lets see

bios setting

1.46 max voltage


Windows Idle

1.43v

Prime 95 Load 8 threads

1.388v

total droop - 0.072v from bios setting

All you need to be paying attention to is your Vcore under load.

You didn't actually increase your Vcore after you turned off LLC. You're just now seeing the maximum voltage that your chip was hitting before anyway.

BIOS set voltage with LLC on = minimum voltage to CPU
BIOS set voltage with LLC off = maximum voltage to CPU

1.225v set in bios, 1.164v under load, 4ghz HT off.

And AyeYo hit the nail on the head: LLC on or off doesn't change the amount of voltage needed.

best way ive seen this explanation given! people freak when i say i have 1.46 in bios but the true voltage is 1.388 under load
