My board only has enabled or disabled. Which is fine for me, as it eliminates vdroop and vdrop only occurs by about .01v down at load, which is also perfect for me. So I would set yours for the lowest setting and set vcore accordingly to avoid massive spikes of voltage.

Look at what I have in progress

Currently 2 hrs into prime 95 with 4.6GHz at 1.32v. I have it set to 1.28v in the BIOS. We'll see how long this lasts... I'm liking my new hardware more and more!

Til i plan out some water im just gonna keep running it with the window slightly cracked to bring my ambient down a few degrees
Bro, don't sweat those temps so much AT ALL. People are confusing the max temps on these as 72c, which is soooooo far from true. The TCASE on these is 72c, not max temps. To put it into perspective, on the i7 920, tcase was 68c. And it's common knowledge that you should just keep your temps under 85c for that processor. So apply that to this.... 4c higher tcase, keep your temps 90c or under.

Lowest settings as in disable or to extreme ?

what are your options? like low, medium, ultra high, and extreme? If these were your options, I'd personally pick low or medium and just set my vcore a tad bit higher in bios. LLC raises your vcore under load to eliminate vdroop and vdrop. BUT, llc also has spikes that occur, that you don't see with monitoring software, as they only happen for milliseconds. Say you have your vcore set at 1.4v, and under load llc raises it to 1.42v. That's fine, but what you don't see is that for microseconds, it may raise to 1.46-1.48v. which is also ok, AS LONG AS your vcore isn't set anywhere close to the max voltage for the chip.

To add to this, Sandybridge begins throttling around 95-98C, which further facilitates the fact of how high you really can go. So I'd agree with this in saying under 85-90C is ideal temperatures for Sandybridge.

I believe it's like low, medium, high, ultra high, extreme.

Ultra high is at 75 percent or 100 percent, not exactly sure until I can check after checking your CPU PLL theory

EDIT: my vcore is set to 1.30 and probably another 0.005 later down for stability.

I have my LLC on Extreme and my VRM Phase on Optimized, then I just set the voltage 0.05 lower than what I intend for and LLC takes it from there.

But all of us have our different methods

I'd go with low, or medium.

Really hope this helps some that were having issues, and even some that weren't lol. Good night OCN.
