Wouldn't we want more control over out load voltages?
Now I read through this thread in multiple spots. that us being CHV owner we get "VIP" treatment or membership with asus and get certain perks. Like they cross ship us a motherboard first and we send ours in after that so there is no down time. Any other information on that anywhere? Ive have skimmed through the ROG site and ASUS site without any really definitive information.
i have LLC on extreme. setting it higher counteracts vdroop when under load.
the ROG guide has this to say:
CPU Load Line Calibration: The “Regular” option sets a margin between the user set voltage and the actual voltage to ensure that the real-time voltage level does not breach (overshoot) the set VID by longer than AMD specifications.
Medium and High, set a tighter margin between the idle and full load voltage, so that idle voltage does not need to be ramped excessively to meet full-load voltage requirements when the processor is overclocked.
Ultra-High and Extreme may over-volt past what you’ve set in BIOS in an attempt to ensure that the voltage does not sag below the applied voltage for a long duration (when the VRM is faced with a heavy load). Auto is currently configured to default to Extreme LLC, so it's an idea to set Medium or High manually if you do not want any visible over-voltage.
