I've set my bios voltage to 1.5200v w/o LLC I get 1.500v idle and 1.404v loaded in both CPU-Z and DMM.
Thanks for the confirmation, that info was not really readily available anywhere to me.
You didn't offend me. It's just better to start a new thread when topics are that old. Now if a forum is pretty inactive (e.g. a few posts each week), then that's different. Besides, I was clearly wrong in my original post anyway, and now it just makes me feel more wrong since i tried to sound like a genius in the OP, which clearly I am not. Since there I never took into account that LLC was NEVER intended to be used "officially", so 1.52v w/o LLC becomes around 1.4v'ish.
The person who is the real genius is the one who mentioned that Max VID Was supposed to be used with LLC to get the real voltage....
On mine, its 1.392v if I set 1.52v in BIOS at full load (which, since the vcore is read in 0.012v increments with the sensors, could be anywhere between 1.385v-1.398v of real vcore). It's 1.476v at idle. That's a MASSIVE vdroop, though....0.080v droop just from idle to load...
