Yeah, LLC still has an impact, it is jut more indirect than it used to be. Before LLC directly affected the Vcore, now it affects the VRIN, but if VRIN drops too low (like under heavy load) then the on-board voltage regulators don't get enough voltage and so can't provide a stable Vcore, which can cause crashes. Same effect but less immediate, in a manner of speaking.

Forceman's Law: Any AMD/Nvidia GPU thread, no matter what the topic, will eventually include a post referencing the GTX 970.
