I have LLC set to level 5 and even then the CPU only goes down to 1.28v during Cinebench and 1.296 under Prime95 26.6. I have set the IA AC/DC Load Line to 0.01 as per Kaby Lake/Skylake guides. I just think that 0.05 difference from what I set in the bios is too big. What else can I do to try? I have tried resetting CMOS and reflashing the 0505 bios.
Try setting SVID Control to enabled.
