Then for fixed vcore, you simply have to plug in the BIOS voltage set and the loadline calibration mOhms value if you know it. Then you cross-reference the 1286.9 volts to see how close you are to it.
if you used 1.350v set in BIOS with a Loadline Calibration of 0.525 mOhms, pulling 111 amps (Probably LLC6/Turbo on gigabye or Asus):
1350mv - (111 * 0.525)=1.291v.
So you would be good with 1.350v set in BIOS with LLC=Level 6 or = Turbo.
Keep in mind that this does not guarantee CPU longevity. It only guarantees that the CPU will not degrade suddenly. For guaranteed longevity, power limits and TAU and thermal limits must not be exceeded.
I apologize, ok so Current (IOUT): 111a is the correct value and going by your math that would put max safe voltage in BIOS at 1.350v assuming ~.500mv of LLC (Gigabyte, Turbo)?
I'm currently at 1.386v @ 5.1 GHz, 0 AVX, so I'm actually beyond 1.52v limit accounting for LLC on this board and need to dial it back?
